2．About customs duties
Customs duties on various items have been removed due to the effectuation of the TPP and the EPA, etc. But depending on the items and the situation in your country, there’s a possibility that you’ll be charged customs duties.
It’s the judgment of customs officers in your country. And if you need to pay customs duties, you have to pay. It may take time to deliver the package due to the customs check.
※Usually package is shipped under a corporate name, but you can also choose to ship under a personal name (staff’s name). >>Check the shipping options
