Terms & Conditions

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to changes introduced by our courier partners to EU shipping following new EU regulations, we are currently shipping as normal to the following destinations outside the UK - France, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Ireland and Italy. All other destinations require min order value of €150 due to new EU regulations. We are working closely with the Courier companies to address the new regulations and will post updates on this page when available.

SHIPPING UPDATE – EU ORDERS

Orientica are delighted to announce EU Deliveries are now available to select European destinations (see update above). We have updated our product pricing for all our EU customers to include Customs Clearance fees which covers the charges introduced following the departure of the UK from the European Union.


Why have prices changed for European orders?

We have simplified shipping to the EU to include the Customs Clearance fees in your purchase to avoid unnecessary delays and request for fees before your parcel is delivered.

CUSTOMS CLEARANCE EXPLAINED

What does custom clearance  mean?

All goods shipped from the UK to EU destinations are subject to Customs Clearance charges which do not include your shipping fees which will be calculated at checkout.

How long does customs clearance take?

Typically, customs clearance can be up to 24 hours. All paperwork will be taken care of  in-house by us which ensures your order will be delivered direct to your door without unnecessary delays which are associated with Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) which would involve customs duties being paid by the customer before it is released by customs for delivery resulting in delays.

Why we include Customs Clearance in our prices?

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, shipping products to EU destinations (Distance Selling) has resulted in new EU VAT and customs rules. When placing an order for shipping to the EU, VAT, Customs Duties and customs clearance fees based on your location may apply and are payable before delivery.

All our products are now customs cleared. What this means is Al Haramain Perfumes UK will cover all import duties and taxes, and customs clearance for orders shipped to EU destinations. Inclusive customs duties mean shopping with Orientica, has never been easier.

To place an order for delivery into the EU from the UK, you will need to accept our terms and conditions before proceeding to checkout. If you have any questions regarding your order, please email us at sales@orientica.co.uk

Shipping (Postage & Packaging)

We endeavour to process and dispatch all orders within 1 - 2 working days. On rare occasions, items may be out of stock in our warehouse whilst showing as available on the website. In such circumstances we will e-mail or call you ASAP to arrange a refund or exchange. We always use a next-day delivery service for shipping orders, although no delivery company actually guarantees delivery 'next day'. However, in our experience 99% of dispatched orders are received by the customer the next working day. 4 Corners Distribution Ltd cannot be held liable in any way if the delivery company is responsible for any delays. Please note that when an order has been dispatched, a 'dispatch confirmation' email is automatically sent to the customer's email address. The purpose of this email is to alert customers of imminent delivery so that they can make arrangements to receive the parcel.

  1. Shipping charges are calculated according to the weight of the items ordered.
  1. At Present, we do not have automatic shipping calculations for destinations outside the UK. For such orders, you may e-mail us for a shipping quote. Alternatively, you may place your order and choose the 'Non UK customers' option. After receiving your order, we will e-mail you your shipping options within 1-2 working days. Payment will only be processed if and when you confirm your preferred shipping method.


If by chance you are not able to receive your order, the delivery driver will normally 'card' your property with details of how to pick the parcel up from the delivery company's local depot. The delivery company may charge 4 Corners Distribution Ltd for redelivery if you are unable to visit the depot, in which case we reserve the right to ask you to pay the redelivery charge before it is arranged.

Please note that orders dispatched on Friday may be delivered on Monday as that is the next working day, however for a small fee we can arrange for a Saturday delivery.
