We’ve had a lot of questions this week since the big news that we’re now shipping internationally, to 200+ countries! We partner with Yakit, an international shipper that helps us ship at lower costs than we could if we sent out packages ourselves through carriers such as USPS. When you checkout you’ll notice Yakit includes shipping, duties and taxes all paid for ahead of time. Here are some frequently asked questions we receive:
What are duties and taxes?Duty:
A duty is a tax imposed by a government on goods from other countries to import products. Depending on the country, taxes include either Value Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST). VAT Tax: This tax is charged by the country to consumers when they buy any good or service. GST Tax: It’s different from VAT because it’s a flat-rate percentage of the total transaction, instead of a percentage of value added.
Duties and taxes on shipments are legal requirements that must be settled before your shipment can be delivered.Those rates depend on the country and the product shipped. Sound complicated? It is! That’s why we’ve chosen to take the potential headache of picking up a package from you!
Why pay for duties and taxes ahead of time?
When you purchase our Just Tea products, our shipping partner Yakit ensures the prices you pay are what it takes to get Just Tea from our door to yours. That’s a huge deal if you’ve ever had to pick up a package from your country’s customs, or better yet, a customs broker who charges additional fees and sometimes late fees just to receive your package. We don’t want you to worry about all that hassle, so we build everything into one price, letting us deal with what it takes to ship internationally.
