Custom Document 📝

If you're dealing with an international shipment, you'll have to complete some additional information for customs.

When you generate an international shipment that requires Custom Document, this document is automatically created by ShippyPro.

Here's the step that you need to compile when creating a single shipment. Read this article to find out more about how to ship orders from Marketplaces

Firstly, choose the product category. Decide what to do if the carrier cannot reach the customer.

The Item Description is already filled in. Please note that the HS Code is not a mandatory field. However, some carriers may require it for international shipments.

Learn everything you have to know about the CN22 and CN23 customs declaration.

💡Note: In the next step it will be asked to include both Goods Description and Items Values, these fields are mandatory.

Incoterms 📦

For some shipments it can be useful to specify Incoterms.

Incoterms are the international terms for import and export. Those terms define the skills and the responsibilities of each subject involved into international transactions. 

The Incoterms field is never requested as mandatory, it will be as default DAP (former DDU) if not edited.
