International Orders and Regional Laws
All items sold and distributed by Charmed By Starr are legal for sale and distribution. However, it is the responsibility of all customers to understand local, regional, and national laws pertaining to the items they purchase, and purchasers are solely responsible for packages lost or destroyed, or any legal action resulting from the purchase of the items that are illegal in their particular country or region.
Therefore it is the responsibility of the purchaser to understand and answer for all fees and charges required by Customs and Duty regarding packages ordered and shipped internationally.
If U.S. Postal Service cost is higher than we have stated on our site, you will be assessed an additional shipping cost which will be requested by email and must be received prior to shipping. Once notified of the additional costs, customer will have the option to cancel the order before any funds are accepted into our PayPal account.
For all our International orders: Please note that there is no way for us to guarantee delivery once a package leaves the United States. You may be charged an import duty on your purchase.
Please note that there is a firm NO RETURN policy for all International shipments. All Sales are Final. We also have no control over whether customs will delay your shipment, and if so for how long so do allow at least up to 6 weeks for international delivery after shipment from our location. Please bear this in mind when ordering as it may take longer for you to receive your items (but well worth the wait, we assure you!).

Package Tracking and Undelivered Shipments:
When your order is shipped (generally within 1-2 business day), we will complete your order in our system and you will receive an automated e-mail that your item has been shipped with your tracking number. You can also find this information on our website by logging in with your user ID/password and clicking on the Order History Link. It is YOUR responsibility to track your package and plan for its arrival. If your order does not arrive, then we adhere to the following process.
First, we will track your package to determine its status. If the package has not been delivered according to the carrier (i.e. UPS, USPS, etc), we will either contact the Carrier to determine its true status, or advise you to contact them to provide additional information (sometimes it is clear that they need additional information on your location to complete delivery).
If the Carrier indicates that the order has been successfully delivered, then we will initiate a trace of the delivery. A trace sends the driver out to the delivery location to verify the address where the package was left. A trace takes 1-3 business days to complete. About 80% of the time a problem is discovered that results in correct delivery of the original shipment.
Once a trace is complete, either the original shipment will have been delivered to you, or it will be declared lost or damaged by the carrier. If the shipment is lost or damaged, we will file a claim and re-ship your order at no cost to you. If the shipment is determined to have been correctly delivered to the address by the Carrier, then we will do the following based on the shipping method you selected.
No Signature Requested (our default shipping method) - If you did not add a note to your order requesting signature, then we cannot reship your order. In these instances, your package has essentially been stolen or is otherwise missing, and we recommend you follow-up with the carrier and your local authorities.
Signature Requested - If you requested that signature be required upon delivery of your package (read shipping methods above for instructions), then we will file a claim and re-ship your order at no cost to you once we have received verification of the shipment status from the Carrier.
The vast majority of our shipments arrive at the destination without any incident. We ship many orders each year and have very few problems with deliveries. We are spelling out these policies to make our customers aware of our process for handling delivery disputes. This policy is required because of experiences we have had with customers who live in high risk areas, but do not take the proper steps to ensure the safe receipt of their order.
Lost Shipments :
By placing an order with us you agree that you will not hold Charmed By Starr liable for any orders lost or damaged while in the possession of USPS or UPS.
