In addition to domestic shipping within the United States and Canada, BEACN ships internationally from our UK warehouse to many countries.
- Picking and packing your order takes 1-2 business days* regardless of the shipping speed you choose
- Labels are created prior to shipment. Your order may not "move" on the day the label is created
*Business days means Mon-Fri, excluding holidays. For example, if you order on Friday afternoon, your order will ship Monday and the transit time estimate would begin when the order ships.
DUTIES & TAXES
Products from our UK warehouse are dispatched in a "Duties & Taxes UNPAID" model for countries outside of the UK.
- This means you will receive a bill for duties and taxes when your order arrives.
Many countries add a VAT (value-added tax) to the advertised price of the product. VAT is included for orders within the UK. For countries outside of the UK, prices are listed without VAT applied. This tax and any import duties will be charged to you by the shipping carrier.
Whether we send it to you from the UK or if you were to buy it locally (in theory since we don't have local distributors) that VAT would be part of the cost of the product. VAT or other local taxes are not an "extra" tax that would otherwise be avoided if the product was coming from within your country.
You can look up your country HERE to find VAT percentages for EU. Minimum VAT is 15%, but many are closer to 20%. To give you an idea of what that means for the invoice you'll receive, here are some simple calculations at 20%.
|BEACN Mix||BEACN Mix Create||BEACN Mic||BEACN Mic +Mix||BEACN Mic + Create|
|Price||$149 USD||$199 USD||$279 USD||$428 USD||$478 USD|
|20% VAT||$29.80 USD||$39.80 USD||$55.80 USD||$85.60 USD||$95.60 USD|
Shipping carriers may also charge a "disbursement" or other fees in addition to duties and taxes. These fees are not covered by BEACN and may be part of the bill you receive.
Unfortunately, we can't offer free shipping or free returns internationally, but we do subsidize every outbound shipment to share the costs with you. The rate you see in your cart reflects the shipping costs with our subsidy applied. We do not subsidize return shipments.

ROUTE SHIPPING PROTECTION OPTION
When you check out, you will be offered Route Shipping Protection. Route provides coverage against loss, damage, or theft (yes, even porch piracy!)
We enable Route by default since we believe the small cost to you is well worth the protection provided, especially given the value of your order.
While we make it easy for you to opt-out of the Route service, please be aware that any loss, damage, or theft cannot be covered by BEACN.
