What is customs duty, and why are they asking for an additional payment?
A customs duty is a tax that is determined by the customs authorities of your country based on commodity type, value, weight and dimensions, and sometimes the criteria. Because of all of these variables, including the customs authority itself, customs duty is hard to estimate. FedEx International Mail Service allows packages to be cleared through customs in bulk and can possibly not be subject to any customs duty.
However, when the value of a specific package exceeds your country’s threshold for any particular commodity, customs authorities may impose an additional charge to the receiver. Unfortunately we can not ensure that every package will clear customs without customs duty due.
Please note, as it is stated in the Notice To Customers section, that this additional charge is collected by the customs authorities and is the sole responsibility of the receiver to remit payments.

How long will my package take to arrive?
Your package is being fulfilled and shipped from our warehouse in San Jose, CA. Packages shipped with standard shipping will take approximately 10-16 business days to be delivered. From our warehouse to customs office of your country should take about 2-3 days, then customs clearance and final delivery will take another 4-16 days. This does not include any delays from customs clearance.
Why would my package be delayed due to customs?
Based on the product name, description (commodity type), and value may give a red flag to customs which will lead to an inspection. Some of our products names can be questioned by customs, such as Red Wine, Cucumber, etc. This can cause customs to inspect a package. Product value is also a factor customs look at. If a product value is claimed at $0, customs will inspect the package so they can put a price on the item in order for them to release the package.
What if I made a mistake on my address and need it fixed?
In order for us to make corrections to your address, please contact us at email@example.com or 415-814-9788. It is preferred to let us know of the necessary corrections the same day as the order was placed or as soon as possible.
If you package has already been shipped out, we can contact the carrier and have the address corrected for you. Please note: Packages shipping via USPS will not allow us to make changes to an address. You can contact your local USPS office and have them hold the package for pickup.

How did my package ship?
The shipping method can be differentiated by the tracking number as described above, unless an express option was selected. If an express shipping option was selected, UPS will be the primary carrier.

What do I do if my package does not get to me within the estimated delivery time?
All standard shipping packages will usually take 10-16 business days until delivery. These estimates often change depending on current weather or road conditions. Please make sure to check the tracking number often to ensure progress is being made.
If the tracking has been updating, but has suddenly stopped, it is possible that:
- The package is pending customs inspection
- The package has incorrect / missing address information
- The package is damaged / lost
- The package is pending response from customer to have customs duty resolved
Tracking shows that my package has been delivered, but I did not receive it.
If your tracking number shows that the package has been delivered, but you have not received it, please try the following:
- Check around the yard/house
- Check with your neighbors
- Check with the local postal carrier
Often times carriers will leave packages in places where they think will be safest. (ie, behind a side gate, under a bush, etc.) Or sometimes deliveries may be mistakenly made to the wrong location. (ie. Down the street, next door, etc.) If this happens, or you still cannot locate your packages, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-814-9788

Inclement Weather Conditions
If your area is experiencing any harsh storms or severe temperatures please be aware of possible occurrences you may experience. Our shipping carriers can have delays in those immediate areas due to flight delays and/or truck breakdowns or stalls. This can happen to both ground shipping and expedited shipping. You may see your tracking information reflect these delays. In these cases, we must ask that you remain patient while the local teams work to get your package to you. If it has been over 2 weeks past the ship date, please inquire with us for further information.
Severe temperatures can cause changes in our products. Liquids can freeze during the colder seasons and may cause the packaging to crack or break. Please use caution if you've noticed this happen to your items. If you receive your items damaged, please contact us for further assistance. If the packaging is in tact but the product is frozen, please note that the ingredients are all natural and can be thawed and then shaken to return it back to its original consistency.
During the warmer seasons your solid items may show signs of separation or melting. Because our products are all natural, you can simply stir contents and then let them sit in room temperatures until they return back to their original consistency.
