Exporting to USA Splitting Orders below USD800

Question

I have been informed below $800 there is no duty for clothing. Is it possible for me to split an order I receive from a customer.
For example a customer purchases goods for $1500 – I split the order one value 790 the other 710 and send on seperate days.

Many thanks for the help

Hi

My agents have now got back to me with following info
There is no minimum amount for something to become dutiable or not.

Regardless of value, if the merchandise is subject to import duties/taxes, they will be levied.

For values under $ 2500/shipment an informal entry can be filed, which means no bond is necessary to clear and MPF is assessed lower.

I believe the $ 800 is the info client has what the max amount is a US Resident is allowed to bring back duty exempt “free” from any duties being assessed on merchandise they bring back when returning from overseas trips.

I hope this is of some help to you
If you need any more info please let me know
