POSTAGE - THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE
JATOE is a small business that operates in Burrum Heads, Queensland, Australia.
For International Postage, we charge a flat rate of $36.00. This may seem to be a lot, however it is the only way we can post your order with FULL TRACKING.
We now insist on charging "Signature on Delivery".
This rate pays ONLY FOR ITEMS UNDER 500 grams
If your order comes to over 500 grams, you will be sent an email with the postage that is required.
As JATOE has to subsidise so much Domestic Postage, we cannot subsidise International Postage as well.
WHAT WE CHARGE FOR:
- The postage. That is all we charge for.
WHAT WE DON'T CHARGE FOR:
- The packaging
- The boxes
- The satchels
- Anything, but the postage
Australians are used to paying a fortune for postage from international websites. We are also used to waiting between 4-6 weeks for a parcel to arrive.
With Australia Post, it can take up to 2 weeks for your parcel to arrive to you. The only reason it would be delayed is because of your country's Customs.
We live in a time when Customs in most countries, especially the United States of America and France, are taking longer than usual. There is just so much terrorist activity.
Once a parcel has left JATOE and has been lodged with Australia Post, we have no power over how long the parcel will get to you. Each time a parcel has taken over two weeks to get to a customer, it has been because the parcel is in your country's Customs.
These are part of the Terms and Conditions of our store and when you purchase from us, you are agreeing to this Postage Policy - International.
