Do I need to pay taxes and import duties?
For international destinations the customer is responsible for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to. Payment of these will be necessary to release the goods from customs on arrival. We are unable to advise on how much these costs may be.
Our delivery company will normally contact you prior to delivery and will require payment before delivering the goods, alternately they may require payment or delivery, or, you may be required to pay the import taxes and duties direct to any customs, local, or national government authority.
If you do not wish to pay duties to release your item(s) from customs, you will be refunded minus any shipping charges incurred.
We hope you're happy with your Markus Lupfer purchase, however if you change your mind simply return your item(s) within 14 days of receipt for an exchange or a refund.
How do I return an item?
Return the item(s) to us at the address below, including your delivery note and a completed returns form.
Goods must be returned in an unused and saleable condition with all tags intact and accompanied by the original delivery note or order number. Returns that are damaged, soiled or returned without their original labels may not be accepted and may be sent back to the customer. Please take care when trying on items as these must be returned new and unused. Any odour, including perfume, or marks such as make-up or deodorant, will mean we cannot accept the item and it will be returned to you.
We do monitor the number of returns made by customers in order to improve services and procedures. Continued returns will be flagged and may, at our discretion, result in future orders being refused.
Return shipping is at the customers own expense and risk. We would always recommend using a secure signed for service as we cannot be held liable for any parcels lost or damaged in transit.
We cannot issue any refunds or exchanges until goods have been received to the Returns Department.
For international customers, please be sure to mark your return shipment as “Returned Goods” on any customs or postal forms. Failure to do so may delay the issue of any refund due and can result in the shipment being returned to sender. Additionally, any duties incurred by incorrect customs declarations will be deducted from the refund due.
