Customs and Import Fees

Packages sent internationally may incur import duties, customs fees, and/or handling charges by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in that country.


Who pays for the customs fees?

Generally, the buyer is responsible for paying these additional fees.


How much are customs/import fees?

These charges can vary widely and are often based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the duty laws of the destination country.


Your seller will not be able to tell you in advance how much you may need to pay in additional fees. Neither the seller nor Depop are responsible for these fees.


How can I avoid being charged customs costs?

To be sure of avoiding these fees, shop locally and check that your seller is based in your own country before purchasing.
