- Order Processing Delivery time will depend on order processing. All products displayed for sale on designerminds.co.za website are in stock, i.e. available for immediate delivery, but we need maximum 2 working days to prepare them for shipment (packaging, addressing, printing invoices, delivery to postal or courier offices). In practice it means that an ordered item will be dispatched only 2 days after we receive confirmation of your order, supposing that the following day is a working day (not a holiday). The total time of shipment will be then a simple calculation: Total Time of Shipment = order processing time (2 days for comb category style) plus average time of delivery by a chosen method (airmail or courier)
- Air Freight for Bulk Orders Large orders may be shipped by air freight to your nearest airport where they are collected and custom cleared by the customer. This works out to be cheaper for the quantity. For bigger orders the mode of shipment will be discussed with each customer. Postal and Courier Services TNT International Express will look after safe and efficient dispatch of orders from South Africa – by airmail or door-to-door delivery. South African Post Office (SAPO), Speed Services Couriers or Time Freight will take care of deliveries within South Africa. Calculation of Total Prices The total cost due by you (products’ price + shipping) depends on:
- Price of all ordered items
- The shipping service you have chosen
- The country of your residenceThe prices are provided by each item listed on our website. Import Duties You may be subject to import duties or taxes, which are levied once the parcel reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you: We have no control over these costs and cannot foresee what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country – you should contact your local customs office for further information. When ordering from overseas, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Each package will be accompanied by a custom form (for example an air waybill). Customs forms for all international packages list the value of your order’s contents by product type. For example, our products will be listed on the form as follows: Combs’ Value: R____(invoice amount)___
