Customs and Duties Charges

Orders shipped to countries outside the EU may be subject to import VAT.

Customs policies vary widely, with customs or import duties being charged once the order reaches its destination country. Because of this, VR Cover unfortunately cannot be held responsible for any additional charges. Please be aware of any additional fees your local customs office may charge before placing your order as we cannot mark your orders as a gift to bypass customs.

If additional fees apply for your package, they are usually collected by your local postal service provider, so check their tracking page or contact them directly for advice on payment. Beware of phishing scams that claim to be the postal service asking for payment.

 

Tracking and Delivery 

We will send you emails to confirm your order and notify you when your order has shipped. 

Order Confirmation Email After you have placed your order, we will send you an email confirming the purchase.

Different carriers are used for the first and last mile delivery. The initial shipping information for your tracking number is shown on the websites of the carriers such as Deutsche PostDHL, DPDGLS and Hermes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is my tracking number?
The tracking information is included in the automated shipping notification. Be sure to check your spam folder in case it has ended up there.

Where can I check the tracking?
The shipping notification email has a clickable link that will take you to the tracking page on sites such as Deutsche Post, DHL, DPD, GLS, Hermes and AfterShip.

As your local postal service provider is the last mile carrier, you can also look up delivery updates on their website with the same tracking number.

Why am I not seeing tracking updates?
Packages are picked up daily by the carrier but they are not scanned upon collection. There will be several days between updates as the packages wait in queue at each checkpoint.

The carrier can open an investigation if the tracking does not update for 14 consecutive days, so please reach out to us when 14 days have passed with no new information about the shipping status and we will help submit a formal enquiry to them. See our Non-Delivery policy on when a reshipment is possible.
