Delivered Duty Paid is a pricing option which Buyandship will pay for the duty and tax as long as there is no false declaration. The price for DDP is PHP 620 / lb. However, we will charge you back if you have misdeclared the parcel value according to Philippines Customs assessment. DDP is also a more convenient and less hassle option during these virus times.
This option will allow you to have more convenience and less hassle as Buyandship arranges for the duty and tax rather than the other option, Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU), wherein you are billed by the local courier for duty and tax.
DDP is only applicable for a shipment with a declared value of PHP 95,000 or below. If it is above PHP 95,000, you will not be able to choose DDP when checking out and instead can only choose DDU. Please note that the foreign currency may vary which could affect the availability of choosing the DDP option.
In addition, the volumetric weight of the parcel cannot exceed 45 pounds. Kindly note that the calculation for volumetric weight of your parcel is
[Length (CM) x Width (CM) x Height (CM)] ÷ 6,000 x 2.2046
For other services and processes, such as the prohibited items, insurance, declaration process, any shipment damaged or lost, there is no difference between choosing DDP and DDU as your pricing option.
Kindly remember that you have to declare your shipments properly based on your invoice and receipt. Please ensure you declare according to the warehouse currency you shipped to and that the unit price per item is as is in your invoice and receipt.
