Customs is the authority in a country responsible for collecting tariffs and for controlling the flow of goods into and out of a country.
While the operations it performs don’t affect dropshipping that much, they have an impact on bulk orders.
In fact costs related to customs arise only for those products with a declared value that exceeds €200.
The exact amount of this tax is quantified based on the kind of product, export country, import country and product value.
With uDroppy it is possible to arrange DDP shipping - which includes tax calculation - and give you an all-in-one price for transportation that includes taxes. This way we take care of the whole process and all you will have to do is receive the goods.
Furthermore, if you already work with a transportation agency that is able to clear your cargo and transport it to its final destination, we can also arrange transportation in other formulas (FOB and EXW).
Remember, when buying in bulk with uDroppy, you can discuss these details with our Bulk Managers and agree on the best solution for your needs.
