What You Need to Know About Exporting Samples and Repaired Goods
Learn how to make these processes as inexpensive as possible and how to avoid delays in shipping, handling, customs clearance and return.
Exporting would be easier if all you had to do was take an order from a foreign customer, ship the goods and then forget about them. But the sales process doesn't always work that smoothly. Depending on what you're selling, potential customers may want to get a first-hand look at what they're buying before they place an order. That means sending them samples. Or after they place an order and you've shipped the goods, sometimes things break and need to be repaired. That means the customer needs to ship the goods back to you (suddenly you're an importer!), and then you need to send the repaired item back.
In either case, you may be on the hook for paying additional duties and taxes you weren't planning to pay. But there are ways to legally minimize or avoid these extra fees by following certain steps in the import-export process.
