These customs duties and taxes are the responsibility of the User and are their sole responsibility. CHARLET is not obligated to verify and inform the User about applicable customs duties and taxes. Users residing outside the territory of the European Union are advised to inquire about import amounts in advance.
Chapter 4: Deliveries
4.1 Delivery Methods
Once the order is confirmed by CHARLET, the package is handed over to the carrier. An email is sent to the User as soon as the carrier takes charge of the package, providing the tracking number.
The transfer of risks occurs upon delivery to the address indicated by the User. The recipient must check the condition of the products upon their arrival and, if necessary, take recourse against the carrier.
In the event of missing, lost, or damaged items, the recipient User must make any necessary claims directly to the responsible carrier upon delivery of the products:
- Immediately and accurately describe the nature and extent of the damage on the delivery receipt.
- Confirm the protest to the carrier, no later than three days following the receipt of the transported items, through a motivated letter sent by registered mail.
Both of these conditions are inseparable and mandatory for the carrier's liability to be invoked.
4.2 Delivery Time
Any order placed before 12:00 PM and paid by credit card or PayPal will be processed and shipped on the same day (subject to product availability in stock). Any order received after 12:00 PM on Friday or the day before a public holiday in Monaco will be processed on the next business day.
Customers have the option to choose between two types of delivery:
- Local carrier for Europe only (more economical but longer transit time for your package), or
- Chronopost (express delivery but slightly higher cost).
The local carrier delivers our packages to all European countries by selecting the best rates and the most efficient postal operators. In order to offer competitive rates (or provide free delivery depending on your delivery location), the transit time for your package will be longer than if you had chosen the Chronopost delivery option.
For delivery within Europe, the order will be delivered within a maximum of 30 days from the date of the email confirming handover to the carrier. Beyond this period, the carrier assumes responsibility.
Delivery times outside the European Union territory depend, in particular, on the processing times of local customs handling the flow of goods.
At the time of ordering, customers are encouraged to carefully check the delivery address and the billing address if different. It is strongly recommended to provide a valid phone number so that the carrier can easily contact the recipient if needed.
Neither CHARLET company nor the carrier can be held responsible for a delivery delay if the phone number or address is incorrectly provided.
4.3 Delivery Rates:
"Delivery is free for orders of €100 or more (including taxes) and for the countries indicated in the table below.

Chapter 5: Payments
The customer can proceed with the payment of their order by credit card, PayPal, check, or bank transfer.
- Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Amex)
- Bank Transfer
- Check (only for France, Monaco and Belgium). The payment by check should be sent as soon as possible. The order will only be processed after the check is cashed, made payable to: CHARLET - Mario BERTULLI.
- • PAYPAL: the security of all international payments.
No order will be processed until payment is received and validated by CHARLET SAM's bank. It is specified that payment by credit card (secure - SSL) guarantees a much faster delivery and avoids any misunderstandings.
CHARLET is highly vigilant about the security of payments made online, especially by credit card.
The customer who chooses payment by credit card agrees to provide their VISA, MasterCard, or American Express card details (card number, expiration date, and cardholder's name, excluding the CVV code). Once the customer confirms the information, their bank will send them a code to enter on the payment validation page of the website via their mobile phone.
Customers who do not have the enhanced authentication services offered by their bank will not be able to make the payment online, and the transaction will be declined.
This security system has been mandated for payment service providers and banks within the European Union by the Directive (EU) 2015/2366 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on payment services in the internal market, known as "PSD2," to protect consumers and merchants against fraud.
Customers who encounter difficulties with online payment by credit card can contact CHARLET's sales department at (+377).92.05.59.05 to make the payment over the phone using a POS terminal.
Chapter 6: Right of Withdrawal - Return Policy

It is specified that the aforementioned Law No. 1.383 defines the consumer as "any natural person who, in contracts covered by this law, acts for purposes that are not within the scope of their professional activity."
Any customer who qualifies as a consumer has the right of withdrawal within a period of thirty (30) days following the receipt of the ordered products, without having to justify a reason.
In this case, the sale is simply canceled, and CHARLET will proceed with the refund of the price and shipping costs upon receipt of the products, provided that:
The products are returned in their original packaging and in strictly new condition.
Furthermore, the customer has the right to return the ordered products within 30 days following the receipt for the following reasons:
- The shoes do not meet their expectations.
- The shoes have a manufacturing defect.
- The chosen size is incorrect.
In this case, the customer can request either:
- an exchange (size, color, or model) subject to available stock,
- a credit voucher added to their personal account on the website for a future order, or
- a refund (processed within 15 days after the receipt and verification of the shoes' satisfactory condition).
For any returns, the customer must register their return request in their customer account. Following this, a printable return label will be provided in their account. The customer should include this printable return label in the package when returning the products.
To ensure prompt processing of the request, it is important to accurately fill out the return form and include it with the product. All returns should be sent to the following address:
