Order processing:
Orders are processed between 9am and 5pm GMT Monday to Friday. Orders placed after 5pm on Friday evening will be processed the following Monday.
- Products listed in the Il Gufo e-boutique as "In Stock", "High" or "Low" will be processed and sent within 1 or 2 working days from the receipt of your payment by Zerogrey Srl.
- "Availability: Low" simply means that the product is in stock but that the customer should purchase the product quickly as it may sell out soon. It will be sent within 1 or 2 working days.
- In the event that products are listed as "Availability: On Request", they will be sent within 3 consecutive working days following their receipt in Zerogrey Srl's warehouse(s). Please note that it can therefore take up to several weeks to ship "On Request" items.
- In the event that one or more of the products are not available, e.g. if the availability conflicts with that listed on the Il Gufo e-boutique website or if a late shipment is required for any reason, Zerogrey Srl will contact you via email in order to communicate this information.
- Please be aware that first-time buyers may encounter processing delays due to necessary identity and information clarification.

Taxes and international customs duties

Inside the European Union:
There are no additional custom fees or duties on products shipped to countries within the European Union. Customers will not have to pay anything extra on receipt of their products.

Outside the European Union:
Shipments to destinations outside the European Union are exempt from Italian Value Added Tax. However, they may be subject to import taxes or customs duties that will be determined when the package reaches its country of destination. Such customs duties are solely payable by the receiver of the package, who will pay said fees to the shipping service or to the proper governing authorities.

N.B: Shipping to the United States of America
As above, products shipped to the USA are subject to custom fees and import duties. The receiver of the package is responsible for paying these fees. Also, US customs require that the receiver provides a social security number or Non US Citizen Import Number - CBP Customs Border Protection Assigned Number. Please note that orders over 250 dollars may experience slight delays in US customs.

Failure to clear customs:
The onus is on the customer to ensure that their package clears customs by providing customs with all the necessary information and/or fees. If your package does not clear customs, it will be returned to our warehouse. See our Return Policy for more information.
