Shipping Policy

Handicrafts in Nepal provides quality and premium shipping services for our customers. We also help you to choose the right shipping couriers based on the requirements and availability of time.

Hence, we offer shipping services from fast and hassle-free home delivery courier service to time-consuming land-sea shipping service.

Home Delivery

The home delivery courier is considered a convenient and faster service. It is recommended for the orders to be delivered at your doorstep in 4 to 6 business days after the order is dispatched.

We work with reliable shipping companies UPS, FedEx, DHL, and ARAMEX for fast and easy home delivery services. The shipping cost is comparatively expensive from Nepal as it is very far from the western countries and only a few airlines are operating their flights.

But the air courier companies offer cheaper rates for a shipment weight 25 kg and above. The cost ranges from US$ 7 to $14 Per Kg (depends on the weight and the destination). The courier companies will act as a customs agent to release the goods and deliver the packets at your home without extra charge for their own services.

But the destination custom duties that apply on the orders will be payable by customer at the delivery time.

Air Cargo

Shipping by air cargo is the most common and practical way of receiving your orders on time and cost-effective way. This service is recommended for the orders of 100 kg or more weight. The consignment can be available at the destination custom to release in 3 to 5 days. Air cargo delivers the orders only in the specified airports; destination custom handling and local transport need to be arranged by the customer or their handling agent.

Sea Cargo

Nepal is a landlocked country and does not have a direct seaport. We transport the goods to Calcutta port (India) by land and then will be loaded in a ship to the destination. This is the cheaper means of transporting the order from Nepal but takes a very long delivery duration (average 45-60 days).

If you are planning to place an order for next year then you can think of Land-Sea shipment. The shipping cost can be less than $2 per kilo for the orders of 1-ton plus). The order should be collected from the nearest seaport appointing handling agents or on your own.


For Sample Order

After placing a sample order (1 to 10 quantities), you need to pay the full amount including shipping cost with your Visa, MasterCard & UnionPay card. Payment through international card will be processed by a secure system.

For Wholesale Order

In contrast to bulk or wholesale orders (100 and more quantities), you will know the total cost in your email which is a Pro-forma invoice that includes the total cost for goods only. To start the production, first, you have to deposit 50% of the total amount in our bank account details.

Later, we will calculate the shipping cost providing the details like weight and tracking number. The remaining 50% amount must be sent after the completion of production and will include the shipping cost. So, in total, you have to make two payments for wholesale order.

On the basis of the total amount you paid via Bank Transfer, we will make required shipping documents such as AWB Bill, APC Certificate, Customs Invoice, and Packing List.

Note: Your order shall leave for shipment unless and until we receive the payment. Also, the customer should pay the internal bank transfer charges by themselves.
