Question: "I am in [COUNTRY]. If the order is declared over USD [TAX THRESHOLD] then I will be painfully taxed. Can you help me by delcaring the goods at [VERY LOW VALUE]?"
(This question is most frequently asked by Brazilian customers as:
"Can You Declare Under $50 For Brazil Orders?" )
First, please see our tax FAQ here:
This document basically says we can't offer formal guidance on import taxes, but after you have found out information about taxes in your own country, we will do our best to help you with this and other import regulations.
If you have special instructions for the waybill and invoice declaration on your orders, you need to tell us these instructions every time you order, using the online checkout comments box. One such example is instructing us to declare the value below a certain value.
Can we always declare really low ? Like, under $50?
The answer is NO, NOT ALWAYS... because your order value may be much higher than this and declaring that low value would not be feasible.
Provided the value of your order / type/ quantity of the items is suitable for a declaration under $50, we *will* do our best to help you with this.
If you need advice about whether a particular declared value is deemed possible, before you pay, you can check out an order and open a help ticket with your generated order number. We will then look at the contents of that order and your country and assess what declared value is sensible.
