Duties and taxes

If the country of departure and destination are not in the same economic zone (European Union for example), the receiver will be subject to duties and taxes (customs duties and VAT). If you ship within the same Economic Zone, then you won't have any taxes.

Duties and taxes are based on the nature of your good as well as the departure and arrival. If you want to calculate the potential tax the receiver will have to pay, you first need to determinate the HS Code of your item. Once it is done, you will have to go on the destination customs website to check directly the tax rates.
