And also the country destination from the shippers address. For items worldwide we will have to calculate your order and obtain a correct shipping quotation for your shipping destination. You may also be required by your country to pay Country import taxation which you will be responsible to pay. Each country has it's own taxation rules and to find these we suggest that you obtain upto date information.

Items can be fast tracked to your door within 24 hours if they are in stock but there may be an extra charge for this as Courier's do have a tendancy to over charge customers if you need stock in a hurry. Please email us and we will get a live quote for you. As a rule of thumb a dog bed delivered to your door will be in the range of £15.00 for a 3 day delivery.
Items that we are waiting for on back order should show as out of stock but will come back in, it is a case of waiting for them to be handmade by the manufacturers to do this, a unique but some times irritating process as they are not mass produced but this is the very nature of why Hugo & Otto was created to offer you the very best on the market.

Hugo & Otto Pop Up Stores/Events/Charitable Foundation Events indoors & Outdoors:
When operating from remote events either at an outdoor/indoor event it is often necessary to display products in a small space and with only limited stocks. Full stocks can be seen on-line at www.hugoandotto.com
All purchases made on stand would normally be ordered on the day from the website or from an order book and an approximate delivery date will be given to you when you purchase your goods. You will then receive your goods delivered to your door. Any or All goods seen on stand and paid for on the day and are taken away by the customer will be deemed as "sold as seen" they are in an immaculate condition prior to being displayed and one would hope would stay in this condition throughout the event. At events customers with dogs naturally look at products as they would in store, many events now are held in grassy fields and open to the elements. We at Hugo & Otto will do our utmost to protect and display our beautiful products in the best possible way, but it is often not as good as it would be in a store inside with air-conditioning. Therefore any items that are sold on stand on the day are sold unpackaged, unboxed and as seen. Any goods that are marked on site may at our discretion be marked down in price but once this is agreed with the consumer then no other discount will be offered once the goods have been accepted, paid for and taken away, these will be regarded as "sold as seen" we do so hope that you understand this condition of sale which is normal in any open air event.
At the moment Hugo & Otto do not charge any extra fees for customers using Paypal accounts to pay for their goods. Paypal levy the company over the customer and the fees are heavy. In many cases companies will charge a surcharge for each payment used for purchasing and this is normally set between 2.4% & 3.5% in the UK and upto 6% for International transactions.
At the moment Hugo & Otto have decided not charge the customer the Paypal fees unless the fee has to be reversed in the case of a cancelled order by the customer. Paypal charge the company a reversal or charge back fee of 3.46% for UK transactions and a further 5.2% for International reversal transactions plus a £14.00 levy in the case of charge backs. Hugo & Otto cannot take this charge and not sell the goods because of a cancelled order and the company has the right to deduct these Paypal fees in full to recover lost revenue. Charge backs mean that if a payment has been proven as fraudlient and Paypal have to reverse the fee charges. Hugo & Otto will have lost the goods in transit and also the funds. Paypal in these cases cover both the original card holder and also Hugo & Otto so long as proof of posting has been carefully taken by Hugo & Otto (the company) and contact has been made by Hugo & Otto to the customer. In the case where Paypay suspect that a fraudilent transaction has taken place they will alert Hugo & Otto (the company) and advise to contact the customer by telephone or email by the information given by the customer. If the customer does not respond, goods will not be sent out until contact is made. If the customer does not make contact after 54 days then the full amount of the transaction will be reversed by Hugo & Otto, Paypal will be notified and the goods will not be sent out.
In summary Paypal Fee Charges:
for each UK transaction Paypal will charge the company 3.4% + 20p for every transaction
for each UK reversal fee Paypal will charge the company 3.4%
for each UK charge back of funds to the card holder Paypal will charge the company 3.4% + £14.00
