Who pays for import tax?

Updated 5 months ago by Jessica

As the importer, you are fully responsible for covering any customs tax or duty incurred by your shipment.
The international shipping fee you pay does NOT include customs duties or import taxes.
Before ordering anything online from a different country, we recommend researching your country's import and customs laws. Doing so will prevent any surprises further down the road!
If you're confused about any law, you can always contact your country's nearest customs office for more information.
To customers in the European Union: Our business is based in Japan with a global client base and is not VAT registered. We can't pay or provide VAT invoices for taxes that are incurred by the importation of products bought through our service.
