1. To start with, you will need to partner with a carrier that can act as an importer of record. It will be up to you to pay the corresponding international shipping and associated import taxes to get your shipment through customs and to our warehouses.
2. Once you’ve chosen the suitable partner to work with, you will need to select the products variations you will be sending to the warehouses. Consider the following tips when doing your selection:
» Choose popular and frequently sold items, with high rotation.
» Consider applicable import duties and taxes. Choose those products that will end up having a competitive price.
