Do I have to pay importation costs and/or taxes on my shipment?

Please be aware that all countries have different laws regarding the importation of certain products and taxes etc., and our orders designated for shipment to countries outside of Indonesia, may be subject to import fees of which we have no control and are unable to provide estimates of as they differ widely from country to country. Most countries have a value threshold on imports before they start charging duty, for example the Australian Government charges duty, GST and various administration fees on all imports valued at over AUD$1,000, therefore these charges do not often apply, and DHL ship door to door - however where it does, we are unable to take responsibility for this. We cannot take any responsibility for the payment of import fees, taxes or other associated import costs to any country, as these costs are the responsibility of the recipient. Where you have concern regarding this, as your purchase amount is over the countries declared threshold, we recommend you contact your local Customs office for current charges before placing your order or visiting a duty calculation website such as We will do our best to answer any concerns regarding this however, so please do not hesitate to ask: 

PLEASE NOTE: If the receiver refuses to pay the taxes and duties, the item(s) will be returned to sender and the order will be refunded, excluding a $80AUD return shipping charge to help cover our expenses.
