All international packages are subject to Customs, Duties and Search. In some cases, packages will be subject to additional taxes based on value. Studio 43 is not responsible for any duties, taxes or import fees imposed by Customs and/or any additional fees incurred during the international shipping process.
Studio 43 cannot determine in advance, what these fees will be, but we do try to minimize these charges by listing the wholesale cost of your package on the commercial invoice rather than the retail value. This provides the customs agents with a true, legal value, while minimizing your costs. Studio 43 cannot mark international orders as a “gift” in order to reduce Customs fees.
Unclaimed Merchandise
If you refuse to accept the incurred fees and the package is determined unclaimed, denied or otherwise refused, Studio 43 is unable to provide a refund or replacement order. When packages are determined unclaimed, denied or otherwise refused, Customs will destroy the package.
Tracking Information
Tracking numbers will be provided once your order has been processed and shipped. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email that will contain a tracking number and link to help you track your package. Please allow 24 hours for the tracking number to become active. If for any reason you do not receive a tracking number within 2-3 business days, please feel free to contact us directly.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for International orders to arrive. If your order has still not arrived within that time frame, please check with your national Customs department and provide them with your tracking number and carrier. For any further assistance, please feel free to contact us directly.
