SALES TAX - Sales tax will apply to shipments to New York and New Jersey.

International customers may order online with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. But PayPal® or wire transfer in U.S. currency will be ideal. Due to the verification purposes for the international credit card, you will be contacted to provide more details before we can proceed with the order. Under rare circumstances we can only accept wire transfers for payments and will be contacted to provide more details before we can proceed with the order. 

* For orders that exceed the USPS weight limit, a customer service representative will calculate the shipping cost and contact you before your order is processed.


CUSTOMS FEES


When ordering from korin.com you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all the laws and requirements of the country in which you are receiving the items. Your orders may be subject to import duties and/or taxes and any additional charges for custom clearance must be borne by you. Korin.com has no control over these charges and does not assume responsibility for the ordered goods meeting local customs laws and/or duties and taxes. Custom policies vary widely from country to country, and you should contact your local customs office for further information.

When you press “Proceed to Checkout” to place your order, this assumes you have accepted the responsibility for the import duties and/or tax, additional charge and Import Trade Declaration for custom clearance. If you have not been able to complete this statement of the aforementioned and the package is subsequently returned to Korin, you will be responsible for the return shipping charge. The order balance (excluding any shipping fees) will then be refunded back to you.

NOTE: As import duties and/or taxes and any additional charges for custom clearance must comply with the laws and requirements of the country, we MUST provide the product value for the customs clearance. In addition, some of the countries requested to attach the product details with value outside the parcel, thus, we will NOT amend the product value in any circumstances.


SHIPPING


For an additional charge, you may choose an expedited UPS shipping method such as Next Day Air or 3 Day Select service to receive your order faster than the standard ground service (Please see the UPS website for expedited options). Please indicate your preferred shipping method in the additional comments section of your online check-out page.

Payment of an order needs to be verified before 10 am on a business day, in order for our shipping department to process the order within the next business day for Expedited Shipping and within the next two business days for Standard Shipping. Please note that Korin.com business hours are from Monday to Friday, 9am-7pm (EST, excluding public holidays).

For Saturday delivery, please contact customer service.

* Orders submitted for UPS shipment to P.O. Boxes will be changed to the equivalent USPS ship option as UPS does not deliver to P.O. Boxes.
