I've heard this from several merchants. Please accept my apology in advance if this is the wrong place to post this!
What happens if the receiver refuses to pay the duties and taxes?
I hope this helps!
Really good information! This would really help merchants shipping internationally.
In the case of FedEx, there are apps like the FedEx Rates, Labels and Tracking app which would allow you to select the duties payer as "Sender" or "Recipient".
