How long does it take to get my audiobooks?
In Europe it takes approximately 5 working days if the audio book is immediately available. It is always indicated at the product's detail page. Please allow 14 to 21 days for delivery to non-European countries. Normally we send our audiobooks by airmail.
Do I have to pay customs duties?
You may be subject to customs or import duties. They are due if the delivery has arrived in your country (only outside EU, e.g. Suisse, U.S., Japon). These duties cannot covered by hoerjuwel. We have no influence on this and cannot predict its amount. Please inform yourself at the local customs office.
How do I get my customer number and a password?
You will create your account and choose your password. At your next visit, you can log-in and don't need to fill in your shipping address etc. again. You may change your password at any time. Make sure you write your password down somewhere so that you remember it the next time you place an order.

If you are abroad (outside Germany) you have to pay the shipping cost for return. Of course the paid amount - reduced by occuring international bank transfer costs if applicable - will be refunded.
