Landed cost is the total cost paid for an international purchase from the time the order is placed, until it reaches the shopper’s doorstep. A landed cost calculation is comprised of the sum of the cart, duties, taxes, shipping, and additional fees from customs, brokers, or the carrier.
The Zonos Global Trade Management (GT) team does a monthly audit of our calculations that’s published with warts and all. We are dedicated to being transparent and accurate in our calculations.
For Landed Cost, Zonos currently has plugins for Shopify, BigCommerce, Magento, and Salesforce.
For Checkout, Zonos has plugins for BigCommerce, Magento, XCART, and Miva, but can additionally be added to most platforms using Zonos JS or API.
The difference between Landed Cost and Checkout plugins is that Landed Cost apps only provide landed cost, while Checkout provides landed cost, international payments, restrictions, translation, foreign exchange, denied party screening, and fraud protection.
Yes you can manage all your settings using Dashboard. Only those with a Zonos account have access to Dashboard.
Having trouble with calculations not working? Do you believe the landed cost quotes are too high or low? It's likely a configuration problem. Please contact Zonos directly. We are available during normal business hours (8am - 5pm MT).
Yes, Landed Cost will support exports from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and more. The Landed Cost API, Hello, and Quoter all support these varying regions. International Checkout, which also includes payment solutions, is not supported in every region. If you are using a plugin on Shopify, BigCommerce, or Magento, read more on each platform's documentation page to determine supported ship-from countries.
The de minimis is a threshold value that exempts imports from duty and/or tax or VAT. This means a consumer can spend up to that certain amount without being charged the duty or tax/VAT. The de minimis will differ based on the country. Click here to see de minimis values by country.
Not necessarily. It is very common for low-value shipments to be below the de minimis duty, so duty would not be applied to the import.
Harmonized (or HS) codes is part of the international harmonized system that is designed to streamline international trade. It uses a system of names and numbers to classify goods. Over 180 countries have currently adopted the harmonized system. Click to read more about harmonized codes.
No, a harmonized catalog is not required for a landed cost calculation. If a harmonized code is not provided, the default HS code will be used and a landed cost calculation will be provided.
No, Zonos is not a shipping service or reseller of shipping rates; however, Zonos closely partners with highly capable international shipping providers to produce a landed cost inclusive of their brokerage and other clearance fees.
