I have been asked to pay a duty fee to receive my delivery - what is this for?

Some countries charge a duty or tax on packages imported from the UK over a certain value. If your TALA order exceeds the maximum amount, you may be asked to pay a duty fee to receive your order. Please check your country's tax specifications prior to placing your order, as TALA cannot be held responsible for any tax payments. 

Is there a risk of catching COVID-19 from a parcel?

The latest guidance and advice suggests that the risk is very low as the virus does not survive outside of the human body for more than 24 hours. We would always recommend following the government advice which is to wash your hands after touching the parcel and recycling (or disposing) of the external packaging. 

Why don't you offer untracked shipping?

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer untracked shipping due to a high number of orders going missing in transit. We want to ensure all orders reach customers as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Currently, we are only able to make Klarna available to customers based in the UK.
