Shipping problem to Taiwan

ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
I just sent 8x6868 to a customer in Taiwan via FedEx. I got a notice that the package was being held at customs waiting for me to supply an "import license or permit". This has never been an issue before. This morning the shipment was released and I got an email form the customer. His English was a little broken but he said that the issue was that there was too many of the same kind of set. I guess that 5 is limit on same type of set. He said that they will give him 6 of the sets, charge him an extra fee and destroy the other 2 sets. Anybody experienced this before? Any sources one could look at and find out odd rules like this? I have done many international shipments and this is the first "hiccup" that I have had.

    I don't see why it is your problem. It is up to the importer to know the limits on what he can import into his own country. They are charging him the relevant taxes he has avoided by buying from overseas.
