Export Licenses and Import Permits

Export of some products from the United States is regulated under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Other products can be exported freely. Orders that include regulated products sometimes require an export license.

Importing American firearms and related products into other countries is also regulated. Some countries require the buyer to obtain an import permit for almost any firearm part or accessory shipped from the USA.

Other countries require import permits only for certain major components. Each country is different. EasyExport's software knows the export and import requirements for every product its sellers sell. There's no guesswork, time or labor involved

When an international buyer makes a purchase from any EasyExport merchant, our software automatically flags the order if an export license or import permit is required.

We’ll apply for export licenses on behalf of American sellers, and inform buyers that they’ll need to upload a copy of their import permit before their order can be processed. And for individuals in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, we can even prepare the import permit application on your behalf. We do all the hard work, so you don’t have to.

EasyExport removes the complexity from license management for both American Sellers and International Buyers.

If an export license is needed when an order is placed, EasyExport applies for the export license on behalf of the seller. Should an import license be required, this will be flagged and the buyer will be notified.

Export License Renewal

Our platform keeps track of all licenses, and we’ll automatically apply for a renewal before your existing license expires. This means that there’s no waiting around for approval when a future order is made, allowing American Sellers to ship without delay, and speeding up the import/export process.

Through our license management program, American Sellers only need to wait for a license approval the first time they sell to a specific customer, allowing repeat orders to be shipped immediately.
