Frequently Asked Questions
Does Intimategadgets.com match competitors pricing?
Although it is not always possible to match the prices offered
by our competitors, we would like the opportunity to win your business.
On the product pages, there is a "Price Match" link. Simply click on the link and enter the lower price you saw, and the source for the price then send it to us. We will try to match the price and update the price displayed on our site.
Prices considered for Price Match must be for IN STOCK products and available as a NEW item at a retail web based store, with full e-commerce functionality, a valid SSL certificate and credit card verification. Exact brands, packaging, items, model numbers and part numbers must match to qualify for Price Match requests. Most computer products are sold as Retail, OEM or Promotional products, and while they are often similar products, we cannot match prices on items with different packaging.
As verification of competitors' pricing is done manually, please allow 3-7 business days for the Price Match process.

registered airmail post shipping methods for free. And EMS with charge
according various cases.

How are Tax and Customs duties handled?
Because IG sends products from Hong Kong (a free port),
there is no sales tax or duties imposed by the Hong Kong government.
Customers do not have to pay any sales tax or export duties when they
purchase from IG.
Statistically, well less than 1% percentage of all IG orders have ever got opened by the Customs in customers' countries. If the package is checked by their country's customs office when the item arrives in their country, however, customers are responsible for import duties, tariffs, and taxes.
Although the chance of packages being Customs assessed is small, IG strongly encourages all customers to check with their local Customs office for any potential import taxes, duties, and tariffs. In addition, some products may require special licenses or permits to import (such as high powered lasers). IG is not responsible for products being confiscated by the Customs in customers' countries.
