Shipping and Customs

The staff at YalaMart will handle all shipping and customs charges for you. When we give you a quote for your items, shipping, customs and VAT are already factored into the price. Generally speaking, the heavier an item is the more it will cost to ship, and this will be recorded in the quoted price. Additionally, how quickly you want the item delivered will change the price, generally if you don't need your items shipped express we can reduce the price significantly.



Shipping will be done in two stages. You will be able to select if you would like the item shipped to you as cheaply as possible or as fast as possible. This applied both to domestic shipping in the US and the international shipping to Nepal.



Customs rates vary widely in Nepal according to what type of consumer good you order. Some items are, unfortunately, prohibited. Although we will calculate and add in the customs costs for you, to give you an idea of what these costs are, feel free to browse the document below if you would like to know what the customs charge will be for a specific item or browse popular categories to see what other users are ordering. There are also items that cannot be shipped into Nepal.


Restricted  Items

Unfortunately, there are some items that we can not bring into Nepal due to the item being banned for import, or a lack of ability to transport the item or a requirement of a special approval to import such product . Items that we can not purchase and ship for you include:
