Customs Duties and Shipments Outside the US
We are required by law to declare the contents of all packages and the value and there are no exceptions for this law. We will assign the tariff numbers to the beads and identify them as "Glass Beads, Unstrung" Country of Origin: Italy. As it is impossible for us to know the tariff conditions in all countries, please indicate on your order any specific code or term which is best suited for your country. Otherwise we will use the Internaional Harmonized Tariff Code, Section B 7018100000.
All our beads are shipped ex-factory which means that you, the buyer, are required to pay incoming tariffs and local taxes. MuranoGlassBeads.com is not responsible for any tariffs, taxes or value added taxes imposed by your country. If you hold a valid VAT license in the European Community (or the equivalent in any country), we will add your license number to the shipper. It is your responsibility to submit your VAT license number to us at the time of purchase.
United Kingdom Customs Information:
So that you are well advised on your potential taxes and tariffs, please review the rules as stated by HM Customs website. Specifically review the pages for Shopping on the Internet and Common Internet Goods. If you are a resaler, it is absolutely in your best interest to obtain a VAT Number and to use that in your importing. Otherwise you most likely will be charged standard VAT according to the latest rulings in the UK. This is true whether you shop from within the European Union or from further abroad. (i.e., Germany, Italy, France or the US)

Delay of receipt of this information will delay the shipment of the beads.Wire Transfers: There is a charge both for you and for us, so it is not practical on small orders. If you wish to pay via Wire Transfer, we will provide you the coordinates. For Orders under $500.00 US we will add a wire transfer processing fee of $12.00 US.
We make every effort to ship orders rapidly. Items which are out of stock will be backordered from our production facility and we will contact you on timing. If you submit a request for information, require a response before shipping, this will delay the shipping. We do not ship Saturday or Sunday. If you request expedited shipping, we make every effort to get your order out first, realizing that you are paying for the expedited costs.
WITHIN THE US: We ship USPS insured or FedEx insured. The options for your location will be shown on the checkout pages after you input your name and address so that shipping can be calculated.
OUTSIDE THE US: We ship USPS Express Mail, USPS AirMail Parcel Post, insured or UPS. Vis UPS shipping time to anywhere in the world is about 3-5 days. USPS Express Mail arrives in about 3-6 days, however USPS AirMail Parcel Post can take up to 1 month to arrive and is not trackable. We will provide you with the USPS Expres Mail or UPS tracking number via email when the order is shipped. You will be sent an email with the Customs Form, use this number to contact your local post office for status of delivery as this number is recorded when the packages arrives in your country. The USPS has very limited information into package delivery once it is received in your country.
Methods and Ship Time: Please note that FedEx counts the day a package is shipped in the delivery time. So a 2nd Day Express package shipped on Monday will arrive on Wednesday, a Express Saver (3 days) shipped on Monday will arrive on Thursday. Federal Express does not deliver on Saturday unless requested and additional charges are incurred (if it is available in your ares).
Notice:Note: due to insurance requirements, no package with a value more than $300.00 US will be shipped via Ground or Home Delivery. Even if you choose this method at checkout, it will be shipped 3Day or Saver and you will be charged.
USPS Insurance: We use a third party insurance for United States Postal Service. For this reason you will not see the cost of insurance on the printed postage. It will be included in your total shipping value.
If you receive an item which is damaged, please email us immediately. We will replace the item or refund your money (at our choice). We realize that we cannot inspect the thousands upon thousands of beads we ship weekly and occasionally a hole is closed or a bead is chipped. We will work to resolve this with you.
Out-of-Stock and Backorders:We do not back order items, you may place your email address on our Wait List to be advised when new stock arrives.
Pricing is shown in US dollars. Pricing is subject to change without notice. This is due to the fluctuations of the US dollar against the Euro and changes in suppliers cost to us. We work hard to maintain pricing and are constantly adding quality bead sources at the best possible prices.
