No shipping to Ireland until further notice.
No shipping to Ireland until further notice.
We are regrettably unable to send packages to Ireland due to its rogue customs office and An Post's unreliable delivery standards.
VAGUE "ISSUES" WITH NO CLEAR PATTERN
Ever since the customs rejection issue began, no clear pattern could be found. Approximately half of the packages we sent to Ireland end up being rejected by the customs office, while the other half were accepted and delivered successfully. We ran excruciating analyses on the packages, but found no clear pattern or reason for the Irish customs office to reject some (but not all) of our packages.
We considered if this was an issue with EU's then-new VAT system, but found no evidence to support this.
If my order cancelled
We apologize if we cancel your order or one of the items.
We are very passionate about customer service. Sometimes we fail to meet your expectations. If it happens, it was beyond our control due to technical/mechanical issues or delivery delays. (We do not stock a large quantity of non-freeze-dried sweets. Sometimes the wholesalers struggle to deliver the parcels on time as well).
In this case, we will do a partial refund for the canceled items or a full refund for the order. We do not replace items because of limited stock availability.
Once again, please accept our sincere apologies for the canceled order. If you need more information on the issue, contact us via Etsy.
Yours in service,
