How long will it take my international order to get to me?
International orders are shipped via UPS or Standard International – Mail Innovations. UPS Worldwide generally takes 3-4 business days, and mail innovations takes 8-14 business days. Mail innovations moves through your country’s local post network for final delivery. Your shipment may take a little longer when going through customs, depending on your country’s policies. We do not control customs fees or policies and our shipping does not cover these fees. When you first receive your initial shipping confirmation email your label has been printed and is being prepared for shipment and it has not yet been received by the courier. Please allow 1-3 additional days during launch weeks as the volumes are extremely high. Orders are not shipped out during holidays. They will be sent the following business day.
Why is there a customs fee included with my international order?
Customs fees are not covered in the shipping costs that are charged by Francombat®. Customs policies vary from country to country and unfortunately we have no control over how your country determines customs fees. To find out how not to be charged customs fees, contact your local customs office for more information. Most countries allow up to a certain value of goods into the country without any additional duties and taxes. Please note that no matter whom the carrier is, U.S. Postal or private, the laws and rules are the same for everyone. Each country is different and each carrier handles these issues differently when clearing customs. UPS/Mail Innovations ship’s all international orders, as they guarantee your package’s delivery within 3-4 business days, and will contact you to pay the fees before delivery.
