Hi all, 

I'm new to shopify and currently building my site. Here is my situation : 

I have the products with me. I'm based in Quebec, Canada but will be launching in USA. Can't seem to find the right answer regarding the HS codes. I've read that for products under $800 USD, no custom duties are charges?

Therefore, my question is : If my products are all under $800, is it necessary for me to fill in the HS codes? 


Thank you,

Hi, @alexisfr !


Thanks for reaching out about this. If you are shipping your products internationally, you would need to enter the HS codes despite the price. These codes provide customs with information so that correct tariffs can be applied to the order. You can find the HS code for your product by searching using a keyword in the HS code field of the product details page. Learn more about HS codes from the World Customs Organization.
