Whether you should offer your customers DDP or DDU depends on multiple factors, including the kind of goods you sell, where you sell the goods from and to, and the weight and cost of the goods, to name just a few. That said, we generally recommend using DDP since your customers are guaranteed to pay only the duty tariffs and customs fees shown upfront during the purchase process. FlavorCloud eliminates a lot of duties and fees associated with duties and taxes and therefore ends up saving customers a significant amount of money. It also ensures that your customers are not upset to see surprise duty bill when they receive the shipment. Paying duty tariffs and customs fees upfront with DDP also helps reduce issues during the customs clearing process and goes through an expedited process thus avoiding potential delays with delivering your shipment to your customer.
