Shipping cost for orders outside EU

- No VAT charged
Conid takes no responsibility for any additional charges due to customs fees. These will be at the cost of the receiver.
Do I need to pay the additional custom charges?
As a small and slow growing company – we deliver Ex-Works. This means that any additional charge (custom duty, tax, ..) after shipment is accounted by the receiver (you) and not the shipper (we).
This is not a fun detail, we are aware of that. The bright sight to look at it: the Conid owners within the European Union don’t get any kind of customs duty since we have open borders, but instead get charged 21% VAT upfront… Which is In most cases much higher than any duty / fee.
