ATTN: INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
International orders may be subject to additional import duties, VAT, and tax fees. Customers are fully responsible for these charges at the time of delivery, as we do not collect them during checkout. All international order sales are final. Unclaimed packages, resulting from a customer's refusal to pay duties or fees, or misdelivered/non-delivered packages due to an incorrect address provided by the customer, will not be refunded or reshipped.
If an international customer refuses to pay duties/taxes at the time of delivery, the carrier will attempt to return the package to the sender. However, because we cannot cover the return shipping costs, the package will be abandoned and destroyed in customs. In such cases, no refunds or reships will be issued.
Please note international orders have additional processing time of 3-5 business days, and most international orders are delivered within 7-21 business days. However, in some cases, shipping can take up to 45 business days depending on the country and customs clearing time. We kindly ask international customers for their patience as their package makes its way to you.
IMPORTANT: Use only the English alphabet for your name and shipping address. Avoid diacritics (accent marks) or special characters. We will not be responsible for delays or delivery issues caused by address format errors. Example: Do not use characters like á, é, í, ó, ú, ü, etc. Instead, use the corresponding English characters: a, e, i, o, u, u. Thank you!

We do not permit international checkout for video games or bundles to countries other than US, CA, and MX. If you are an international customer located outside of CA or MX, please consider purchasing only our officially licensed merchandise (MD), including apparel, cards, collectibles, and plushies.
