DUTIES AND CUSTOM FEES (countries other than Australia)
At the time your package is delivered, you will be responsible to pay the eventual duties & custom fees based on the value of your items. Please understand that this is a fee that your country charges to the purchasing party for importing products and is not a cost that is paid by the seller (due to the many different countries and changing fees, we are unable to calculate this into your order).
RETURN AND EXCHANGE
At The Design Gift Shop we have carefully chosen our gift items for their overall design and manufacturing quality. Our gifts are packed with care to avoid damage during transportation. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase we will offer you an exchange or provide you with a store credit for unopened products within 30 days of delivery in the value of the merchandise cost (minus cost of sending and returning of goods). Where there is no proof of delivery, this date will be assumed to be 3 business days (international delivery 10 business days) from the date of dispatch of the product. Item(s) have to be returned in new, unused, pristine and unmarked condition, with all the original packaging in unmarked, saleable conditions.
The Design Gift Shop will only carry the cost of return shipment when returning goods were damaged prior to your receipt. As proof we need the statement of the shipping company (AusPost, national or international courier service etc.) about a damage during delivery. Once we receive the prior to receipt damaged items, we will fully refund you the amount you paid for the product(s) and outbound shipping costs.
Any other return will be at the expense of the customer. Goods must be returned to The Design Gift Shop prior to dispatch of exchange goods or store credits/refunds. If you need to return an item, simply send it back with a copy of your invoice. Please note that we are not responsible for any merchandise damaged or lost 'en route' to us. Therefore it is advisable to send your package through a traceable method which confirm delivery, e.g. 'signature on delivery'. We'll notify you via e-mail of your exchange, voucher or refund once we've received and processed the returned item.
