SHIPPING AND DELIVERY

SHIPPING OPTIONS

In order to keep your costs for transport as low as possible and transparent we offer two shipping options to every destination (except Russia, for which only one shipping option is available):

PRIORITY POST OR STANDARD POST: The parcels are forwarded by Austrian Post as Priority International Parcels and will be delivered to your address by the  Austrian Post or by their local partner in your country. The duration and costs of your delivery depend on the destination and can be seen in your Shopping Bag. To countries where Priority International Parcel service is not available, we offer shipping by standard postal service.

COURIER SERVICE: Depending on your shipping destination, we offer courier services through either UPS (to European countries) or EMS – Austria (to the rest of the world, except Russia). The duration and costs of your delivery depend on the destination and can be seen in your Shopping Bag.

SHIPPING TO RUSSIA: To our Russian customers we offer Delivery Duties Paid service (landed prices) through our contract forwarder, O.T.S. All customs duties, charges and import taxes are included in the prices displayed on the website when browsing from Russia, while shipping costs are shown separately.

RESTRICTIONS

All shipping options listed above are limited to a maximum weight of 10 kg per single order.
Made-to-measure belts cannot be shipped to People’s Republic of China.

IMPORTANT DISPATCH & DELIVERY INFORMATION

STOCK SHOES and SHOE TREES: We dispatch orders within 2-3 working days after we have confirmed your order.

PRE-ORDER SHOES: We need between 8-12 weeks to produce a pair in your size; therefore your shoes will be dispatched when the order is ready. We will do our best to finalise your order earlier than that if possible.

MADE-TO-MEASURE BELTS: Orders can be dispatched earliest in 5-7 working days after the placement of your order, since the belt needs to be adjusted to your precise size. Important information for non-EU customers: Made-to-Measure belts from crocodile leather require an additional 5-10 working days for the release of the CITES certificate mandatory for all shipments of exotic leather products to non-EU countries.

MIXED ORDERS: If you have ordered a Made-to-Measure belt or placed in your Shopping Bag a Pre-Order for a pair of shoes along with other products that are in stock, your entire order will be dispatched when the item with the later dispatch date will be ready. If you wish to have the stock products delivered faster, please place separate orders for products with a different dispatch date.

DELIVERY DURATION

Please note that the shipping services are provided by third-party contracters and these companies don’t offer a guaranteed delivery time, only an estimated one. The estimated runtime for your delivery starts from the moment you receive from us an e-mail confirmation stating that your parcel has been dispatched.

If you are not at the shipping address you have provided, when the delivery is made, make sure that an authorized person is taking over the parcel for you. If nobody is present at your shipping address, the forwarder will leave a notification. Try not to overlook this notification.

LATE DELIVERIES

Late deliveries are to be handled as follows, depending on the shipping method you have opted for:

For Priority and Standard Post: Please inform us about overdue deliveries earliest 5 days after the estimated delivery time has expired. We will track your parcel and keep you updated on the progress continuously. Since your parcel may be stored at your local post office, a profound search in case of loss can only be initiated after the storage time at the destination has expired. In most countries this is 4 to 6 weeks. For a full refund in case of loss, please allow 3 weeks after expired storage time at your local post office.

For Courier Service (UPS or EMS) and (for shipments to Russia) O.T.S.: Please contact us if your parcel has not arrived 3 days after the given runtime has expired. We will track your parcel and keep you updated on the progress continuously. In case we cannot track your parcel and our forwarder is unable to find it within 3 weeks, we will immediately refund the full amount of the invoice to your credit card, bank or PayPal account.

 

RETURNS, REFUNDS AND SIZE EXCHANGES

OUR RETURN POLICY

If you have purchased stock items or pre-ordered shoes from us and you wish to return them, you may do so within 14 days from the date you received your parcel.

Items must be returned new and unused. All shoes must be tried on a carpeted surface; avoid flexing your feet to keep the leather from making pleads at the vamps. Shoes that are returned with marked soles or any other visible signs of wearing will not be accepted. Make sure you return all items that have been shipped to you along with the shoes: original box, shoe bags and shoe laces.

We don’t accept returns on any Made-to-Order products.

Our handmade belts are only offered as Made-to-Measure and they are adjusted to fit precisely to the measure you have given us during the ordering process. Therefore, we cannot accept returns on this type of product.

All returns must have a Return Number provided by us at your request. This number is helping us to identify your return when it arrives at our warehouse. Unidentified returns may be shipped back to the sender.

The shipment costs for returning merchandise must be covered by you. In cases of warranty, we refund a limited amount of the customer’s return shipping costs. (See our Refund Policy below.)

From the moment you have received your package and until it arrives back to our warehouse, you are fully responsible for the merchandise. If your return gets lost or it is damaged in transit, you are liable for the value of the items and, therefore, you will not be refunded.

For customers outside EU: All parcels sent back to us must be accompanied by the necessary customs documentation. This documentation, which we will send to you along with the Return Number, enables your parcel to be cleared through the Austrian Customs. Returns without proper customs documentation will not be cleared by the Austrian Customs and will therefore be refused and returned to you.

SHIPPING OF RETURNS

Your return must be sent from the same country, to which we made the original shipment.

Returns in transit are entirely your responsibility. Therefore, we recommend that you use a secure trackable means to return your purchase to us. Keep a tracking number and/or the forwarder’s receipt of the returned shipment, as a proof of dispatch.

Returns that reach our warehouse outside the timeframe of 21 days (after you have received your package) may be accepted at our discretion and may only be refunded to you as a store credit.

FAULTY ITEMS

All items have been controlled and checked for any possible faults before put into stock, to avoid the shipment of faulty goods to you. Nevertheless, if you believe that we have supplied you with faulty goods, contact us immediately by e-mail at shop@zonkeyboot.com.
