Custom authorities require that the cost of the item is stated on the customs form. If the order is a gift, the package is marked “Gift,” but the cost of the item is still stated on the customs form.

The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. International orders may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country.

When orders shipped internationally reach the destination country, they may be subject to customs clearance procedures which can cause delays.
