- How long does shipping take?
Shipments within Germany take about 2-3 work days
EU shipments up to 7-14 work days
Anything outside the European Union might take longer than that.
- How much will shipping cost?
You can find our shipping rates here.
This varies depending on where you are and how much you order. Just place whatever you are interested in purchasing into your shopping cart and hit checkout (don't worry, if you don't want to finish checking out you won't need to). Enter your address and the shipping options will appear.
International customers may be subject to additional charges once the package arrives. ESL is not responsible for any customs,duty, or VAT charges you incur for importing our products.
- Do you ship outside the European Union?
Yes. We currently ship to Europe, the United States, Canada and most APAC & EU Overseas Territories.
- Why don't you ship to my country?
If you can't select your country as shipping destination, one of these reasons applies:
- Custom services won't process parcels
- Additional taxes are unreasonably high
- Packages get "lost" and stolen too often
Please accept our choice to disable your shipment destination.
- Will I have to pay custom fees on my order?
Your order may be charged customs fees (taxes, duties, processing fees, brokerage fees, etc.) upon delivery. The standard international shipping charges you pay to ESL only cover shipping cost, and do NOT include customs fees, import taxes, brokerage fees, or duties.
If payment of additional fees is refused at the time of delivery, the shipment will be returned to us. At that point, we can refund your purchase price, not including shipping costs.On rare occasions, your order may be delayed due to the customs process. If your order takes more than two weeks to arrive from the moment you receive your shipment notification, check with your local customs office to see if they are holding the package.
- Do you offer express shipping?
No, currently we're not able to offer express shipments.
- Where do you ship from?
Our EU warehouse is based in Cologne / Germany.
- Can you mark my order as a gift?
By law, we must mark all shipments as a Commercial Sample and declare the actual purchase price of the items. Doing otherwise is a violation of international regulations and can result in heavy fines for us. That in turn would lead to higher prices for you. That makes no one happy.
- I think my package is lost.
If a package is marked as delivered but you have not received it, please check your address on your confirmation email. If the address is correct you may want to contact your local post office with your tracking number to see if they have any information.

- How can I find out my tracking information?
You should have received a shipping confirmation email with a link to track your package.
- My tracking code did not update in a long time.
This could have happened due to the following reasons:
- Local delivery services do not always submit a tracking code when receiving DHL shipments. (such as Asia, Australia) Please get in touch with your local post service, as the parcel might be waiting for you.
- Deliveries may be slow as packages get checked by custom services. This can take up to three weeks - depending on how busy custom services are.

Please write us via contact formular and make sure to include your order number. We'll see whether we're able to stop it before our warehouse processes the parcel.
