Customs, Import Duties and Local Taxes

As indicated in the general conditions of sale, all products sold on the store are sold excluding tax.
The VAT is recovered by Cardotaku directly on the site and at the check-out stage for orders under 150€. On the other hand, for the orders of more than 150€, the VAT will have to be paid directly to your delivery provider (ex: FedEx, DHL...).

NB: Import taxes (customs fees) may be charged for orders over 150€ for Europeen countrys.

Please note that we are not responsible for these decisions and that we apply the law in force.

Orders are shipped from Japan. Once entering the soil of the country in which you receive your order, your package goes through customs clearance.

Depending on the country in which you receive your order, its market value, as well as the carrier chosen, customs clearance costs as well as VAT may be requested by the carrier.

These taxes are independent of the CARDOTAKU company. They are required by the state in which you receive your order. The carrier takes care of the formalities for you.

As the buyer, you are the legal importer of the goods and are therefore requested to pay these taxes and to keep yourself informed of the different laws concerning the importation of goods on government sites (of the country where you receive your order) and the chosen carrier.

We also invite you to keep yourself regularly informed about these laws, which may change at any time.

For information, all orders entering the European Union are taxed from the first declared euro. If you order from the European Union take into account that you will have to pay taxes in any case.
