Customs, Duties and Handling Fees:
DHL: For orders shipped via DHL, the customer will be responsible for all shipping costs including any relevant duties, customs fees and handling fees as part of the shipping cost. DHL is the sole shipping method to several countries including UK and Germany due to issues with items being withheld by customs or large fees. Additional charges for taxes and customs clearance must be borne by the recipient.
UPS: For orders shipped via UPS, the customer will be responsible for all shipping costs including any relevant duties, customs fees and handling fees as part of the shipping cost. Additional charges for taxes and customs clearance must be borne by the recipient.
USPS: USPS orders may be subject to import/value added taxes and customs duties/fees levied by the destination country. Additional charges for taxes and customs clearance must be borne by the recipient and in some cases are up to 20% of order value.
Unfortunately we are not able to alter the declared value of packages. In our experience these duties and fees are charged for orders shipped to UK, selected European countries, Canada as well as Australian orders over AU$1000.
Please also note that although we offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on our products where we will refund the cost of the products after we have received them back, we cannot cover the cost of return shipping which in some cases is significant. Please see above for returns policy.

International packages are provided tracking information.
Orders shipped Priority International usually takes 6-14 business days for delivery after shipping. Express International orders will take 3-5 business days for delivery. Delays in customs add to these shipping times and we have had customers in South America and some areas of Europe where orders have taken several weeks to over a month for delivery.For orders shipped to Canada, customers may choose USPS First-Class Mail,which is the most economical service but does not include tracking information. In selecting this service, the customer assumes liability for the package and will not be able to track the package once it has left Ethocyn Skincare. If you prefer to track your package, please choose Priority International or Express International.
