FOR ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL OUR SUPPORT TEAM:
Japaknives partners with major international shipping companies like FedEx, DHL, UPS, and PostNL who work with local couriers - allowing us to ship direct to your door and proudly offer flat rate world-wide shipping.
You will be charged when your order and all payments are subject to verification and approval before shipping and may take several days to process. To help fight credit card fraud, orders with incorrect billing information or requiring additional verification may be delayed and/or cancelled.
We require between 2-5 working days on average to hand-forge your order (if it includes knives) and transport it to our carrier's sort facility. Some items may take longer especially around major holidays (up to 10 days), or if your order includes popular items experiencing stock availability issues.
Once your order has begun processing through our shipping department we are unable to make any changes (including address changes). We will only ship to the address provided at check-out.
We only ship during business days and do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays. Once your order has shipped, you will receive a Shipping Confirmation email.
For orders with multiple items, products may be shipped separately and received on different dates due to the difference in manufacturing partners’ locations.
All orders are processed with tracking numbers. You will receive an email with the tracking number when you order is dispatched to the carrier's sort facility.
For some shipping companies, it can take several days for the tracking information to update in the system. If your order was placed more than 5 business days ago and there is still no information on your tracking number, please contact us.
Shipping time varies by country or region. Specific delivery dates are not provided nor guaranteed. These are our estimates for your reference:
|Location||*Estimated Shipping Time|
|United States||7-20 Business days|
|Canada||15-30 Business days|
|United Kingdom||7-25 Business days|
|Australia, New Zealand||15-30 Business days|
|Mexico, Central America, South America||15-25 Business days|
|Rest of World||15-30 Business days|
*Note: The days listed above are only estimates in business/working days and do not include our 2-5 day hand-forging (processing) time.
While we will do all that we can to make sure you order is delivered on time, Japaknives cannot be held responsible for conditions beyond our control such as required postal or customs clearance procedures, holidays, severe weather, labor disputes, protests, etc. and these interruptions can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
Duties, Taxes, and Other Fees:
International shipments may be subject to import taxes, duties and/or customs clearance fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. These fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient. High Entity has no control over these charges, nor can High Entity predict what they may be. If a shipment is refused and returned, you will be responsible for any import taxes and return shipping costs incurred.
Customs policies vary widely by country. If you have questions we recommend that you contact your local customs office for more information.
Japaknives is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged packages. If your tracking information states that your package was delivered to your address and you have not received it, please report it and/or file a claim with your respective shipping carrier.
Note: We utilize the timestamp information from the tracking link and delivery confirmation from the carrier when reviewing damage or return requests and we may not be able to honor your claim if it is not reported.
"RETURNED TO SENDER":
Japaknives is not responsible for monitoring every single tracking update on the thousands of orders we receive. It is the responsibility of the customer to monitor updates via their tracking code and take action when an update states to do so. Oftentimes, tracking codes will state "Please contact local post office" in order to arrange for the customer to pick up the package. Packages that are not picked up after 30 days are ultimately destroyed given that it is too expensive to reship and accept the package back in Asia.
Japaknives is not responsible for packages that have been "Returned to Sender" due to the customer not taking action by contacting their local post office to retrieve their order. Japaknives will not resend or reimburse orders that are "Returned to Sender".
Wrong Address Disclaimer:
It is the responsibility of the buyer to make sure that the shipping address entered is correct before submitting an order. We start working on your order immediately, so we are unable to make any changes to an order after it has been placed. If the order has already been processed through our shipping department, we cannot retrieve it for an address change.
We would love to hear your feedback, questions, or any concerns. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how we are doing. We take your feedback very seriously and are always striving to improve.
