Shopping FAQs

Shipping

No don’t worry, the GST charges are already covered in our on-site prices. So all of the prices you see on site are what you’ll pay with no surprises.

Yes. Our parcels are sent by courier who do require the parcel to be sign for. If you will not be available to accept and sign for the delivery, you can leave delivery instructions at the checkout stages. For example, you may request that your parcel is left with a neighbour, or left behind a gate. Our couriers will leave the parcel in a place if they feel that it is safe enough to do so.

Alternatively, in the UK the courier will attempt the delivery three times before you will need to collect the parcel from your nearest depot.

For international deliveries, our courier will attempt delivery once. If they are unable to deliver the parcel, you will be left a calling card so that you can call our courier to rearrange the delivery for a convenient time.

All orders are shipped from our UK based warehouse and therefore customs duties are not included in our international shipping costs to delivery countries outside of the EU (with the exception of US). Your delivery country’s import duties may be charged to you when your parcel reaches customs. As custom duties are out of our control, we are unable to confirm the financial limits that exempt you from being charged. We are also unable to advise what these custom duties may be as these are governed locally and not charged by Amara. For all international orders we do not charge UK VAT. Territorial pricing is applicable with international orders and these recommended retail prices can vary dependent upon the delivery country.

For deliveries within the UK we use DPD and Hermes as our couriers.

For deliveries outside of the UK we use DHL, DPD and Aramex as our couriers. All couriers may use local postal services and couriers once the parcel has arrived in the correct country for delivery eg. DHL will transfer to USPS for deliveries in the United States.

Yes. You will be able to track your delivery with our couriers once your parcel has been dispatched from our warehouse. You will receive a confirmation email when your parcel has left our warehouse, and this will include your tracking number so that you are able to follow the progress of your parcel.

Yes, orders can be delivered to an alternative address in the UK or overseas. You’ll need to enter the delivery country in your shopping bag when prompted, and then the delivery address in the checkout. Once at the payment stage you can confirm the billing and delivery addresses are different, and you’ll need to confirm the details. If paying with PayPal you’ll need to register the delivery address to your PayPal account as part of their own security restrictions.

Ordering

Orders cannot be placed for out of stock items, unless it clearly states it is an order on request item, this will be displayed on the product page. Stock levels are shown live on each product page. Products are not reserved until your order has been confirmed.

Orders shipped within the EU will not include any price information inside. Orders shipped outside of the EU must include a commercial invoice for custom purposes. This will include price information, but the document is affixed to the outside of the parcel.
