INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING DISCLAIMER

International customers must pay applicable sales tax, duties and customs charges which are determined by your local government and varies by country. Duties, taxes and/or customs fees will be an additional amount collected upon delivery of your order. We are unable to provide you with the exact amount of the charges. Your order confirmation details only the amount collected by Tropic Isle Living, please contact your local government for specific details. By completing your order you agree to pay all applicable fees. If you refuse or return your order no international shipping charges or fees paid to local government will be refunded.

International Orders are shipped by USPS – The United States Postal Service and UPS. Delivery time varies but is estimated at 7-14 business days for USPS Priority, depending on your country’s customs regulations and procedures. If you don’t receive your package within several weeks, check with your local post office and local customs office as they could be holding your package for payment of duties. We appreciate hearing from you when you receive your package so we have realistic estimates to tell our other customers in your country.

We wish we could offer a cheaper alternative to the cost of USPS international shipping rates, but we can’t. USPS has consistently raised international rates, and Priority Mail International is the cheapest available option that provides tracking/delivery confirmation for overseas addresses.
