The buyer is always responsible for paying tariffs: import duties & taxes.
Each country has their own distinct imported goods tariff system.
Currently, shipments to the USA are not charged a customs tariff. Our current USA
customs HTS Classification is "6309.00.00 - Worn clothing and other worn articles",
a duty free classification.
For European and other countries, we place a custom's classification

We gladly will cooperate with you in order to arrive at the lowest possible tariff rate.
