If you do drop shipping, should you worry about the custom duties? Who has to pay the fee? You or the client?


Import Duties When Drop Shipping

Should You worry about import duties if you do drop shipping?

I have been drop shipping for quite some time now and it never happened that a client told me that they had to pay for an extra fee because of import duties.

I literally shipped hundreds of thousands of products and I never had a client e-mail me about an extra fee he or she had to pay! Keep in mind that I sell mainly products that are lower than $100…It could be different for people that ship higher price products.

The only thing that I know is that each country is different when it comes to this.  Each country has their own laws when it comes to the customs and the duties. For example, in France, and I don’t know the law over there, but it could be that if the value of the package is over $50, then the person receiving the package will have to pay an extra fee. Whereas maybe in Dubai it is over $100 or something. Each country has different laws when it comes to this.

But again, if you’re drop shipping from at express, chances are high that you’re selling stuff that are super cheap. I actually recommend you to start selling lower priced items and start by promoting them on Facebook, and by doing this, you won’t have to worry about custom duties at all.

But again, if you buy on Aliexpress the price you pay for the products will be super low and for most countries, they base their custom duties on that price (the price you paid on aliexpress) NOT THE PRICE YOU SELL TO THE CLIENT. 

Let me give you an example…Let’s say that in France, the law is that if the item’s price is over $50, the customer has to pay a fee…The $50 is not based on the price the customer is paying….It is rather based on the price YOU PAID on Aliexpress!! This is why I’m saying you really don’t have to worry about this. Most products on Aliexpress are super cheap anyways.
