Our typical turnaround time is 3-5 business days from when the order is received and if all items are in stock. Orders that contain items that are pre-order or on backorder will be shipped when all items are stocked. If you would like to have your order split so the items that are instock are sent first please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note that additional delivery cost will be applied for splitting up orders).
Pre-Order / Backorder Items

When the agreed method is chosen, a seperate order will be made for the cost of shipping which you can log into the your account to pay. Once payment has been received we will ship out the order.

If you have qualified for free shipping it is important to note that free shipping will be using our standard shipping method via Chunghwa Post. (Tracked but no insurance). Meow Illustration is not responsible for any carrier delays or damages/loss of goods. If you would like to purchase insurance, you will have to choose either EMS or DHL. In this case, since we offer free standard shipping, you will only be paying the price difference between EMS/DHL and standard shipping. For example:
Price of standard shipping is: $100 AUD / $2069 TWD / $67 EURO
Price of EMS: $150 AUD / $3103 TWD / $101 EURO

Amount extra to be paid: $50 AUD / $1034 TWD / $34 EURO
If an order is returned to us due to personal circumstances (unclaimed delivery, address change without notice, etc), you will need to pay for additional shipping in order for us to resend the package out to you. There may also be a restocking fee if we have already unpacked the returned order.
