What Is a Security Code?

A card security code (also called a card verification value, card identification number or card validation code) is a number you enter to confirm that the person placing the order is the cardholder. As a rule, the security code is printed on the credit or debit card itself.

Taxes & Customs Duties

Apart from the purchase price, NIWAKA will not charge you any additional fees in relation to the delivery of your jewelry. Customers in the US are also exempt from Japan’s consumption tax. However, depending on your state or local government laws and regulations, your purchase may be subject to a use tax, sales tax or other tax. In this case, as long as NIWAKA does not collect the tax from you and you are not eligible for a tax exemption, you as the customer are responsible for paying the tax in question. Please also note that NIWAKA may provide information on your purchase of NIWAKA jewelry to your state or local government if required to do so. For information on tax payment methods, please consult your state or local government’s official website or contact the respective organization directly.

All customs duties associated with your purchase are included in the purchase price.
