International Shipping Customs, Duties & Taxes:
International shipping rates cover shipping charges only. Please note that duties, taxes and carrier brokerage fees are not included in your order amount at checkout. Customs offices in some countries require the recipient (importer of record) to provide a particular form of identification before releasing a shipment. You may be required to provide an identification number such as a Unique Identification Number, CPF or Tax ID.
Duties and taxes may be due to the parcel carrier upon delivery. These fees will be assessed by the parcel carrier and must be paid by the order recipient.
Your order may be subject import duties, taxes or customs fees and it is the customer’s responsibility to be informed about them. Fees and taxes are unique to each country and the customer is responsible for paying any fees or taxes due.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country; please contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
You will receive an email notification once your order ships. A tracking number will be sent by email from [email protected] at the time of shipment to the address provided in your order. If you did not receive it, please check your spam or junk mail folder.

Occasionally customs can take an extended period of time to review and release an order for delivery. ALIVE BY SCIENCE has no control or influence over these delays.
Additionally, customs may also determine that an order/product shall not be allowed into the country and will instead return the order to our fulfillment center. It is the customer’s responsibility to understand their local import laws and which products do and do not comply with those laws. ALIVE BY SCIENCE is not responsible for any cost incurred by the customer for orders rejected by the local customs office.
