VAT, Customs & Import Fees, Levies, and Taxes

We do not collect or charge VAT, Customs taxes, levies, and fees. If your government or postal services require payment of import fees, taxes, or VAT in order to receive your parcel, we are not responsible and will not meet the cost of your obligation. You can check your national or regional requirements online before ordering.

Items that meet the VAT or tax threshold in your region will not be able to be delivered to you if you are unwilling to pay what you owe by law. Unpaid taxes and levies result in items being returned to me - in this case I refund the item value but not the shipping cost, after I have received the order back.
