Who pays the customs duties & taxes?
Shipments outside of the USA may incur customs fees depending on the destination country. The fee may vary depending on your order value, country limits, and other factors based on the product itself. Your end customer is responsible for these fees. Any fees are paid to appropriate customs agency by the end customer.
When setting your retail prices or manually editing them, keep in mind that customs agencies often calculate duties/fees based on the declared retail price.
If you collect VAT in your store, note that Printful doesn’t currently offer a way to display paid VAT or a VAT ID on shipping labels or packing slips.
What is VAT?
VAT stands for Value-Added-Tax. It’s placed on each stage of the supply chain (eg. production, sale) for goods and services. VAT applies to orders that ship to a customer in one of the EU member states (based on “ship to” address).
You can think of it like sales tax. For orders fulfilled in the US, we charge a sales tax if the order is going to a state where we’re located. We also charge VAT on orders that are fulfilled at our Europe location with a destination address in the European Union.
We calculate VAT with the following formula: (Printful product price – discounts + shipping price) * VAT rate %.
Key differences between VAT and sales tax:
- VAT is added to every step of the process for the manufacturer, distributor, and seller. Sales tax is only applied to the value of the product sold.
- VAT is calculated based on Printful’s price, sales tax is calculated based on your retail price.
- VAT applies to delivery charges.
