UK Delivery.

All standard domestic orders are either sent with DPD or Royal Mail these deliveries may require a signature

upon receipt of goods.


To avoid any potential delays in receiving your items, please ensure the billing address matches the address on

your card statements. For security our customers may also be subject to standard fraud prevention checks.



All products are shipped from the United Kingdom. As the United Kingdom has now left the European

Union it has meant an end to the free trade agreement as we know it. Meaning our customers that live within

the EU will have duties and taxes to pay on top of their purchase, these will not be part of your Ralph &

Mimi invoice and are to be paid by you upon entry of your destination country. 


Rest Of The World

It is important to note that you may have to pay customs duties and taxes on the items you purchase with us

and that these local fees are not included in your Ralph & Mimi invoice. Ralph & Mimi are unable to predict

these charges and we recommend contacting your local importing office. However, places like USA have a

threshold of $800 and Australia of $1000 before anything needs to be paid. We would advise splitting your

order if you're going to go over these thresholds.
