What is Borderfree?

Borderfree is a global ecommerce solution designed to provide an excellent shopping experience for our international customers by presenting product prices in the preferred currency, offering competitive international shipping costs, and delivering the lowest possible guaranteed order totals. Our partnership with Borderfree ensures that our international customer can always buy from us with confidence.

How will I know the total cost of my order?

Just add items to your basket and proceed to Checkout. BorderFree will calculate and display the order total in your preferred currency, including shipping cost from our warehouse in the US to your selected international destination, as well as any applicable duties and taxes imposed by customs and revenue authorities in the destination country.

Certain countries will have the option to prepay duties and taxes at the time of checkout in which case a final order total will be provided before you submit your order. If the country is not available to prepay duties and taxes during checkout, your order will be shipped DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). You will be liable for all duties, customs, and sales taxes based on the country requirements where the order is being sent. Upon arrival, a separate payment will be required to release your order. Opening Ceremony is not responsible for payment of this duty. Please consult your local customs office for more information.

Are there any additional costs that will be due upon receipt of my order?

As long as you were presented with the option to prepay duties and taxes during the checkout process, the order total presented at checkout is the exact amount you’ll be billed by Borderfree, and there will be no additional costs due upon delivery.

In the instance that the prepay duties and tax option is not available to the Ship-To address/country that you entered, you will be liable for all duties, customs and sales taxes based on the country requirements where the order is being sent. Upon arrival, a separate payment will be required to release your order. Opening Ceremony is not responsible for payment of this duty. Please contact your local customs office for more information.

Can I use Borderfree to ship an order internationally but pay in a currency that’s different from the one used by the shipping destination?

You may take advantage of this benefit if you are traveling or living abroad.

How much does international shipping cost?

International shipping is calculated based on multiple factors, including the destination country, desired shipping speed, number of items purchased, and total weight of the items. International shipping will be calculated during the Borderfree international checkout process.

When will I be billed?

Your credit card will be billed by Borderfree when your international order is shipped.

How much duty and taxes are charged on international orders?

Duties (or Customs tariffs) are set by the destination country’s Customs and Revenues authorities. The total duties are calculated based on a combination of factors, including the country of origin in terms of where the goods were manufactured and the classification of that merchandise as defined by a harmonized system adopted by the countries that Borderfree supports. International taxes (such as Value Added Tax, or VAT) are set by the destination country. You will be able to view the guaranteed total amount of applicable duty and tax/VAT for your order within the Borderfree international checkout process if your Ship To country allows for the DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) option.

However, if the prepay duties and tax option is not available based on the Ship To address/country that you entered, you will be liable for all duties, customs and sales taxes based on the country requirements where the order is being sent. Upon arrival, a separate payment will be required to release your order. Opening Ceremony is not responsible for payment of this duty. Please contact your local customs office for more information.

Are there any restrictions on items that can be shipped to my country?

Borderfree will notify you during the checkout process if there are any items that cannot be exported from the U.S. or imported into the shipping destination country.
