What is a Customs Form?

Created:   |   Updated:

When shipping internationally, to a US territory, or for some military (APO/FPO) shipments, a customs form is required. This form is used to declare the contents of your package in order to pass through the corresponding Customs Agencies that control the the flow of goods in and out of each country.

To simplify this process, ShippingEasy automatically assigns the correct customs form to eligible shipments with all of the required information included as it is pulled from your integrated store.
