Why is a different total declared value applied for customs forms than what I entered?

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy's customs forms require a whole hundredth of a decimal to be applied per line item.

For example: 
If an international order has a quantity of 44 for one line item and you select "Override Customs Form" on the READY TO SHIP page to apply a total value of $100 for the shipment, our systems will apply $99.88.
100/44= $0.2727272727 per line item
99.98/44= $0.27 per line item
