I print postage at home and it can't be changed once it has been printed.
According to Swiss Post, international shipping can take everything from 7 to around 30 days. However, to some countries and especially the United States, it usually takes from 3 to 7 weeks. Please consider this.
I take no responsibility for customs fees or taxes that might apply in your country and I will not put a false value on the customs declaration. The "Local taxes included (where applicable) or "VAT included (where applicable)" is added by Etsy and it is misleading. My business is not VAT/tax registered and NO customs fees/VAT is included in my selling prices. These fees are charged by the country where you live and must always be paid by the buyer.
