For customers outside of the United States note that ALL courier customs clearance fees, taxes, duties, and customs fees are the responsibility of the purchaser.

If you have questions you can call FedEx or UPS prior to making a purchase and ask them to provide you with their customs clearance fees for the purchase amount of the products you intend to purchase. This is the only way to get an accurate estimation of their charges. And of course check with your local government for any customs duty charges.
