BONVU.COM receives large discounts from the carriers and we pass these discounts on to our customers. Our international shipping rates include more than 60% discount from FEDEX and UPS published rates. DHL is unfortunately significantly more expensive. For published rates and other shipping information, please visit the carriers’ websites directly: www.usps.com, www.fedex.com, www.dhl.com and www.ups.com. All UPS shipments are sent UPS CARBON NEUTRAL to offset the climate impact of the shipment - the goal is to eventually have all shipments sent this way.
Our Shipping Calculator can assist you with customized shipping rates from BONVU to your destination.
Billable weight is the greater of actual weight or dimensional weight. Our Shipping Calculator determines the dimensional weight based on the size of the shipment. All carriers use dimensional weight for rate calculation except for USPS. They use actual weight.
Conversions: 1 cm = .39 in, 1 kg = 2.2 lbs. Conversion tools for weight and dimensions are found under Support, Conversion Tools.
Customs import tax and duty will be paid by the Buyer when the item arrives in the destination country. It is NOT included in the shipping rate. In most European countries, the import tax is similar to the Value-Added Tax and there is a minimum value before the tax is collected. Many items imported do not have Customs duty.
FEDEX, UPS and DHL may prepay the tax and duty for the recipient for fast, to the door delivery, when they do, they will charge an administrative fee for this service. For USPS (postal service), if customs tax/duty is charged, the recipient may need to pay this at the local post office and collect the shipment there. If you have customs questions regarding your shipment, please contact your local customs office.
