To have the invoice issued under the business name, you will first have to register for an account. The account is free and gives you an overview of your current and past orders. This will come in handy, if you often ship to the same receivers. Because the account will only contain the business’s details, all invoices will be issued in the business’s name.

Unfortunately, we do not offer cash on delivery. The receiver of the package can therefore not pay for the package this way.
26. Why was I asked to pay additional charges to have my package delivered if I already paid for the sipping?

It usually does not matter if a package is a gift. Every shipment is a subject to customs procedure. Additional duties need to be paid for certain goods. This is not included in the shipment price you pay on our website. In the event of duties, you will receive an e-mail, prompting you to pay the expenses. If you are unable to pay the duties, the package will be returned to sender and additional charges may apply.
28. I am ordering for my personal use. Why am I restricted with value and quantity?
Countries have different regulations regarding imported goods. This is usually to prevent misuse, distinguish from personal and commercial use, and to protect local economy.
29. What is customs clearance?
Customs clearance is a procedure during which a shipment is cleared to enter or leave a country. Without the document permitting the shipment to pass, the package cannot be delivered. Conditions vary from country to country, but for goods of a certain value, additional expenses can sometimes occur. In the event of duties, you will receive an e-mail, prompting you to pay the expenses. If you are unable to pay the duties, the package will be returned to sender and additional charges may apply or returned to the shipment centre (for packages shipped outside of the EU) and held there for 30 days; after this period the customer loses their right to claim the package.
30. Why do I need to pay customs duty?
All countries have a policy on importing goods. Even when you order something online from a different country, it must be cleared by the customs. During the customs procedure, officers check the country of origin of the package, the value of the package including transport charges and the quantity of goods. Sometimes you will be asked to provide the customs office with an invoice or proof of payment for the goods, to show the value. Every country has its own customs laws and the amount of duties varies for types of goods and different values. Package sender, like any other international transportation company, must adhere to local customs legislation.
31. What additional charges can I expect following the customs clearance?
You may be expected to pay customs import duties (percentage of shipment value and transport charges), local tax, and any regulatory charges (if applicable). The amount of charges depends on the value and the type of good arriving into the country.
However, we are unable to provide you with detailed information on customs fees and taxes, as they depend on the country of origin, country of arrival and the type and value of the good. If you refuse to pay the customs fees and taxes and the package is returned to our offices, we will not refund the cost of shipment. After 30 day, customer loses their right to claim the package.
32. How are customs duties calculated?
All packages and shipments go through the import procedure, determined by customs’ law in the destination country. The shipment is cleared through customs based on the origin country, the value and quantity, but not its purpose. Additional duties need to be paid for certain goods. This is not included in the shipment price you pay on our website. In the event of duties, you will receive an e-mail, prompting you to pay the expenses. The calculation of duties depends on the assessable value of the shipment. To calculate the amount of duties, goods are given a classification code that is known as the Harmonized System code, assigned by the World Customs Organisation.
33. Who is responsible for the payment of customs duties?
Duties and taxes are not included in the price. For example, when some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in or when the goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate. In the case of customs duties or other taxes needed to be paid, we will inform you so you can pay and the package will then be delivered. Package sender only releases the goods to you upon the full repayment of any duties and taxes.
