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 Easyship, an international shipper that helps us ship at lower costs than we could if we sent out packages ourselves through carriers such as USPS, Fedex or DHL. When you checkout you’ll notice Easyship includes shipping, but duties and taxes all paid for at the time of arrival. Here are some frequently asked questions we receive:
What are duties and taxes?
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).
This tax is charged by the country to consumers when they buy any good or service.
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! But we estimate the taxes at checkout for you – so you can see what you’ll pay when your package arrives.
