Course Description

Importing, exporting - and then selling internationally involves more than just “shipping and handling.” Tariffs and fees can dramatically increase the total door-to-door cost, hidden fees and unknown charges which can hurt your customers’ bottom line!

The world of e-commerce is borderless. Internet has made buying and selling products across borders easier than ever before. It’s estimated that the global B2C cross-border e-commerce market will reach $1 trillion by 2020. Yet, 50% of the merchants selling cross-border do not include taxes at checkout. The neglect on calculating and collecting custom and import tax can pose risks to their business, and create a bad end-consumer experience.

Join us for Customs Duty and Import Taxes for Dummies and learn how to properly calculate your actual costs for cross-border shipments, automate the process and integrate it all within your shopping cart for a seamless customer experience.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the risks of cross-border commerce, and the benefits of automating the management of customs duty and import taxes.
