Can I choose who is billed for duties on UPS international shipments?

Created:   |   Updated:

Yes. When creating an international UPS shipment on READY TO SHIP there is an option to select which party pays the customs duties/taxes: Sender, Recipient, or Third Party.

Recipient

This is the default selection. When Recipient is chosen the receiver of the shipment pays the customs duties/taxes. Optional fields for a UPS account number and the account number’s postal code will appear and if provided, that account will be billed instead of the recipient paying in cash.

Third Party

When Third Party is chosen, the UPS account number and postal code of the Third Party must be specified. They are not optional for third party payment.

NOTE: when modifying a batch of UPS international shipments, only two options are available for payment of customs duties/taxes: Sender and Recipient.
