We understand that the love for dressing up and attending costume parties stretches far beyond our country and we are happy to offer our products worldwide. Orders being sent to an international destination must be paid for with a confirmed PayPal account or a verified credit card. Credit cards are accepted if your billing address and zip code verifies with what your card issuer has on file. If the information is not available through our online credit card processor at the time of your order placement, we telex the information you provided to us and contact your bank for an address verification. Please note this request can take up to 7 days.
If your bank does not respond to this request, we will cancel your order after the 7 day period. If you want to bypass this delay, we recommend that you pay through your PayPal account. Please note that in most cases the bank will not respond to our request for address verification.
All currency is displayed in United States Dollars (USD) and will be billed as such. Exchange rates will fluctuate on a daily basis within each country. Some banks may charge the cardholder additional fees for currency conversion. Please contact your bank directly for additional details and rates. You can also refer to the Google Currency Converter for an estimate.
For the cardholder's protection, the company reserves the right to send orders to the billing address if a differing shipping address cannot be verified.
IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
Your package will be subject to import duties and taxes that are levied once the package reaches your country. You, as the importer of the items, must pay additional charges for customs clearance. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they might be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information.
If you decide to refuse any shipments, you are responsible for the original shipping costs to you, any duties that are incurred on the package and the cost of returning the package to us. This amount will be subtracted from your merchandise refund along with the restocking fee. We are required by law to disclose the full value of the package's contents and cannot alter this value. Feel free to contact us with any shipping or handling questions that you may have.
Please see our Delivery & Shipping Information for international shipping rates and transit times.
