Shipping to the United States just got easier – de minimis value now at $800
As of March 10 2016, the United States (US) has increased their de minimis threshold from US$200 to US$800. What does this mean for businesses shipping to the US? It means that goods shipped by Canadians to US buyers will only be assessed for duties if their value exceeds US$800. This opens a new market for any Canadian vendor. With the actual Canadian dollar value plus this new regulation, selling/exporting to US based customers is more accessible – and easier!
