We take your orders seriously and work to get them out quickly. If you order in the morning, we will attempt to ship your package the same day.
We frequently ship internationally, and the vast majority of our international deliveries have been successful. We are familiar with the customs documents and how to fill them out correctly in order to ensure proper delivery. However, some packages have been returned by customs. These packages include some from Germany, Spain, and most recently, France. Currently, Germany is no longer available as a shipping option.
UPS European Mail Orders Update:
According to the new European UPS regulations, you will be responsible for EU VAT (Value Added Tax) compliance for goods valued up to €150 sold on any platform. At Sage Consulting and Apothecary we will not be able to full-fill orders under €150 and/or above €2500 before shipping. Orders that do not comply will be contacted via email for the next step. We are sorry for any inconveniences this new reform may have caused.
The UE countries are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
