In many countries, imported items are subject to import tax (duty / salestax) that you, or the recipient, has to pay on delivery.

This may not apply toyou if you are delivering to a country with few import restrictions. (Pleasenote, we do not add any taxes to your order - it depends only on your owncountry's Customs.)

These taxes are usually calculated by the value of the goods. As a specialservice to you, we'd like to help you minimize the tax, if you agree.



In some countries, if the declared value of the goods is lower, then the taxis lower.

The method to do this is adjust the declared value on the shipping invoice withyour order to a lower amount equivalent to "nominal China wholesale price".

Since the value of the goods is, in the final instance, assessed by yourcountry's customs, you must indicate your agreement to any adjustment indeclared value and note our buyer terms and conditions.




  • Check the comments onyour order for the declared value.
  • Declared values are always in US Dollar for consistency / internationalimport standards.
  • The declared value of the individual products on your order will beseparately itemized to match this order total.
  • Due to our experience shipping products to your country, this is theminimum value that is reasonable / safe to declare. Please note we cannotdeclare lower than this.
  • By default, shipping invoices include the shipping fee (UPS / Fedex /DHL etc) as a separate item. Our normal course of action is to declare 50%value on shipping, because in certain countries this affects your importtax. If you want shipping value declared fully or omitted please reply withyour instructions.
  • If you need a copy of the shipping invoice, exactly the same as the onesent with your package(s), to support your import process, please ask us andwe will email it to you.

In the shipping invoice that accompanies your package(s) the goods must beidentified. We will identify the goods with generic product category names. Ifyou need more details, please ask. Products cannot be falsely declared as adifferent sort of product.

"Declare as gift" typically has no credibility/effect on customs taxassessment, and we will not declare products as gifts or personal effects.
