PAYABLE DUTIES & TAXES FOR ITEMS SHIPPED TO THE PHILIPPINES
Some territories have a duty free allowance on imports, meaning that goods under a specific value are tax exempt. The Philippines is no exception: imports valued over 10,000 PHP require a duty and goods over 10,000 PHP are taxable. Some items are also subject to a proportional duty or additional tariff, including alcohol and tobacco. Please note that imports with a declaration of “no commercial value” cannot receive a duty free exemption. All commercial goods are required to have their declared price or value listed on the waybill/shipping documentation.
Import customs are payable upon delivery of the package to the Philippines, not when they are sent from your virtual mailing address or your virtual mailing addresses. As a result, duties & tax are not included in the cost of your ShipByMail shipment.
We guarantee the safety of your forward packages to ShipByMail. If your purchased goods arrive to ShipByMail virtual mail addresses in Canada in substandard condition, we will notify you and pause the shipment: this way, you won’t pay duties on products that have to be returned/exchanged with the original provider.
