      Hi Veronica,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      When importing to the US you will need to pay customs taxes and duty. You can find all taxes and tariffs on US imports in the US Harmonized Tariff Schedule. Taxes depend on the type of product. In the link provided these different types of products are explained and each item lists a description, classification number and a duty rate.

      You need to use these classification numbers given to describe the products you are importing, if you do not then you will be charged extra by US customs for having looked up the classification number.

      Shipping fees are the cost of actually transporting a product from one country to another. Taxes and duty need to be payed to have them enter the destination country.

      Hope this helps

      It depends on the products and the quantities. You should inquire with import and export companies from the US or China.

      Hi,

      This largely depends on the products you are importing, usually textiles and footwear have the highest duties etc however the tariffs will differ on each product.

      On the top of my head you will be paying VAT, customs duty, port charges, unloading costs and freight (to your factory or logistics company).

      Also I highly doubt "shipping fees included" means they are paying for "everything". Are you familiar with incoterms FOB or CIF?
