Payment and order processing time

Payment methods

Most credit cards are accepted, E-transfer, PayPal payments, and on-site payments.

Order processing time

Item orders are processed in less than 7 days, and are mailed on Fridays. It is therefore preferable to place the order on Thursday at the latest to avoid waiting times. For example, if an order is placed on Saturday, everything will be mailed the following Friday.

Shipping Items

Standard shipping

  • For some specific items, standard shipping without tracking is possible. This means that the item can be sent in a regular envelope for a maximum height of 2cm. For standard shipping, receipt of the item cannot be guaranteed, however it is very rare for a problem to arise.

Parcel with tracking

  • Delivery is guaranteed for packages with tracking number.
  • A tracking number will be sent to you by email following the creation of the label or the shipment of the package.
  • Prior to dispatch, a shipping charge revision may occur if the order exceeds the carrier’s option criteria (see shipping charge adjustment).
  • Carrier delays are beyond our control. If this is the case, a complaint will be forwarded to them. MIC shrimps does not assume the inconvenience, except in the case of sending shrimps where the guarantee that they are alive on arrival applies (see shipping of shrimps).

International shipping
International shipping may result in an analysis of the best options based on carrier limitations.

The shipping costs are visible in the shopping cart.

Shipping Fee Adjustment
Slight variations in weight can drastically change shipping prices (eg some rates apply to 250g and under, 500g and under, etc.). Although everything has been carefully evaluated for the weight and volume of the items with regard to shipping, if such a situation occurs, MIC shrimps will contact you to agree on the best option.

Customs, duties and taxes
The costs of duties, customs and taxes, if any, are the responsibility of the consumer, unless the laws in force require that the whole be borne by the sender.
