For any specific shipping rate enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The estimated delivery time is generally up to 5-7 working days from your dispatch notification dependant on country.
Please Note: All shipments outside of Germany may be subject to Import Duty/ Tax which are levied once the shipment reached your country.
As we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Such charges are not included in the purchase price of DNA BAITS LTD products. We will not be responsible for the payment of any Import Duty / Tax under any circumstances
We are not able to offer a refund for returned goods which are returned because the customer wishes to avoid paying any customs duties imposed.
When ordering from DNA BAITS LTD/ BAF INT you agree to pay any Import Duty / Tax which may be imposed by your country’s government. If you refuse to pay any Import Duty / Tax imposed and thereby prevent delivery of your order you will remain liable for the purchase price of the product/s and any Import Duty / Tax or penalty imposed by your government.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country and customs duties are not always applied. Each country has its own rules for determining whether Import Duty / Tax will apply. Some countries only charge customs duties if the parcel has a value over a certain amount. Based on your country’s customs rules, it is possible that your parcel will fall below that threshold level.
Standard or Reduced Rate items (including shipping) will have the relvant VAT costs aplicable to your country added at checkout.
Therefore we ask that you contact your local customs/import/mail departments for rates before you place an order to avoid any surprises. If you require the relevant commodity codes to estimate what a particular import duty/tax charge may be, please request this by emailing email@example.com
We cannot guarantee that items will not be subject to random checks and cause associated delays and charges. DNA BAITS LTD/ BAF INT is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes.
WHAT DO I DO WHEN MY ORDER ARRIVES?
Shelf-Life Bait: This should always be kept in the cool and out of direct sunlight when not in use to ensure the bait stays in the best condition. Once a bag is opened, we cannot guarantee the shelf life due to moisture being able to access the bait, which can start a bacterial process. This doesn’t mean it will go off within days, but be aware if you open a bag and then leave it sweating in the back of your car for three months, it may still go off. Pop-Ups and Bottled Liquids: These are shelf life and can be stored in your fishing bag. To be safe, we recommend that any pop-ups once opened are kept out of direct sunlight to stop any condensation developing in the pots later on. Remember, moisture is the enemy when it comes to storing shelf-life products.
Pellets and Groundbaits: These are shelf life and can be stored in your fishing bag. We recommend these products are kept out of direct sunlight during storage to reduce condensation at a later date.
Hookbaits and Liquids: These are shelf life and can be stored in your fishing bag. We recommend these products are kept out of direct sunlight during storage to reduce condensation at a later date.
WHAT HAPPENS IF AN ITEM IS NOT IN STOCK?
If an item goes on back order, we will ship you the part of your order that is in stock. We will make a note on the order if an item is to follow. As soon as the item is back in stock, we will ship you the rest of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping and handling for the second shipment.
WHAT DO I DO IF MY ORDER DOESN’T ARRIVE?
DHL can deliver at any time up to 6pm, although in our experience deliveries are rarely made this late in the day. If your order hasn’t arrived before 6pm on the delivery day, please get in contact with us as soon as you can and we will find out what has happened to it. Please note that if notified of an estimated time of delivery, this is indeed just an estimation and not a guarantee, as many things, such as bad traffic, breakdowns or re-routed drivers can affect this. If you’re worried, though, feel free to give us a call and we will try to assist you.
