Kelly’s International Shipping Policy
We are happy to ship all over the world! Please understand though if you are in another country other than the US that you may be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your customs office/or postal service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. Hello World Paper Co. is not responsible for these fees or if your package gets held in customs because you haven’t paid your fees.
If your package is in customs and not picked up by you within a reasonable amount of time they will ship it back to us and you will not receive a refund if your item was personalized. If you would then like your package shipped back out to you, you will need to pay for shipping again.
Step 4: Research Your Product
Can your project be shipping all over the world? Some countries do not except certain products and will not clear customs! Be sure to research your products you are selling! Listen for the great shipping tip Kelly gives for your Etsy Shop. If you are not sure about something….Google it!!
