International Online Shopping Tips

When I started Dashin Fashion my main idea was to introduce kids fashion lovers to designers from around the world. Soon as international internet shopping grew I discovered “boutique beyond borders” and began connecting readers with online kids fashion boutiques from around the globe.

For many of us fashion lovers we spend hours shopping online finding the perfect outfit that we place on our wish list or check out cart.

But then we start questioning our international purchase. How long will shipping take? Is it worth the price of international shipping? What if my package gets lost on the way, is there tracking or insurance? What is the return policy? And of course, what is the duty fee?

Import Duty Information

I did a search online for duty information and found this great tool by Duty Calculator that allows you to calculate information! How cool is that?! I’m going to add it to my store.
