For orders to countries outside of the UK, deliveries to some countries are shipped on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis, which means you will not have to pay additional fees when your order arrives in your country. Duties and taxes are calculated based on the items ordered, your shipment destination, and the value of your purchase. These are added to your order total in the checkout.
This charge is determined by your local customs authority and includes;
1. The Sales Tax applied by your country for purchases from the UK; and
2. Duties charged for processing by your country.
The final recommended retail price may vary depending on the delivery country. Countries shipped with DDP include:
United Arab Emirates
If a Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) destination is selected at checkout duties and taxes will be payable upon your order arriving in your country. This will be noted in the checkout process. For these countries, we are unable to estimate the amount of duties and taxes your order will incur, as these charges are imposed directly by your local customs. Payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs. For more information contact your local customs office.
Items you exchange will be re-sent at the cost of Zimmermann, however return postage costs are not refundable. Zimmermann do not refund prepaid duties and taxes paid at the time of checkout. Should you wish to return the item for a refund or exchange, contact your local customs office to obtain your tax refund.
Occasionally stock levels are not up-to-date on the Online Store, this means items may not be available at the time of purchase. The likelihood of this occurring is extremely rare.
If this occurs to an item in your order, you will be notified by email as soon as possible and offered a suitable replacement or a full refund.
If you require any changes to your order; including incorrect address details and/or item sizing, contact Customer Service immediately.
If your order has already been processed, Zimmermann accepts no responsibility for incorrect details entered. However, our Returns process is available for changing incorrect items.
Shipments that are rejected by the receiver will result in the client incurring redirection fees. Zimmermann reserves the right to cancel any order after purchase.
Order details are available in order confirmation emails, and in My Account for clients who were logged in when placing their order. Alternatively contact Customer Service for all Online Store and order enquiries.
