Payment 


1. What are the currency and the corresponding exchange rate?

Every currency can be exchanged to CHF. So if your primary currency is not CHF, you can still pay us CHF in Paypal, Moneybooker, to our account or through Western Union.
The exchange rate varies with the payment terms you use. PayPal has its own exchange of rate. Money sent by Western Union will be exchanged according to the exchange rate of the day when it is collected. Bank transferred payment will be exchanged to standards of your bank.

The refund will be done in the currency you placed the order. As Gloria Agostina operates in CHF, the CHF Amount of the original order is the baseline for the refund. Exchange rate is all the time based on a daily basis and chosen by the refund method regarding your Payment Service Providers Paypal, Moneybookers, Bankwire.

2. What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept payment by Paypal / Bank transfer / Western Union/ Moneybooker (similar to Bank transfer, but more convenient). You may see the details here: at section About the Payment. 

3. Can I Pay For My Order By Credit Card?
Yes, but you have to use PayPal. Payment by using credit card cannot be proceeded if it can't go through PayPal. We can't accept credit card payments directly without PayPal. PayPal offers a secure method to send money from your credit card without telling online shops your credit card numbers.

4. How Does Paypal Work, generally speaking?
Using Paypal you have several choices:
1.send money from existing credit on your Paypal account (if any);
2.send money from a credit card: the amount is drawn from your credit card and sent directly to the recipient's Paypal account;
3.send money from a debit card/ bank account: the amount is sent directly to the recipient's Paypal account.
Please note that Paypal will probably charge you certain commissions when "uploading" money, so please check on their site for real information about their services.
Please be extra vigilant about possible fraud sites purporting to be the real Paypal site in order to harvest your information. Don't click on links to "paypal verification" emails as they are always 'fishing'.

5. How do I know my payment has been received?
When the payment has been received Gloria-agostina.com, will send an automatic message informing you. You can also go to website and login to your “My account ”, and check the order status on “Confirmed, Paid”. If you login in your Paypal account, you could see the same amount of money as order has been deducted from your Paypal account.

6. What is the Exchange Rate if I pay by Western Union?
Money sent by Western Union will be exchanged according to the exchange rate of the day when it is collected. The amount we receive might be slightly different from that you send as exchange rate keeps changing. And the buyer is responsible for fees charged by bank or post office for the remittance operation.


7. Why does my credit card payment fail? 
Payments by credit card may fail because of bank authorization and fraud prevention systems. When you have trouble with making a payment via credit card, you may contact your card-issuing bank or PayPal directly.
The following reasons account for most cases of credit card payment failure:
A. The amount of payment exceeds credit limit – the max daily spending on Gloria Agostina for a single credit card is CHF 3000. 
B The billing address is inconsistent with your credit card address. 
C. Different users are found to have used the same credit card.
D. Your credit card may not support online transactions.
E. Your credit card may not support 3D security verification.

8. Why is my order status still "unpaid"?
Normally, the online payment such as credit cards or Paypal is instant. However, PayPal e-check may need 3-5 business days to be confirmed by Papal.
It will take about 1--4 business days to confirm the payment when you use any offline payment method such as bank transfer or western union. Before the payment received by Gloria Agostina, your order status is "Unpaid”. You may also submit the offline payment information through Email ASAP.

 

9. Why the amount you received is less than what I paid in Bank?
Besides transaction fee in the bank you make transfer, also, there may be some third party Bank charging you in the process. That’s because, if the bank in which you make payment has no business relationship with our bank, then payment may be sent to a third party bank first, and then send to our bank. If that happens, the third party will charge the transaction fee from the payment, so the payment time will be longer and the amount we receive will be less than the amount you pay.

Shipping

1. What carrier company can we choose when ordering?
We have DHL, Swiss Post, Fed Ex, UPS. You could choose the most appropriate shipping method for your order.

2. How are the shippings costs calculated?
The delivery cost depends on on the weight of the product, the worldwide shipping free barrier of 96 CHF, shipping method , delivery destination and other aspects. We suggest you to choose one that best meets your demands.

After your payment confirmed by Gloria Agostina, we have a processing time for your items. We are required to ship out the order by an unchangeable deadline (referred to as "shipment deadline”). But due to bad weather, items out of stock, invalid information provided by buyer, and other unexpected reasons, we have to prepare an order for 2---3 days. Usually the order will arrive at destination in 2-9 days working days.

Customer clearance

1. There are any extra charge from you?
We would not charge extra fee other than actual retail price and corresponding shipping fee. Meanwhile, we would not be responsible for any bank charge of your payment. The order price does not include Custom tax. We'll try our best to help our clients avoiding custom taxes, but because of  the complexity of different countries’ Custom tax policy, we are not sure if your package can pass custom without tax. VAT it’s included already in the retail prices for all sales in Switzerland. In foreign countries, for all shipments outside Switzerland will be no deduction of VAT.

In case of a product return: Note by hand in capital letter the following two words "Schweizer Rückware" on the package. This is important for custom matters. If not noted custom fees for returned products will be deducted from the refunded amount


2. If customs duties are incurred, who is responsible for?

Customs is a government agency responsible for regulating shipments entering a country or region. All shipments being sent to and from a country or region must clear customs first. It's always buyer's responsibilities to clear customs and pay the relevant customs duties that will be charged depends on each country’s custom policies.

Many countries do not charge import duties on private items, samples, and goods below a certain stated value. However, you may find that you have to pay taxes when goods you’ve ordered from us arrive in your country. Obviously you will want this to be as low as possible, but Gloria Agostina can't give you advice or information about tax rates and customs charges in your country.
