If you experience difficulties using your credit or debit card to make an international purchase, please first contact your bank to ensure that your card has been enabled for international purchases. This will nearly always fix your issue. Please note that all prices are listed in USD unless otherwise noted.
We work hard to get great shipping rates from our couriers so we can pass the
savings on to you. Shipping costs for international packages are based on
the weight and size of your order. Simply place items in your cart, select
your country and click on “calculate” to see your options.
You’ll be given all shipping options and exact costs during the
checkout process, after you have selected the delivery address for your
order. Delivery time frames are estimates only and do not take into
account weekends, holidays, or processing and packing (please allow 12-24
hours for packing). Please allow your order time to pass through customs
procedures; an international order will not be considered ‘lost’
until 60 days from the date of shipment. We are unable to process claims
until the 60 day period has passed. Please note: Before you make a purchase,
please be aware of the personal purchase limit set by your country. If your
order exceeds this limit, you will need to arrange for a broker to clear
your package through customs.

Returns & Refund
We stand by our commitment to your satisfaction with our products and
services. If you do experience an issue, please accept our apology in
advance for any inconvenience - you can rest assured that we will work hard
to make things right. Our Return & Refund Policy is below:
If for any reason you are unhappy with a product you purchased, you can return it to us for a refund. Refunds issued will be for the cost of the merchandise only; shipping costs will not be reimbursed.
To start the returns process, please contact us so we can provide a return authorization code and address on where to return your items.
The product(s) must be postmarked within 90 calendar days of when the order first shipped.
We highly recommend that you use a traceable courier.
We do not accept returns of opened, unsealed or used products.
If Customs removes or damages a returning product(s) during the course of an inspection or delivery delay of any kind, you’ll need to contact them directly to start a damage or loss claim, as we are unable to speak with them on your behalf nor are we able to reimburse you in any way for damage or loss that they may cause.
Errors in Address
If you make an address error on your order, please note that we cannot change the delivery address after an order has been submitted. Please know that we work directly with our shippers to help resolve address issues where possible, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays, fees, or other delivery issues if you've made an error in the shipping information on your order. If such an error causes an order to be rejected, lost, or destroyed, we cannot issue a refund or replacement of any kind. If the error causes the order to be sent back to us, you may be responsible for return shipping fees, and we'll only be able to refund you for the cost of merchandise only.

Please familiarize yourself with your country's import restrictions before ordering. We cannot be held responsible for any delays, fees, fines, or penalties incurred by your order due to a violation of law. Items sold at Metaformula.com are intended for personal use.
If you refuse an order for any reason, we can only offer you a refund if the order is returned to our warehouse in undamaged and resalable condition. In that event, refunds can be issued for the cost of merchandise only; shipping costs will not be reimbursed. If the cost of the return shipment due to your refusal is billed to us, you may also be responsible for that cost, too.
Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund of any kind for orders seized, damaged, or destroyed by Customs unless the order is returned back to our warehouse in undamaged and resalable condition. In that event, refunds issued will be for the cost of the merchandise only; shipping costs will not be reimbursed. Please note that if the cost to return a rejected package to our warehouse exceeds the value of the order, we'll instruct the courier to destroy the package and we'll be unable to issue a refund of any kind.
