Will I have to pay customs taxes in my own country?

Please check with customs in your country to find out if there will be any duties levied on the products you purchase. KoreanBro is not responsible for any taxes that may be charged by your countries Customs.
How Do I Track My Order?
To track orders sent via EMS follow this link. Tracking numbers have the format EMXXXXXXXXXKR.
Airmail can be tracked while it’s in Korea from the same link as EMS (international parcels option) and tracking codes have the format CRXXXXXXXXXKR. As soon as the package leaves Korea it can be tracked on your home country’s post office website. The updates are not as frequent or as quick as EMS. Also, some countries don’t even bother to update the tracking information. USPS does update.
All regular mail packages we send are registered however they cannot be tracked outside of Korea.
What Happens if my Items are Lost in the Mail?
KoreanBro cannot be responsible for items lost in the mail. To date, only 2~3 parcels have been lost so the chances of this happening are far less than 0.5%. If you have a high-value item or are worried about the item being lost, KoreanBro recommends choosing the EMS or FEDEX option so the package can be tracked with a tracking number. Orders over 150,000KRW must be sent by airmail or EMS. We strongly recommend adding insurance to items over $500.
*When you get an insurance, we have to declare full price of the parcel for coverage.
