International Shipping Terms & Conditions
About Customs, Duties & Taxes
When ordering from 1200s.com, you're responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country.
The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of the United States & Canada (unless crossing a boarder) may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient; 1200s.com has no control over these charges, nor can 1200s.com predict what they may be.
Customs offices in some countries may require the importer of record to provide identification before releasing the shipment.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
Important Notice regarding shipments outside of the USA and Canada.
When purchasing from 1200s.com from outside the USA and Canada as a customer you agree to accept delivery of your order and agree to pay any import taxes and / or customs fees. Failure to accept said package or failure to make said payment will cause the package to be "returned to sender".
Customers who are unavailable for delivery, fail to accept said package, or refuse to pay import taxes / fees (buyers remorse due to unpaid import taxes & customs fees) will be subject to loss of shipping paid and a restocking fee once returned. Once the package is confirmed to have been delivered back to 1200s.com (which will be shown on tracking) only then will 1200s.com issue a refund minus the shipping paid and a 25% restocking fee will apply.
Postal Services / Delivery carriers will hold a package 1- 3 weeks awaiting a customer contact. If there is no contact or payment is not made for importation the package will be marked "return to sender" and the return process will begin.
Please note that overseas "return to sender" packages do not always make it back to us. Unfortunately when dealing with postal services and economy shipping "return to sender" is not a perfect system. For this reason we ask that all customers take the "delivery and payment of import / customs taxes / fees" seriously and make every effort to comply with all rules of the buyers country's importation regulations.
Notice: Refunds for "return to sender" will only be refunded (minus shipping / applicable restocking fees) once the package has been returned to us which will be proven by the tracking information online.
If the package is not "returned to sender" there will be no refund processed.
Please consider this before purchasing and make sure you are available to receive this package, pay any import taxes / customs fees, and stay in communication with 1200s.com via email or phone prior to placing your order and until your package is delivered.
