Amazon Global and Amazon Global Store offer customers customs duties, taxes and fees ("Import Fees") estimation during checkout and customs clearance on your behalf for certain eligible countries.
With your authorisation, these funds will be used by the carrier or another agent to pay the Import Fees on your behalf (or the recipient's behalf) to the appropriate authorities of the destination country.
The payment of Import Fees is the responsibility of the importer and is levied based on the laws of the country into which the products are being delivered.
If the actual Import Fees (paid by the carrier on behalf of the recipient to the customs and tax authorities of the destination country) are less than the deposit amount collected by us on your behalf, you'll automatically be refunded the difference to the payment method you used for the order. You'll receive a notification e-mail to confirm the amount of the refund. The refund process takes up to 60 days from the dispatch date.
For items sold by Amazon EU Sarl or Amazon Export Sales LLC, you won't be charged any additional fees if the actual Import Fees exceed the Import Fees Deposit amount we estimated. For items sold by other Marketplace Sellers, please check the applicable Seller's policies.
The Import Fees Deposit is an estimation of the taxes and duties that may apply and isn't an actual calculation of the taxes and duties. In addition, customs regulations and tax rates applicable to certain goods may change between the order date and the date of entry. Also, classification of goods in various countries and regions may be different.
