Welcome to our Shipping Guide, where we provide essential information regarding the shipping process and important considerations for our valued customers. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the following guidelines to ensure a smooth and satisfactory shipping experience.
Note for All Countries
To facilitate customs clearance, we kindly request that orders exceeding USD 300 be divided into multiple purchases.
Please be aware that in the event of delivery failure due to factors such as an incomplete address, missing postal code, or insufficient recipient information, we will contact you for verification. However, failure to respond within the designated timeframe may result in the parcel being returned or discarded.
It is important to note that if a parcel is discarded or returned due to customer error, a refund cannot be issued. Therefore, we strongly advise you to carefully review your delivery information before completing your purchase and to promptly respond to any communication from the shipping company.
Claims regarding returned parcels due to reasons such as an insufficient address or unclaimed status can only be investigated within a 2-month delivery timeframe.
We acknowledge that certain countries are experiencing restrictions on airfreight, leading to potential delays in delivery. As the transportation of COVID-19 vaccines, related products, and testing kits takes precedence, please understand that shipments may encounter delays beyond the estimated durations mentioned in the Shipping Options section below.
Please stay updated on tracking information and, should there be any delays in customs clearance, we encourage you to contact your local customs authority promptly and initiate the necessary procedures to claim your parcel.

Important Notices for Specific Countries
