On average, orders arrive to the destination address in 2-3 days inside U.S. and 2-3 weeks other countries. The delivery time will depend primarily on two factors: item availability and paid shipping service.
Item Availability: Unless otherwise noted, all items available for purchase on the website are in stock. Items that are not available contain a note indicating either the item was sold or coming soon, as well as the expected delivery timeframe.
Shipping Service: During checkout, we will show you a list of available shipping services and their corresponding rates and delivery times.
If we determine that we will not be able to deliver an order within the promised timeframe, we will immediately contact you via email.
Because we use USPS to deliver most packages, we are unable to ship directly to PO Boxes and APO/FPO/DPO addresses. Please be sure to provide a valid street address for all orders. Additionally, many shipments will require a signature, so whenever possible we encourage you to provide a shipping address at which someone will be present during the daytime to receive the package.
Shipping Outside the USA
In keeping with our international focus, TETERETE is proud to ship to many countries around the world. When you checkout select where the item will be delivered to confirm that we are delivering to that specific country. The only difference for international customers is that, whenever prompted for your region of the world, you should change “USA” (or the default setting) to the appropriate region, or wherever you plan on having the order shipped. Non-U.S. customers should look into possible tariffs and/or duties that might be imposed by local law on incoming international shipments, as TETERETE cannot be held responsible for any tax requirements imposed by governments outside the USA.
Additionally, please check with the Customs bureau in the destination country if you are unsure about any commodity-specific import regulations or restrictions (including quarantine) that might affect your shipment. A few of the country-specific import restrictions known to affect items sold at TETERETE include, but are not limited to: (a) all jewelry items being shipped to Spain, Monaco or France; (b) all items being shipped to Australia that contain natural fibers (including bamboo, coconut, straw, and cane), potpourri, wood, animal parts (including hide, bone, and horn), natural wool, or fine animal hair. TETERETE cannot be held responsible for any items quarantined, destroyed or otherwise not delivered as a result of an import restriction in any country other than the USA.
A fee will be applied to all orders where:
The incorrect address has been provided by the customer and the package is returned as undeliverable
An invalid address has been provided by the customer, resulting in a surcharge from the carrier. Such an error may include, but is not limited to, invalid or incomplete address information; incorrect zip code; incorrect state or country information; typographical errors; or transposed digits
A move or sudden change of address results in the refusal or non-delivery of an order
The fee will consist of a $5.00 handling charge plus any applicable costs related to re-routing, forwarding, or redelivering the parcel(s). Please note that there is no charge for address changes that are made before an order is shipped.
Refused, Unclaimed and Returned Shipments
Please note a $25 fee (per package) will be assessed for all refused shipments. In addition, the customer will be responsible for any return shipping charges assessed by the courier. For international (non-USA) deliveries, the customer will be responsible for any duty/VAT/import charges on refused or unclaimed shipments, in addition to return shipping costs. Shipping costs are not refundable on refused or unclaimed shipments.
Please note a $10 fee (per package) will be assessed for all shipments that are re-routed or returned to TETERETE by the carrier. This fee is separate from the re-shipping fee, which is required before packages can be re-shipped.
Import Taxes and Duties
TETERETE will cover all duties and import taxes for customers in the United States. Orders being shipped to addresses outside of the United States may require the recipient to pay duties upon delivery. Customers outside the United States, and particularly those in Latin America, Africa, Australia and Portugal, are encouraged to contact their local courier or customs bureau to inquire about possible import taxes. TETERETE cannot be held responsible for duties or taxes imposed by the local government on orders delivered to countries other than the United States. Please note that while we will declare orders containing a gift message as “Gifts” on the Customs declaration, we cannot honor any requests to alter the declared value for an order.
