Import duties and taxes are charges calculated and collected by Customs departments around the world based on product (commodity) information in cross-border e-commerce shipments. The duties and taxes are then levied against the cost of a typical cross-border e-commerce shipment before being released to the end-user consumer. Each country has their own duty rate schedule.
