Ecommerce business shipping to private USA customers. Do we/the customer need to pay USA duties?


We are an e-commerce business, selling UK made goods and many of our orders are shipped/exported to the USA.

Someone once told me that as long as the value of each order is below a certain value we/the customer does not need to pay USA duties on the goods.

Does anyone know if this is right? And where I can find information on this rule?


I understand the current level is USD800, below which no duties are payable.


hi Roger, thank you. Any idea what this rule is called or where i can find details of it?
