Shipping and payment
Where can you ship my order?
We deliver your purchases only to valid addresses in Switzerland and the Liechtenstein.
Who do you use to ship my order?
The shipment will always be done using SwissPost.
Why I have to pay for the shipment?
Packing, shipment and delivery unfortunately has a cost. There is shipment material (packing box, packing material, packing tape), personnell and the courier. So we cannot avoid you to pay. But we try to keep the costs as low as possible. So we only ask you to pay 2.00 Chf on top of the normal Swiss Post rate. And for orders above 99.00 Chf there is free shipping!
How much do I have to pay for shipment?
The following are the current shipment rates we are using:
- PostPac Economy (B-Post): For all orders the current shipping cost is 7.00 Chf + 2.00 Chf for handling = 9.00 Chf (VAT included)
- PostPac Priority (A-Post): For all orders the current shipping cost is 9.00 Chf + 2.00 Chf for handling =11.00 Chf (VAT included)
Please note: partial delivery is not possible.
