I'm worried about import duties and taxes I may have to pay. Can you mark my package as a gift, or lower the declared value so I don't have to pay as much?
Unfortunately, we cannot ship with lower values as this is against the postal office regulation. This way both you and us are also protected against loss during transit, as your shipment will be insured to the full value.
Customers ordering from the United StatesJapan Post shipments to the United States are not taxed, so there won’t be any additional import duties and tax to be paid upon importation.
Customers ordering from EuropeTo avoid import duty and tax your best bet is to order small quantity and select EMS method for shipping, as in our experience European customs do not necessarily tax such small express shipments. This, naturally, is decided by the local customs and we cannot assist any further with it.
