DHL – changes in USA shipping

Due to the SARS-SoV2 most international flights are cancelled.
Up to now this ment long waiting times for a plane to carry parcels along and a small surcharge to all parcels headed for the US.


Starting 15th of September that surcharge will be lifted (and we will reduce our prices accordingly) but a lot of parcels will travel by sea. So the waiting time for a flight will be replaced by the travel time of a cargo ship slow steaming across the Atlantic.
DHL says this means 25-30 days of travel time for parcels.

Premium parcels are still flown (and still have the surcharge in addition to the already high price tag) but due to the weight of our products, we do not offer that service.

Covid 19 shipping update

General

DHL is still warning about delays due to large volumes of parcels being moved.
They have hired additional staff and shifted some work to other departments
Current limitations (such as countries we can’t ship to) can always be seen here.

Restocking toys from the US of A

The large toy delivery sent by Exotic Erotics is still on it’s way.
We expect it to arrive safely but with a significant delay.
The last one during February was delayed by an entire month. We hope that it will be less extreme this time.

Restocking toys from within Europe

Apart from some manufacturers experiencing delays in getting their Silicone,
there should be no noticable delays for us in restocking toys.

Belgium

DHL has lifted the size limitation when shipping to Belgium that we mentioned the last time.

There will still be delays and there are still some limitationt that don’t affect us.

France

There where some limitations that don’t affect us. (Parcels >20Kg that require 2 people to carry).
In addition DHL is reporting delays. These of cause do affect our orders.

Slightly cheaper US shipping starting 11th of May

Shipping to USA

Looks like shipping to the USA will get LESS expensive starting the 11th of May.
The current +17,19€ special fee DHL asks during the CORVID-19 crisis with it’s reduced flights will be reduced to +2,62€/Kg.

Shipping to Belgium

However there is also bad news.
Belgian postal services are at their limit and only very small parcels (40 x 40 x 40 cm) are still accepted with Belgium as a destination.
Our small and medium sized parcels do match this creteria. But very large orders may have to be split into multiple parcels and extremely long toys may not work out at all..

Bovivet cheaper

We are lowering the price for the (already cheap) Bovivet lubricant from 9.68€/l to 8€/l permanently.
The strange old price has not been changed since the German sales tax was increased from 16% to 19%. That was a LONG time ago.

Note that this is a lubricant and thus we sell it for lube-play on latex, where lots of lube is needed. 😉

We’re back

blog logo

We have returned from the holidays and are already preparing all the shipments that have accumulated during the yearly vacation.
(And also a metric ton of yearly paperwork.)

No new DHL prices

DHL in Germany currently is in the news because DHL will increase prices for end customers starting on the 1st of January.

However, for business customers that already happend at the 1st of September this year.
So we will not increase our shipping prices with the new year.

Holidays 2019

Just as every year, we will be on vacation and there will be no shipping during the holidays.
The shop is closed from 2019-12-20 until 2020-01-03.
This blog posting will be updated as new information comes in.

Last orders


The last shipping will happen on 2019-12-20 for orders played and fully payed on 2019-12-19 20:00.
If you select DHL Packstation, please make sure to include your DHL Postnummer in the address.
if you select Hermes Shop2Shop, please tell us about what Hermes shop to select via email. (Hermes wants a delivery address AND the shop.)

Last custom orders

FurryStyle will no longer accept custom orders to be finished this year effective today.

Deliveries before the holidays

We expect some last deliveries by Sidewinder Creations, FurryStyle, GLC and by Bad Wolf (including Wolf Cum Lube) early next week. We will announce them at once, so you can still place an order to be fulfilled before we have to close down and have it arrive before christmas.

Update: Bad Wolf had to cancel it’s delivery. It will arrive after the holidays. Sidewinder, FurryStyle and GLC just arrived.

DHL situation during Christmas

At the moment every DHL post office is crowded. If you can, please select a DHL Packstation instead of having anything delivered to a selected post office. Because if you do, expect very long waiting queues.

Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk

We have shut down our presence on Amazon on the 19th of December.
This step is needed because orders made there would have to be shipped in less then 7 days and that is not possible while we are enjoying the holidays like everyone else.
Amazon will be reactivated before or very shortly after we return.

New Toy – Tainted Plu’s Butt

We actually have a new toy in stock.

But what’s the point in announcing it when you have already purchased our entire stock before we even got around to writing this blog posting.
How very inconsiderate of you lot.
😉

So here you have a few photos and plenty of time to read the detail in the linked shop page until we get another delivery.
…greedy bastards. 😉

New delivery by Exotic Erotics on it’s way

A new delivery of Dildos by Exotic Erotics (English / German) is on it’s way.

We expect it to arrive in about 10 business days (including customs). Then we just have to count, label and sort it for the new stock to be available in our shop (English Shop / German Shop). When that happend, we’ll report here again, so you can place your orders on items that are curretly still out of stock.   If you want to track this delivery, you can do so here and here.

Custom Dildos:
For just a few days after this delivery arrived and before we place our next order right away, it will be possible to order custom variation again. Just contact us via email, stating all the details like colour and firmnes. Then we’ll provide you with a custom product that can be ordered exactly 1 time via the regular ordering process. The only  difference is that it obviously takes longer to ship and we require it to be fully payed right away. Also for custom made products there is no 14 day return period.

(Yes, postings in the category „Disturbing Dildo Deliveries“ are basically copy&pasted.
There is just nothing original to write about such a thing but many people are waiting
for toys of a specific manufacturer to come in, so it’s important we post these.)
