Hello Everyone. I'm new in SaleHoo. I need help. How do taxes work when with drop shipping from China to EU?

Will my customers pay for the taxes charged by my supplier?
How can I pay the taxes if the previous question is affirmative?

Sorry for myEnglish.

Hi Eduardo and welcome to the forum,

If there is any tax applicable on the sale of an item, then it will be charged to your customer. This is charge applied by customs and based on the customs declaration that will be supplied by your supplier. What you can do is inform customers that an item may or will be applicable for import duty so they are fully aware that they will have that also factor in that charge where they need to.

you can setup a tax table in your ebay seller section to add on tax ontop of your listing so when you make a sale. you dont have to pay tax out of your own pocket.
