TheCravingIdeas Import Fees Deposit
TheCravingIdeas offer customers customs duties, taxes, and fees (“Import Fees”) estimation during checkout and customs clearance on your behalf for certain eligible countries and regions.
When you order products from TheCravingIdeas, an estimate of the Import Fees will be levied on all items. With your authorization, these funds are used by the carrier or another agent to pay the Import Fees on your behalf (or the recipients behalf) to the appropriate authorities of the destination country (“Import Fees Deposit”). The payment of import fees is the responsibility of the importer and is levied based on the laws of the country into which the products are being shipped.
Import Fees Deposits will vary depending on the selected product and shipping method. The Import Fees Deposit is an estimation of the taxes and duties that may apply and isn’t an actual calculation. Customs regulations and tax rates applicable to certain goods may change between the date the taxes and duties were estimated and the applicable taxes and duties on the date of import into the destination country. The duty or tax rate is often determined by the classification of a good, which varies by country and region.
Duties and taxes are calculated based on the market value (actual price before any promotions) of the product and not the price after TheCravingIdeas promotions. This allows destination country customs authorities to obtain the accurate import duties and taxes owed to them based on the actual value of the goods.
You won’t be charged additional fees if the actual Import Fees exceed the Import Fees Deposit we estimated. In that case, TheCravingIdeas will pay the exceeded fees. And if the actual Import Fees are less than the Import Fees Deposit collected by us on your behalf then there will be no refund which means the customs duty charges you paid to us are non-reversible.
Note : The cost to ship items from each product category to international destinations varies by item, shipment, and shipping option.
The above terms also apply to the shipment of any replacement product (if applicable) that might be shipped if there’s a problem with the original shipment.
Shipping policies for countries where customs charges are excluded
For some countries, we do not charge customs upfront and consignee needs to pay customs charges at the time of customs clearance. The shipping company will share the sum that the consignee must pay, and the consignee should pay this amount to the shipping company, who will then hand it over to the customs authority on the consignee’s behalf.
To clear the shipment through customs, the consignee must pay the customs fees. In case, consignee fails to pay the customs charges then the shipment will be confiscated or dispose off by the customs authority and we are not liable for any refund.
The consignee must keep the receipt of the customs payment for future reference.
The consignee is only responsible for paying customs fees at the time of clearance; if the courier boy asks for extra fees, please contact our customer service department immediately.
Depending on the product packaging, the consignee can receive multiple shipments for a single order; customs charges will be applied to the shipments accordingly.
For DAP shipments, the shipper is responsible for everything, including packaging, export documentation, export approval, shipping the parcel to the destination country. The consignee is responsible for paying customs charges, arranging required documentation and clearing the shipment from customs.
