For FedEx international shipments, you have the ability to have Customs Duties paid by either the sender or receiver as long as the account is US-based. Internationally-based FedEx accounts cannot be charged as they do not have a valid 5-digit zip code.
When you create your shipment on the READY TO SHIP page, select FedEx as the carrier and an option will populate below that allows you to select who is billed for Custom Duties. You can select to bill to the sender or the receiver.
The Recipient’s Account Number is not required in order to effectively bill the Recipient for Custom Duties, but should be included if known.
NOTE: FedEx policies state that should the Recipient or Third Party fail to pay duties, the sender is responsible for payment.
Who pays for the duties or taxes that may be applicable at the destination country?
