I have additional fees owing on my package in order to receive it. What are these? (International customers only)
Packages travelling internationally will be subject to imports and customs fees in order to be received. These are taxes imposed by your government on the import of foreign goods. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer. We will not alter our packages or invoicing in any way to avoid these fees.
Please note that Nomad Complex is not liable for packages that are Returned To Sender due to customs/duties not being paid on the packages. The customer is responsible for any customs/duties owing on their package and must perform their due diligence in order to receive their package when held in customs. We ask you please monitor your tracking carefully for any customs/duties owed on your shipment and pay them in an appropriate time-frame.
We cannot guarantee refunds on any packages that are Returned To Sender from overseas. Any packages that are successfully Returned To Sender will be refunded minus the initial shipping costs of the item.
SHIPPING - TROUBLESHOOTING FAQ
My package has not arrived and it has been longer than the estimated shipping times
Please note that all shipping times provided are estimates and are not guarantees. We are not able to offer guaranteed shipping times in any cases. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic please prepare for small delays that may occur. Please note that estimated shipping times are calculated in business days and not calendar days, therefore it does not include weekends or holidays.
My package is marked as "Delivered", however I do not have it yet.
The following information is cited directly from the USPS website - If you have received a delivery notification and your package is not where you are expecting it, please allow up to 24 hours before contacting your local post office. Oftentimes there are gaps in between when drivers perform a delivery scan and when the package is dropped off.
**International Customers** My package is being marked as returned to sender after being held for pickup. What can I do?
If your package had an attempted delivery and the postal service was not able to complete it for any reason, they will make your package available for pickup at your nearest post office for a period of 7-10 days depending on your location.
If a package has been returned to sender, it can take anywhere from 1-6 months to arrive back to us here in Canada. This is due to returned shipments being a very low priority, and only being transported via ground options. Regardless of this, packages being returned are not guaranteed and may not arrive back to us at all.
It is the customers responsibility to ensure that they are following the progress of their package delivery and that they do not miss this time frame. If the package was available for pickup, Nomad Complex is not responsible for the re-shipment of packages in this scenario UNLESS 1) The package has been returned to us safely and 2) The cost of shipment is paid for, plus the $15 fee charged to us by our carrier. This is ONLY in the event of returned packages where a pickup window was made available to the customer.
