During this difficult time, we must be extra mindful of how we think about the orders we make from Buddha Doodles if we live outside the USA.
An additional customs and tax fee is charged on most international orders. This fee is not in Buddha Doodles control and is assessed by your local customs office based on where you live. Buddha Doodles cannot estimate ahead of time if an import fee will be charged and if so, how much the fee will be.
Customs policies vary widely for every country so please check with your local customs office directly to see if they apply duties and taxes to your purchases.
COVID is impacting the staff of delivery services in the following ways:
- Tracking info updates are delayed.
- Notices for orders held at customs (international orders) are not always being sent.
If you order and live outside the USA, you will need to stay proactive in contacting your local post office to see if your order is being held at customs.
Please remember that if you chose a low-cost shipping method, Flat Rate, it doesn't include the same tracking options as Priority International as stated in the Terms and Conditions. Remember this is a choice that you made, and it is not Buddha Doodles or the artists responsibility to make the tracking information update or speed up delivery.
