When orders shipped internationally reach your destination country, they may be subject to customs clearance procedures, which can cause delays beyond original delivery estimates. Distal Phalanx is unable to anticipate taxes applied by the destination country’s Customs Office. Any additional taxes, fees, tariffs, import duties and surcharges levied by destination countries are the sole responsibility of you, the customer.
Distal Phalanx cannot determine the amount, if any that will be charged, therefore we encourage you to check with the Customs Office in the destination country to ascertain any additional charges prior to purchase.
If you refuse to pay the taxes and duties payable by the destination country your parcel will be returned to us at your expense and we will be forced to charge you the return fees incurred from the refund of the original purchase price.
From time to time shipments can be held with customs until the recipient pays any taxes and duties payable, therefore please ensure a correct contact phone number is provided at checkout when you place your order.Failed Deliveries & Returned Packages
In the case where Australia Post is unable to deliver a package due to an incorrect address, the customer’s refusal to pay duties, multiple failed attempts to reach the customer at point of delivery, or otherwise, Distal Phalanx is not liable for payment of return shipping costs levied by the courier (which includes any unpaid customs or taxes.). In addition to this, Distal Phalanx is not responsible for any fees incurred upon re-shipping merchandise to the customer. In cases such as these, the customer is responsible for all shipping costs associated with returned packages due to failed delivery.
Lost or stolen packages
Once we have lodged your package with Australia Post, we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.
