These Terms and Conditions are valid from 6.6.2018.
Prices include the Finnish VAT. We withhold the right to change prices and shipping costs.
As insects in some EU countries cannot be legally sold as food, we sell our food insects to those countries as non-food with non-food VAT. In case you order our insect products to an EU-country that does not allow selling insects as food, you should inform Bug Bazaar about that condition in the “Additional information” box of the order submission form. Based on that information, we will adjust the VAT accordingly and a higher non-food VAT will be charged from the customer. In case the customer does not accept the additional charge, the order will be canceled and the money the customer has already paid to us will be refunded to the customer.
The VAT on food in Finland is 14% and the VAT on non-food products is 24%.

A NOTE FOR HEAVY PURCHASES
Shipping costs for international orders are high and we want to offer the best possible service to our customers.

A NOTE FOR LETTER SIZED FLAT PURCHASES
