Many international customers don’t want to pay customs duty taxes, so they’ll ask you to say that the item is a gift or less than it’s worth on the customs form. Most sellers recommend against this. Customs agents are constantly opening up items to check value and packing slips. A low value or gift designation on the customs form is a red flag to them. If they hold up or confiscate the package, the customer will probably become irate. You don’t have much to gain by reducing customs tax value.

Shipping internationally can be fairly slow  mostly in Canada, Middle East, Africa and Parts of Europe, for example. Make sure you manage your buyers’ expectations and familiarize yourself with the local regulations. For more info, go to: http://www.neighborhoodparcel.com
