Do you ship to my country?
Basically, we should be able to ship to virtually any address in the world unless prohibited by law. Shipping costs for orders depend upon the methods and options you choose. If you are not sure into which category of place your destination falls, kindly send us email before placing your order.

Do you offer local pickup in Hong Kong?
Sorry, we do not support local pick up in Hong Kong but we certainly ship orders to local customers. If your shipping address is at a commercial building or district, we can deliver your package next day. For residential address the delivery time would be approximately one week by Hongkong Post. The price is the same and can be checked in the Shopping Cart. Feel free to contact us and we can check your address before placing your order.

Do you ship to P.O. Box?
Yes, but only for packages shipped by Registered Airmail. FedEx shipments cannot be delivered to a P.O. Box so please provide a physical address when ordering. All packages sent by Cactus Store require recipient signature.

Is there a tracking number?
Each package shipped by Cactus Store has its unique tracking number and is provided to you on the delivery notification email. The same tracking number can also be retrieved on the Cactus Store website via Order History.

The method and extent of tracking available varies depending on shipping option:
1. Registered Airmail or E-express
Tracking site:
Extent of tracking available - only the date of package departure from shipping country
2. FedEx Economy or FedEx International Priority
Tracking site:

Extent of tracking available - real-time tracking of package location and viewing of package trail.

What should I do if my shipment never arrived?
Please note that the delivery time indicated in our website is only an estimate. Shipping time varies from place to place. We have no control over delivery but we will try our best to assist you to locate the package. Kindly allow at least a 2-week-buffer on top of the estimated time for products you purchased to reach you.
If your package does not arrive after 30 working days (weekends and public holidays excluded), please contact us as we can then file a post inquiry with Hongkong Post. They will then contact your local post office and investigate on the whereabouts of your package.
At the same time we will also process a second shipment to the same address and a new tracking number is available. If you received the second package after you have already got the first one, you may reject the package and ask the postman to return to the sender.

What should I do if my shipment is returned to Cactus Store?
This happens when the shipping address is incomplete or when nobody is at the door and the package is not picked up at the post office for a certain period. A notice card is usually left by the post office in your mailbox. When the package is returned to us we will contact you and requests reship fees. This amount is usually the same as your original order without extra charge.
For orders with a bigger parcel size, there will be a Return Parcel Charge which we have to pay to Hongkong Post in order to retrieve the return package. In such cases you will need to pay for the return parcel charge plus the reship fees before we process your order for reshipment. So please check with your post office periodically to see if your package has arrived when nobody could sign for the delivery.

How much is tax and customs duty?
We don’t know. Some countries may levy duties on certain products but others may not. We have no way to check the tax and customs duty in your countries. When you purchase goods online from country other than yours, you are considered as the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Therefore, import duties and taxes, as well as additional charges for customs clearance, must be borne by you. Customs policies vary widely from place to place. Please contact your local customs office for further information.
Shipping your order via fast shipment such as FedEx is more likely to incur customs duty / tax than registered airmail. Whether or not packages and parcels receive being taxed solely depends on the responsible customs authority.

**FedEx will be the one requesting these charges from you since FedEx includes customs clearance as part of their service, meaning they have paid the tax and administration fees on your behalf prior delivery. If you refused to pay these charges to FedEx, not only will the package be returned to us, which shipping cost will be borne by you as well, the taxes and administration fees will still have to be paid by you because FedEx had already paid the customs and tax on your behalf prior delivery. This amount unfortunately cannot be refunded.
