Do I have to pay taxes?

Maybe. It depends on the specific country that is receiving the shipped goods. Tax is a very complex issue, and varies from one country to another. Some countries are easy to import goods into, and have few restrictions and no taxes. Other countries are incredibly restrictive and have high import taxes. Before you start to import large quantities of goods to your country, you will need to research what the law and import practice are in your country or the country you are trying to import to.

It is very clear that all shipments being sent to and from a country or region must clear customs first. That is usually the obligation of the customer.

If the items are detained by customs after the shipment left the seller’s country, the buyer is responsible for the clearance of the detained item.

It is the buyer’ responsibility for any custom duty fees and / or sales tax that may be charged upon delivery.
