Billing Address different than Shipping Address
We must receive verification of the billing address in the form of a photo ID showing the credit card billing address, before the order can be shipped. If your photo ID does NOT have your billing address on it, further verification may be required. Verification can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
International orders over $500 require a copy of a Photo ID to verify the address details before we can process the order. Verification can be sent to email@example.com. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Duties / Fees / Taxes
Shipping charges do not include any applicable import duties / fees / taxes.
Brokerage Charges (Canada)
UPS CANADA STANDARD does not include the brokerage charges and additional brokerage charges will be due, if you do not have a broker on file with UPS. All other options have brokerage fees included, however there may be applicable duties/taxes.
Credit cards will be automatically charged at the time of purchase/checkout. We will not hold credit card information for later purchases/payments, however your information (except credit card CVV code) will be stored (if selected) within your account for ease of future purchases.
