What is included in the Shipping Costs on the Shopping Cart Window?
When viewing the shopping cart, customers will have a choice of shipping methods used for BICSI products and services. The fees will adjust accordingly based on a customer's preferred shipping method from the available options. The fees displayed are only fees paid to the courier and does not include any additional customs duties and taxes.
Packages may be subject to the customs fees and import duties of the country to which orders are shipped. These charges are always the recipient's responsibility. Because customs regulations and tax rates applicable to certain goods may vary by country and region, BICSI does not pre-estimate or collect these fees upfront.
How Are Customs Duties and Taxes Determined?
When ordering from BICSI.org, customers are responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination.
The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. BICSI does not collect these fees as part of the shipping costs charged during checkout process. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient; BICSI has no control over these charges, nor can BICSI predict what they may be.
- Customs policies vary widely; you should contact your local customs office for more information.
- When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
- Customs offices in some countries or regions require the importer of record to provide a particular form of identification before releasing a shipment. You may be required to provide an identification number such as a Unique Identification Number, CPF, or Tax ID.
- Countries / regions that require an identification number include: Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Israel, Nicaragua, Peru, Qatar, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey.
