If assessed, these additional customs fees are the responsibility of the customer. We are unable to predict customs charges as they are levied by the destination country.

Most items at EssentialApparel.com are in stock but occasionally we sell out of an item before we receive new stock. However, if an item you ordered is on backorder, the rest of your order will be shipped and you will be notified of the backorder via email. At this point you will be given the option to wait for the item or to cancel the backorder. Once the backordered item(s) arrives at our distribution center, we will ship it to you via standard shipping service, at no additional shipping charge.  We will not charge you for an item until it is shipped from our warehouse.
