International orders may be subject to customs and import duties depending on your country of origin. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; Varese has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Contact your local customs office for further information. Customs forms for all international packages require the listing of the value of your order’s contents by product type. Orders will be listed by Varese Sarabande Records using the aggregate purchase price in U.S. dollars of all of the items in a particular category, in accordance with the following example:
Value of CDs: $49.95
Value of DVD videos: $69.95
Q: How are shipping charges calculated on multi-disc compilations and box sets?
A: All 2 disc sets that fit into a standard size jewel case are considered 1 CD for shipping purchases. As there are large variances between the size of box sets, weight will be the determining factor on the shipping cost. For an exact shipping cost on a particular product in advance of going through the purchasing process, feel free to reach out to Orders@varesesarabande.com
Q: Will I be charged sales tax?
A: We only charge sales tax to customers who reside in California and Tennessee. Customers in California will be charged 8.75% sales tax. Customers in Tennessee will be charged 9.25 % sales tax.

Q: I’m being told the email address and/or password to my account is not recognized. What do I do?
A: Varese Sarabande launched a brand new eCommerce platform and payment processor in April 2015. As a result, we were unable to port over user account information such as credit card numbers, past purchase history, and passwords. If you haven't created an new account since April 2015, unfortunately you will need to create a new account. Only an email address and password is required. If you have created an account since April 2015, double-check you are correctly spelling your email address and/or password. Click the "forgot your password?" button to easily reset your password.
