[INT] I already paid for shipping. Why does my post service ask me to pay extra money to receive the package?

International orders have added complexity over domestic shipments. They may be subject to additional shipping times and/or local customs & import duties charges once they reach your home country.

Due to the inherently complicated nature of international laws and taxes, which can vary greatly by individual country & local carrier, we cannot predict which orders will incur additional import fees.  

You are responsible for paying any local customs and duties on your order. We do not include them in your initial order, and we cannot tell you if you will have to pay these fees ahead of time.

How did we do?

[USA] The tracking number is showing a carrier delay or shipment is late?

[INT] Tracking says my package "experienced failed delivery attempt". What's next?
