Shipping

It is important to note that import taxes and additional charges are NOT included in the payment of your order. The destination country’s customs agency may select your shipment for assessment and could charge these duties and taxes. Since customs policies and import duties vary from country to country, it might be a good idea to check with your local customs office before you order.

Shipping costs are calculated once all products are added to the shopping cart (prior checkout), this is because freight is calculated on weight or volume. We work hard to keep the freight price as low as possible. Please note, from time to time freight calculation might not be accurate. If this is the case we will contact you asap.

We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations. Shapers uses a number of different postal and courier partners to ensure the best delivery service and most reasonable rate available. All international orders are shipped with DHL.

International orders may be subject to local charges. Any customs or import duties and associated fees are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Shapers cannot be held responsible for any additional charges on your order, nor can we accept a return of the order in this case. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so please contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay these charges your parcel may be abandoned, and Shapers will not be held responsible for any loss of funds as a result of this occurrence. We cannot mark International orders as a gift in order to bypass or reduce any customs fees. This is an illegal practice and as an established business we will not do this.
