    Hello,

    I'm a newer member and just got into my first trade with another member. I just have a couple of questions about shipping overseas with our eyewear. So I am shipping to there friend in florida and I am getting them sent once the friend confirms (I am a new member and understand that the trust isn't there) my question is I was just told about fees I am going to have to pay once I receive the item. What are these fees? Am I at fault since I didn't know about these fees?

    I'm thinking you may be hit with customs fees on the product you will be receiving?

    I believe that is what I was told. I have never done a trade overseas so I have no idea. How bad are the custom fees?

    That depends on your country ... Get in touch with your local border services

    What is your location? You say you are shipping your trade to FLA., so no fees for you.

    It all depends on what value the seller puts on the customs forms when they ship the item - I've done numerous trades on here and always mark the item as a nominal value and so far none of the recipients have had to pay customs duties

    I'm shipping to a friend of the guy I'm trading with and I'm receiving glasses from the Phillipines

    If you are nervous about this trade, why are you shipping to their friend? (that would make me even more nervous)

    So I wouldn't have to pay to ship to the Phillipines. Plus I got tracking and all that on it.
