PAYABLE DUTIES & TAXES FOR ITEMS SHIPPED TO CHINA
China does not have a duty free allowance for imports. Taxes are payable upon delivery of the package to China, not when they are sent from your virtual mailing address or your virtual mailing addresses. As a result, the value of all goods is taxable and is required for the overall 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 or if they are illegal in China, 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.
HOW LONG WILL MY SHIPMENT TAKE?
Express Shipping from the ShipByMail warehouse to Colombia will take 4-8 business days.
We work as fast as possible to combine your items into a single package and get your Canadian mailing delivered from your address in Canada without delay. Our clients from Colombia often obtain their shipments more quickly than the estimated transit times.
