Print the Invoice 📄
As for standard international shipments, you need to print your Invoices in English, for UPS, DHL Express and Fedex instead you'll be able to upload them via ETD/Paperless.
Include a detailed items description 📦
All shipments will require a detailed items description included inside the Invoice (description as "spare parts", "samples", "gift" won't be accepted).
Items value 💷
In case items value is higher than 135£ you need to set DDP as Incoterm, DDP (Delivered Duty Paid), for which the vendor pays all custom duties charged at export and import in the country of destination.
EORI Number #️⃣
The CN22 is mandatory: Description, Weight, Quantity and Unit Value fields will be automatically filled only for orders coming from a Marketplace.
📌 We can import automatically Origin Country (manufacture country) from Ebay and Shopify with an Annual Plan subscription .
For manual shipments or orders imported via Excel, you will have to manually add all the details:

HS Code 📌
The HS Code is the Harmonized Code referring to the specific product that you're shipping, you can check here what's your HS Code.
We can only import the HS Code automatically from Shopify with a Professional Annual Plan subscription.
Otherwise, you'd need to either:
Add it manually for every shipment;
Assign your HS Codes to each SKU from Admin > My Addresses and Parcels > Customs info through an Excel file by specifying Item Name, SKU, HS Code and Country of Origin, you can find our template for the upload here.
💡 The field Country of Origin can be left empty. If empty, we'll fill it with Shopify data or we'll retrieve the Country from Profile > Sender info.
📌 Please remember to cancel the Title line from the file before importing it:
Then the correct HS Code will automatically be assigned to your shipments.
And that's it! By following the steps above you'll be ready to start shipping to UK without further ado 🚀.
