A very big welcome to Jellycat.com, to customers shopping from the UK, USA, Europe and throughout the rest of the world! At Jellycat we strive to meet and exceed your highest expectations both with every item we sell and the service we provide wherever in the world it is being delivered. We hope that the following information regarding all deliveries outside of the UK will help with making your shopping choices.
If you have any questions about our services for international customers, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
Our website will invite you to buy in British Pounds, Euros or US Dollars according to your location.
- For customers in the UK, our items are priced in British Pounds.
- For customers in USA and Canada, our items are priced in US Dollars.
- For customers in Europe and the rest of the world, our items are priced Euros
Prices quoted in Pounds and Euros are inclusive of any applicable VAT, GST or other sales tax. Prices quoted in Dollars are exclusive of any applicable sales tax which is added at checkout where applicable.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
If you are buying in Pounds or Euros our advertised prices include Value Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST) at the applicable rates which according to the delivery country, and from item to item.
Deliveries in the UK or within the European Union
If your order is for delivery within the UK or European Union, the prices charged in all currencies include VAT. We pay all applicable import taxes and VAT when orders are imported from the UK into the European Union.
- Our UK VAT registration number is GB927290412.
Deliveries outside the European Union
If your order is for delivery outside the European Union, you do not need to pay UK or EU VAT. Given that our advertised prices in Pounds and Euros include VAT, whenever VAT does not apply, we will reduce the Pounds and Euros prices charged to you accordingly, except for deliveries to USA, China, Norway and Australia, please see below. After you have entered a delivery address outside the EU your shopping bag will show a Pounds or Euros amount called “VAT deducted”, reducing the amount chargeable on your order. This amount represents the VAT that you, as an international customer, do not need to pay.
Customers in the Channel Islands
Customers in the Channel Islands also do not need to pay VAT, and if you are paying in Pounds or Euros, you will see the “VAT deducted” amount at checkout, in the same way as International Customers. For the same reason, we advertise lower delivery charges, in Pounds and Euros, for sales to the Channel Islands.
Clearing international deliveries through customs
For every package that we prepare for delivery outside the United Kingdom, we submit electronic data to the delivery company showing the value and type of goods contained in the order. This data is used to clear the parcel through customs in the destination country. Our delivery partners seek to minimise any delay or inconvenience caused by local customs clearance procedures in the country of destination, by using the latest integrated processes. However, customs authorities retain the right to inspect parcels passing through their jurisdictions and which may on occasion cause delay, outside our control.
International import taxes
Depending on the destination, the electronic customs data may be used to calculate local import taxes payable by the recipient. Any such local import taxes vary throughout the world and are outside of our control. We hope that by reducing the prices for international customers by the rate of VAT, the impact of any local import taxes will be offset or minimised.
Deliveries to the European Union, China, Norway and Australia
The prices advertised on our website, in all currencies, are inclusive of sales taxes and duties incurred selling and importing parcels to the European Union, China, Norway and Australia. Jellycat pays these taxes on your behalf and nothing further is payable by the customer.

State and local sales taxes are added to your order at checkout, if they apply, for deliveries to any State where we are registered as a remote seller collecting sales tax.
