Feel free to read how the order is made:

  1. Weigh the parcel when it is properly wrapped using a baking scale, bathroom scale or luggage scale. (For shipments to Svalbard – see which shipping method to use.)
  2. Check that the measurements do not exceed the maximum size, see further down.
  3. The next step is to fill in information about the sender, recipient and what the parcel contains (write this in English).
    1. Avoid return; write exactly what the content is in the customs document. Writing "Gift" does not hold.
