Does the Ship7 shipping rates include customs fees, tariffs, and/or duty taxes?

Not always.Depending on your country we can calculate the customs and duty charges in advance; so our shipping rates would be for door-to-door delivery. But even in this case, these charges would be estimates and there may be additional import or duty fees for merchandise shipments coming into your country. These fees vary by country and they are not covered by Ship7. Please contact your local customs office or our representative office in your country for more information on duty or import fees.
