We ship internationally to over 40 countries including most of Europe and Asia via USPS Priority Mail. You should receive your order in 7 – 10 business days, however, we can not be responsible for orders held in your countries Customs Department for clearance. If this is a time sensitive international order, please call for information. Because of the unpredictable nature of shipping around the world, chocolate & other heat sensitive items can not be guaranteed.
International orders must be PAID with PayPal and are shipped via USPS.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS: You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, when ordering from CandyCrate.com, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country to which you are receiving/sending the goods.
CANADIAN TAXES: Taxes are assessed only on goods valued at $20 CAD (about $15 USD) or more and are generally about 8-15% (depending on the province); a $5 handling fee is added when an item must be taxed. When taxes are charged, Customs sticks a taxes-owing form on the box and the box is held by the Post Office as a COD -- recipient pays the tax/handling when the package is retrieved.
IMPORTANT: The Delivery Address
Please remember cross-country ground shipping can take up to 6 business
days to arrive. Please be sure to provide us with complete and accurate
delivery information including an accurate zip code. A phone number is
recommended if possible to assist delivery services in promptly delivering
NOTE: We regret we may have to charge a $12.00
address correction charge if a bad address or zip code is supplied (the same
charge that UPS charges us, for them to correct the address). Orders shipping to a home address are subject to a $6 residential fee.
Returns require pre-authorization and may be subject to a 15% re-stocking fee.
