Integrating an Automated Global Pricing and ERP System Customs and Duties for International ecommerce Customs is usually the agency that levies duties or taxes and oversees the flow of goods in and out of a country. Importantly, customs and duties charges are applied once a product reaches its destination country. Duties are taxes levied by governments on the value of item as well as its freight and insurance costs. This is not to be confused with taxes, which are levied by individual states or jurisdictions. Customs, duties and taxes should be showed to the customer in their native or preferred language during their checkout process on your international ecommerce marketplace. This will prevent price surprise, confusion and unhappy customers. The same goes for an estimated cost of international ecommerce shipping. An integrated international ecommerce system or platform can automatically calculate these costs at the time of checkout both to inform customers as well as streamline your international pricing strategy.
