Yakit supports DDP (Delivery Duties Paid) shipping. In this shipping mode, duties and taxes are quoted in your shopping cart, and collected by the Merchant (the Seller). The merchant then pays Yakit and its logistics partners shipping plus duties/taxes collected in the cart.

It is best for the merchant to add this disclosure on your Shipping page:

"The goods will be imported on behalf of the consignee/ebuyer. The consignee authorizes the (name of eTailer/supplier) to import the goods on his behalf. Further, the consignee/buyer agrees that (name of the eTailer/supplier) may delegate the obligation to import the goods on his behalf to a subcontractor (e.g. customs broker). The consignee will pay the taxes & duties in addition with the purchase price of the goods."

The duties/taxes quoted to the merchant are final - we take the risk on these and the merchant will not be asked to pay more for that shipment or Job - unless the data the merchant provides during shipping (like Value, item description, shipping weight and dimensions are different, in which case an "Additional charge" may be shown in the merchant's shipping dashboard from time to time. Additionally your customer (the buyer) is never burdened with paying anything extra for the shipment on delivery.

Duties and taxes change slightly on daily basis due to exchange rate fluctuations. They may also change periodically because of rate changes by the respective customs authorities. They may also change if the customs authorities reclassify an item - which is fully within their right to do so. Yakit does not mark up duties/taxes.
