International orders may incur customs duties and fees. These fees are imposed solely by the carrier, and Nurture Handmade does not benefit financially from these fees and has no control over the process. We offer several options for international shipments. Customers selecting DDU (Delivered Duties Unpaid) options are responsible for all duties and fees. Customers selecting DDP (Delivered Duties Paid) or Duties and Taxes Included options should not be charged any additional fees upon delivery. Please make your international shipping choice wisely or unexpected fees could occur. Nurture Handmade is not responsible for any customs taxes, duties or fees imposed by the carrier if DDU is the selected shipping option.

  • Worldwide Economy DDP Duties and Taxes Included (UPS): A slower method for packages weighing up to 10lbs, but very stable/trackable. Customs duties and fees are paid at time of purchase. These types of packages can be insured. Estimated transit time of 5-10 days. 
  • Worldwide Economy DDU (UPS): A slower method for packages weighing up to 4.4lbs, but very stable/trackable. Customs duties and fees are not paid at time of purchase and are the responsibility of the customer. These types of packages can be insured. Estimated transit time of 5-10 days.
  • DHL Express Worldwide (Duties and taxes are unpaid with this option) and DHL Express Worldwide Duties and Taxes Included: This method is very fast.  DHL is insurable and trackable. Packages that are lost or damaged can be replaced quickly.
  • UPS Standard Duties and Taxes Included: Canada and Mexico destinations only. This option will be faster than UPS Worldwide Economy. Customs duties and taxes are included in this option. These types of packages can be insured and are trackable. Estimated transit time of 2-8 days.
  • UPS Expedited Duties and Taxes Included: Worldwide expedited UPS service. This option will be faster than UPS Worldwide Economy. Customs duties and taxes are included with this option. These types of packages can be insured and are trackable. Estimated transit time of 2-5 days.
  • UPS Saver Duties and Taxes Included: Fastest Worldwide UPS service. Customs duties and taxes are included with this option. These types of packages can be insured and are trackable. Estimated transit time of 1-3 days.
  • USPS Priority International: This shipping service is available to international customers with orders weighing over 4 pounds. This type of shipping should ideally take 6-10 business days and may incur extra duties and fees. Actual number of days may vary based on origin, destination, and customs delays.

UPS Saver and DHL Express Worldwide are the fastest shipping options. They are also trackable throughout the entire shipment process. These types of packages very rarely get lost and are insurable, meaning that if insurance is purchased and a package gets lost or damaged in transit, we can issue a claim and replace the package immediately.

Because of the additional time it will take for the package to arrive to your country, we are no longer accepting rush orders on international packages.

Nurture Handmade is not responsible for carrier-imposed shipping restrictions.

Estimated transit time does not begin until after the order is processed and shipped. 

Transit times stated at checkout are estimates and not guaranteed.

If a package is damaged in transit, please email pictures of the damage to support@nurturehandmade.com immediately upon the arrival of the package so we may assist you ASAP. Have further questions? Please Contact Us.
