How are you getting stock through customs to get to FBA?


Hi guys,

A broad question, but how are people getting stock into Japan? UPS said I need an Importer or Record, and had to pay import taxes based on the retail cost minus Amazon fees, not the transaction cost.

How are people getting stock in? Do you have an IOR? What shipping companies are you using?

Thanks a lot in advance. I am currently having to pay to get a shipment I sent from the UK sent back to the UK as the customs was too onerous (the IOR request, the fact I’d lost all my margin on import tax)


If anyone has got products into Amazon FBA Japan recently I’d really appreciate some insight on how you’re doing it. Thanks!
