The following payment methods are accepted in our store:
Intra-Community deliveries / reverse charge of VAT
Are you ordering on behalf of an organization outside the Netherlands and do you have a valid VAT number? Then you do not have to pay Dutch VAT. Fill in your VAT number during checkout. This will be checked for validity after which the shop will reverse the VAT.
Import duties & customs
Items shipped within the EU are shipped on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, meaning that all relevant import taxes and duties are included in the final purchase price.
Non-EU countries may be subject to VAT and customs duties once the package arrives at its destination. You are responsible for the payment of such import duties and taxes.
During the checkout process you can enter a discount code if you have one. Discount codes are not valid in combination with other offers. The discount will in that case not be calculated on items for which a discount already applies.
Shipping and delivery
Orders placed on weekdays before 17:00 hours will be shipped the same day when all items ordered are in stock.
It is possible to order items that are not in stock. Do you order items which are not (sufficiently) in stock? Then we will process your order only when the entire order is in stock. If the expected lead time cannot be met, we will contact you.
For the shipment of orders we use PostNL and UPS. When placing your order you can select the desired shipping method or choose to pick up your order.
When your order is shipped you will receive a shipping confirmation email. Within the Netherlands and Belgium shipments are generally delivered the next day!
For many items we offer the option to send it by letter mail. We use durable, recyclable, padded envelopes. This is an inexpensive way to have your order shipped and you don't have to stay home. Packages of items may get slightly wrinkled, however. Additionally, letter mail shipments are NOT trackable.
Shipping via PostNL Parcel is the standard shipping method for the Netherlands and Belgium. If you are not at home at delivery the courier will try to deliver your order at the neighbors. If that also fails, your order will be delivered to the nearest PostNL point. You will be digitally informed about this nowadays, you will not receive a not at home notice anymore. PostNL also delivers to private addresses in the Netherlands and Belgium on Saturdays.
Parcels sent by UPS are always insured and must always be signed for receipt. UPS will make 3 delivery attempts. After the first attempt you can choose a different delivery time or even a different delivery address. UPS delivers on business days only.
Available shipping methods and the corresponding shipping costs are automatically calculated based on the weight of your order during checkout. On the shopping cart page you can also calculate the shipping costs. The costs mentioned below are the costs per shipping method for shipping within the Netherlands
- Briefpost: from € 2,95
- PostNL: €6,95
- UPS: from €11,95
