International Shipping Rates & Fees
Last Updated: 10/14/2015
When you select Fedex International Economy shipping at checkout...

The infamous customs brokerage fee is included in the shipping price. You will not pay it again when your package is delivered.

However, if any taxes are due to your government, you will pay an Advancement Fee to Fedex of 2.5% of the value of monies fronted (advanced) with a $10-$19 minimum fee (depending on country). This is a fee FedEx charges to pay your taxes on your behalf at the border and then come and recoup from you later. In some countries, you may also pay government taxes on the Advancement Fee itself.

When you select USPS International Air, you will pay similar fees to your postal service.

International customs clearance can be a complicated and a bureaucratic process. FedEx, UPS and USPS all try to streamline the process for you, but it can still be frustrating when fees are added or packages are held at the border. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to understand the shipping and clearance policies of whichever carrier you choose. Here's a good link for FedEx Import Fees. You may need to ask your local postal service for a similar chart of fees.
