- The Products come to you: Orders from Ruze’s warehouse will be processed within 7 business days from date of purchase.
- Taxes may apply: for non-U.S. countries, orders are sent with duty and taxes unpaid. Ruze recommends that you check the customs laws of your country as to understand what additional fees may apply. For the U.S., as far as we know, orders up to USD 200 are duty-free when imported to the USA, however, Ruze recommends that you check the customs laws of your country as to understand what additional fees may apply.
Taxes and duties are not included in your final purchase price when Ruze ships to you, due to an international trade agreement known as DDU (Delivery Duties Unpaid).
Since any taxes will be determined by your local customs authority, we are unable to advise the amount you will need to pay, but you can contact DHL directly for an estimation. You – and not Ruze – will be solely liable for all customs charges applied to your delivery upon its arrival in your country. Should you request an exchange, you will also be responsible for taxes and duties on the replacement item.
- How we ship and how much it’ll cost: all shipments will be made via DHL, and a flat shipping fee of USD 35 will apply. Please allow up to 5 business days for your shipment to arrive. While we want to bring Ruze everywhere, it’s possible that there will be certain locations to which we will not be able to ship an order via DHL. If you are in such a location, please contact us and we’ll see what we can do.
We do not ship to P.O. addresses.
Please note that where your shipping country charges additional sums as a derivative of the package’s value, such sums shall be borne by you (for example 20% of package’s value at Europe).
The estimated delivery time above is provided to us by the courier company. Ruze shall not be liable for any delay in delivery.
- Don’t forget to pick up your order: It is your responsibility to accept and/or collect your order upon delivery. USD 35 will be deducted from the total refundable amount on shipments that were not accepted or collected.

Ruze will inform you, to the extent that it is able, of the occurrence of a force majeure event and will allow you to cancel the order (with a full cash credit and no cancellation fee) or wait for the Product to be supplied until the end of the force majeure event. In any case it is clarified that in the event of cancellation of an order due to a force majeure event, Ruze will not be liable and will not be responsible to any damage of any kind as a result thereof.
