Who Pays For Customs Fees?

Estimated reading time: 1 min

When a package ships 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.

In general, 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.

Most sellers on Afrosmartshop can’t predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Afrosmartshop doesn’t expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes.

Afrosmartshop isn’t responsible for any additional charges that may apply after a purchase is completed on Afrosmartshop.

How do I pay customs fees?

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.
