Time to your Doorstep
For all of our deliveries, we use a max speed, most reliable shipping service, Express Mail Service (EMS), operated by Japan Post. EMS ships to most of our destinations in about 2 to 7 days: e.g., 4 days to USA, 2 to 3 days to Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore, 3 to 5 days to most European countries, and 4 to 6 days to most African and South American countries.
In addition, please allow Time to Shipping, i.e., the number of days it takes from your order placement to the dispatch to EMS (see the diagram below). When your order is in inventory either at Alfan Select or at craft studios,Time to Shipping is usually 1 to 7 business days. When a product is made-upon-order, Time to Shipping varies significantly from product to product. However, for most of our products you can generally expect from 2 to 5 weeks of Time to Shipping (some highly specialized products may require some additional time). For more specific information on shipping time, please refer to each product page.
Although we don’t provide gift wrappings, all of our products come in quality gift boxes and jewelry cases, making your order ready for gift giving.
Shipping fees vary depending on the destination and the total weight of the package: e.g., 2,300JPY (about 21USD at the rate of 1USD=109JPY) to USA for a package weighing up to 500g (as with many of our products), including the cost for a gift box or a jewelry case.
To find out your shipping fee, please add a product or products to your shopping cart and proceed to the Shipping Address page. You will see the total shipping fee for your (aggregated) order before you check out.
Tax and Duties
You will be responsible for any tariffs, import duties or other tax and customs fees when they are imposed by relevant authorities in your country.
