If the offer you're looking for does not include an online promo code, it is an in-store only promotion and may not be used online. Visit our online Deals & Promotions page for a list of current online offers.

Duty and Taxes Charged On International Orders

Duty (or customs tariffs) is set by the destination location customs authorities. It's determined based on a combination of the location of origin/manufacturing of the goods being purchased, and the classification of that merchandise in accordance with a harmonized system used by the locations that Borderfree supports.

Value Added Tax (VAT) rates are set by the destination location.

You will be able to view the total amount of applicable duty and tax/VAT for your order within the Borderfree global Checkout. As the international customer, you are the importer of record.

Authorization Holds on International Orders

Authorization holds occur when a purchase is made online or by phone. Once the order is confirmed, an authorization hold for the entire amount is placed on your credit card. Once the merchandise ships, your credit card will be charged and the hold is removed.

If you're using a debit card to make your purchase, we'll request an authorization from your bank for the transaction amount immediately after you click "submit." Your bank will place a hold on these funds in anticipation of receiving the actual withdrawal from your deposit account. We do not process the actual charge to your debit card until your order is shipped; however, we will request another authorization from your bank to verify that the funds remain available if there is a delay from your order date to our shipping date.

In the event that your order is cancelled, you may contact your bank to request an immediate release of any holds on your deposit account. If your bank is unable to assist you, please email: [email protected] and provide the following:

  • Name
  • Order number
  • Date of purchase
  • Transaction amount
  • Customer location of origin
  • Issuing bank name and the fax number or email address

Note: The exact time frame for removal is determined by the card's issuing bank.
