Payment and invoices
What payment methods are accepted?
We accept payment by VISA, MASTERCARD and bank transfer. Bank transfer orders will be shipped upon receipt of payment.
Why do I have to indicate my VAT number?
Depending on the country to which you have your order delivered, taxes are payable.
- Intracommunity regime
With a valid intra-community VAT number on the VIES Europe website, I can order on Centuryshop without having to pay VAT. Except if the delivery is in Belgium.
Example: I am a French company and I have my goods delivered in Paris = 0% (VAT not to be advanced)
Exception: I am a company in France and I have a delivery in Belgium = application of the Belgian VAT (21%)
Note: In order for our site not to charge Belgian VAT, it is important to indicate your intra-community VAT number in the billing AND delivery address.
- National system
With a Belgian VAT number, I order on a Belgian website and I have my order delivered in Belgium. I pay the 21% VAT to Centurybox. I will then make arrangements to have the VAT refunded afterwards.
Please note that if you are in Belgium but have your goods delivered to another country, Belgian VAT will apply.
- Extra EU regime
USA, India, Switzerland, United Kingdom, etc. I do not need to indicate my VAT number.
VAT will not be advanced (except if delivery in Belgium = 21% VAT)
How do I receive my invoice?
When your order is confirmed, we automatically send an invoice to the email address you used to place your order.
Would you like more information about a product or its availability?
Do not hesitate to contact us via our live chat (bottom left of your screen), one of our staff will answer you as soon as possible.
What is a matt or glossy lamination?
In order to protect the paper, we use the laminating technique (also known as lamination) to stick a plastic film on the paper to protect it from moisture or dust.
Matte lamination, as its name suggests, is matte with a satin finish. Glossy lamination, also sometimes called glossy paper, gives a varnished effect to the packaging.
How to close a magnetic box correctly?
On our Youtube channel you will find many tutorials showing you how to assemble our different packaging solutions. Here is the link where you can find these tutorials:
What are the most environmentally friendly products?
The most environmentally friendly products are those made of uncoated "kraft" and, if possible, single-component. For example, a cotton bag is made of cotton only. A kraft Box or Safari paper bag is made of paper only. You will therefore benefit from a 100% recyclable and biodegradable product.
On the other hand, the Wonderbox, one of our magnetic box, even if it is made of cardboard and paper, still has magnets. This does not prevent it from being safely disposed of in cardboard waste, but it should be noted that it will not be biodegradable in the short term. We have developed Smartflat boxes that do not have a magnet for this very purpose.
What products are specific to food?
For the pack to be food grade, the paper must be treated for direct contact with food. Here is a list of our food products:
- Sweetbox, Evobox, homer boxes.
- Ecopack, babelutte, zip food bag, paper pouch.
Can I personalise the products on Centuryshop?
The products sold on Centuryshop are "generic" i.e. neutral. You can personalise your products on our website https://centuryprint.eu/en/. The minimum quantity is generally 50 units for boxes. For bags, quantities vary according to the model. The delivery time is 15 days.
