  • When your package reaches our overseas warehouse, it will be checked in usually within 2 working days.

Any false statement in the declaration may affect the insurance claim of your package.

4. Consolidate your shipment

  • You will receive an email notification when your parcel arrives at the Hong Kong warehouse. Then, you can create a shipment order by consolidating your parcels on your dashboard.
  • Please add/confirm your delivery address at “My Addresses”.
  • After your payment is settled by online credit or debit card, your shipment will be sent out from our Hong Kong warehouse within 1-2 working days. (As this is an overseas payment, you may contact your card issuer with questions regarding any relevant administration fee.)
