Customs & Taxes


No Hidden Charges to Any Order

Hoticle does not add any hidden fees or extra charges to any order. What you see is what you pay. However, duties and taxes are not included in the price of the goods you purchase or the overall shipping costs you pay. You are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate when goods are shipped to your country. Some or all of these goods may be subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders. Yet, many countries do not charge import duties on private items, samples, and goods below a certain stated value. Hoticle.com will accept no responsibility for customs costs incurred and CANNOT give you advice or information about tax rates and customs charges in your country. To avoid any confusion or trouble, you must find out about regulations in your own country before ordering from Hoticle.com. In most countries, the declared value and contents of the goods are more important than the actual origin of the goods (China) when assessing customs duties. Let us know if you have any special packing or labeling instructions when placing your order.


What Can We Do to Help You Avoid Paying Taxes?

Hoticle.com will do all we can to help our customers. Always inform us in the first place if you have special instructions for the waybill and invoice declaration on your orders. However, we can only declare a bit lower than the actual amount or value. If we offer a value on the Customs Declaration that is much lower than the actual price paid, it may result in seizure of the goods. As stated above, please leave a comment and we will get in touch with you shortly after.
