Standard shipping is free for orders with a value of $69, otherwise you'll have to pay $9,90 shipping fees (or $7 if you choose e Packet(eYoubao)). If you're in a hurry, you can choose „Express Shipping“ (DHL, TNT, UPS), this costs $19 but you'll receive your delivery within 7-15 workdays. If you're from the US, Australia, Canada, Russia or Israel, don't choose Express Shipping - e Packet is usually quicker and costs $7 at the most!
Chicnova declares its packages carefully. An unwanted stop at customs should be a rare sight. Nevertheless, one should be aware that customs does random checks on well-declared packages from China.
Naturally this doesn’t free anyone in Germany from the legal 19% import sales tax, which will be raised on any order with a value of 26€ or more. The usual case would be to pay the taxes directly to your mailman once the parcel arrives. On rare occasions your local custom office will keep the package and you will have to come pick it up and pay the taxes at their office. On orders with a value of 150€ or more you might have to pay custom fees - you can find further information on tax procedures our FAQ.
You can exchange everything except for pierced jewelry, underwear, sleepwear, tights and on sale items within 7 days. If you're returning something because it's the wrong item or it was damaged, Chicnova will pay the return shipping costs. In any other case you will have to pay the return shipping fees. If you want to exchange an item, Chicnova suggests that you return the item within a week and order the new item directly on the website. More details on the return or exchange of products are listed on Chicnova's website.
