Title for merchandise shipped internationally will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
When orders shipped internationally reach the destination country, they may be subject to customs clearance procedures which can cause delays beyond original delivery estimates. When ordering from Deryn Schmidt, you are considered the “importer of record” and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.
Depending on the destination you may have to pay additional taxes and/or import duties, which are levied once your package reaches your country. Deryn Schmidt will not be held responsible for any additional taxes or duties incurred by your country.
Your order is shipped on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, which means that the price displayed at checkout are exclusive of all taxes and duties. We are unable to calculate the exact amount of duties and taxes your package will incur as these charges are imposed directly by your local customs. The international carrier may invoice you for the local taxes and duties, or you may have to deal with local customs directly to organise payment and release of your package.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country; contact your local customs office for more information.
If an item is held for 5 days at customs or with the delivery provider with no response from the recipient it will be sent back to us, and the cost of this return postage will be deducted from the refund of the item.
