Important Information About Customs
I am not responsible for border/customs delays. Very rare but does happen from time to time. Shipments may be subject to taxes and duties upon delivery. Please check with your government customs/tax website on what to expect.
Sometimes a shipment will get delivered without any tax but in most cases there will be some kind of VAT, tariff or duty. It varies a lot from country to country, so there is no way for me to predict your country’s customs/fee habits. So be prepared to pay full VAT on the fully declared value of your order as well as any customs fees your country’s postal system may charge you.
Under no circumstances will we ship your order as a “gift” or list an incorrect value on the customs form. Misrepresenting shipments on customs forms is a serious offense and we risk fines by not following customs guidelines.
As of 2014
There will be no custom taxes in the USA
Australasia will have no taxes on orders under $700
Plan on 20-30% Vat in the EU. Use my Low Value shipping option for kits to try and not pay as high of a tax rate.
Shipments are made from Taiwan. Typical shipping times are 7-10 working days via EMS Air mail. I will provide you with a tracking number with all EMS shipments. All EMS air mail shipments are insured for the full vale of goods.
First Class Air Mail is quite a bit cheaper but dose not have any tracking number. Shipping times can be up to 2 weeks. First Class Air Mail is not insured.
Orders of “In Stock” products are generally shipped within 2-3 business day. If an order is placed that includes products not currently in stock, the order will ship once all of the ordered products are in stock.
We ship Monday-Friday.
Unfortunately we do not ship to China at this time.
Actual shipping costs are calculated during checkout. For an estimate before checkout, please use the shipping calculator on the checkout page.
We do not accept C.O.D. orders.
Shipping and handling charges are not refundable. We are not responsible for any shipping charges of merchandise being returned to us.
