      Canadian Newbie Looking to Start a Store - Need Information on Import Duties & Tax Rates on Dropshipping

      Hello All,

      I am new to the dropshipping and selling worlds, I have decided to open my own online store, however I just got an email from a potential customer asking a question that, I hate to say, I didn't even think about.

      I am from Canada (PEI) and my wholesalers are all located in China. My customer target is all of Canada and the US.

      I have read the import duty and tax rate and it states that:

      "Lingerie Sets have an import duty rate of 18% and the HST rate of 14%."

      But it also states worth under $20.00 is free.

      I need to know, what price should I declare? How do I set it up to cover this?

      What I am wondering, from those of you who have been doing this for a while, is the border tariffs. Do I claim wholesale price or retail price? How do I go about covering this myself so I don't add any more added prices to my customers.

      I am currently only $12.00 for shipping charges which means I am covering most of the shipping because I found out absolutely nowhere typically shipping percentages, so I'm just wondering how do I go about covering this cost and not make my customers pay it? I don't want to make the prices higher than they already are.

      Thanks

      Have you already tried New Import Duty & Taxes Calculation | DutyCalculator ?

      You need to declare your cost price + shipping + insurance. If that value is below C$20, there are no import duties to pay.

      Hope this helps
