COVID-19: Impact on shipping
Our current shipping updates:
The Netherlands: Shipping and delivery times for most shipments appear to be unaffected currently.
Other countries: Although many packages are still arriving on a normal delivery timetable, there is potential that international packages may be delayed in transit.
Please note that as the COVID-19 situation develops, international delivery speed and availability is variable and subject to change quickly. As part of COVID-19 prevention measures, some countries have limited available shipping options or have halted inbound shipping altogether.
