Shipping & Customs

Wholesale Orders

International Duties & Taxes

Products shipped internationally may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges will typically be due once the shipped goods arrive at the country of destination. Such charges are not included included in the product price or shipping and handling cost. Please note that these charges are the buyer's responsibility as Africa Goodnest will only charge the transportation fee for your order. Africa Goodnest does not bear the responsibility of these or any additional charges that may apply. 


The buyer is responsible for obtaining information regarding their country's laws, regulations, and restrictions that may apply when purchasing products from our site. It is essential that the buyer be familiar with the key export requirements of the destination country, and/or request regulatory advisory from its own Tax/Legal advisors. By placing an international order, the buyer is responsible for following their country's laws, regulations and restrictions. 


If a product is seized or destroyed by customs or returned to the country of origin, neither Africa Goodnest, nor the vendor or brand, will be responsible for the losses, product, or shipping refunds. It is the buyer's responsibility to cover the shipping costs when the buyer wishes to have a second delivery attempt after the product is returned to its country of origin.
