Who Pays For Customs Fees?
When a package is delivered internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed (e.g. handling fees) by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in the destination country.
The buyer is responsible for paying the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. These charges can vary widely and are often based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.
As Customs policies vary from country to country, you should contact your local customs office for further information.
We cannot predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and therefore cannot be expected to calculate or collect these fees or taxes.
Scribendum is not responsible for any additional charges that may apply after a purchase is completed.
If your package is subject to customs fees, your package may be held at your local customs office.
Contact your local customs office to find out your next steps as you may need to pay additional charges.
