Why some prices have the % of V.A.T from my country and others from origin country?
Since 1st July 2021 the rule in European Union for Internet sales is that prices should present your country V.A.T. But there are exceptions. For example, companies that do not reach a certain volume in Internet sales per year can invoice V.A.T. according the origin country rules.
So, the presented prices include V.A.T. according the specific situation of each Seller (or at your country rate or at the origin country rate).
To where do you deliver?
For the moment, shipping is possible to all European Union countries.
From where do you ship?
Items are shipped directly from the Seller location.
How to know the shipping cost?
Shipping cost is presented in your shopping cart, after introducing delivery postal code.
I cannot see the shipping cost in the cart, why?
This may happen due to 2 different issues:
A) We missed to introduce all the possible combinations between chosen sellers locations and your country. If this happens, please contact us, as we need to check our shipping cost table.
B) You have products passing over €150,00 from a single Artisan outside European Union.
If this happens, please contact us, as we need to prepare your order in a different way (without V.A.T.). Our price to you will be without V.A.T. And you will be requested to pay the V.A.T. at customs clearance in your country. This is connected with the new V.A.T. rules in European Union since 1st July 2021.
