Hi @SC7! Gabby here from the Community Engagement team at Spocket.
From what I know, pre-paid taxes would be quite tricky as it's different per country. And as you mentioned, based on the info you found, custom taxes vary per country depending on the total amount your customer buys.

Prepaid custom tax is not possible. It's only your buyer should pay their local customs at the time of receiving.
