There are three ways according to our previous experience and useful feedback from some of our customers, which effectively reduced the risk being detained by customs.  
  • Remove or replace the brand–logo name and other susceptible words in our commercial invoice and packing list in advance.
  • Make two payments like most of our customers. One part is equal to customs invoice value, the rest to make up of your order value. 
  • Separate the package when the volume or weight is up to 40kg to aviod inspection of customs. 
In most cases, this suggestion will be workable for our customers except some countrieswith strict customs policy. Some only need to provide customs invoice with payment provement,  others may have to seek help from local customs broker to assist the clearance. However, customers should learn and be familiar with the local customs policy in advance and adopt our customs clearance methods.
