After the sale

Next-step tips

Use returns automation

Save time by automating parts of the returns process or expediting refunds and exchanges.

Learn the restrictions

Part of selling internationally is knowing the rules of what can‒and can't‒ship where.

Learn the threshold

The de minimis threshold is the price below which an item is exempt from import duties and taxes, and each country's is different!

Use AfterShip tracking

For the best international tracking, the experts use AfterShip.

Seller protection
