Answer

Hi Romina
You can calculate the duties and taxes the importer will pay by using
www.cbp.gov is the U.S.Custom website and you can use www.dutycalculator.com
you will need the tariff code for the item or product you are exporting.
there is a good mechanism under the EU website which you can use for other countries as well as USA

You will need to take into account the freight cost as duty is calculated on the invoice price plus freight. So every shipment may be different
