Hey guys,

I've added a product to my new store and it's asking for an HS Code for customs. I'm selling items like t-shirts and hoodies, but I cannot seem to find the correct HS Code for this.. can anyone help?

TIA!

Hi @slimak ,

An HS Code is necessary when shipping cross-borders. I suggest you reach out to your Customs agency to process your request here and get them set. It will avoid headaches down the line.

Cheers!

This is an accepted solution.

Simple Answer:

No/Yes, depends

 

Advanced:

You need it if a certain $ Threshold is reached. If you import to the EU you need EORI. 

Usually, your freight company puts the "HS" on, but not really necessary for small amount delivery. 

 

Maybe you are shipping Pallets to Turkey, then Yes.

Where are you located?

Just make sure you fully state on the Invoice:

1x Pullover, 80% Cotton 20% Wool, that's all you need. 

I am guessing you don't export 1000s of Items once, because you would not ask here.

Located in the UK. No this is a merchandise store.. probably won't be more than 5-10 orders a day for now
