Complex U.S. export regulations have made it too hard for U.S. online sellers to sell to buyers like you outside the United States. EasyExport enables them to sell to you.

If you want to buy products from an EasyExport exporter, all you have to do is register with EasyExport. When your registration is approved, you can shop.

How and when do I pay duties on the products I buy from the U.S.?

Duties and other import charges are paid by you when goods are received in your country. They are not collected by the U.S. exporter when you pay for your purchase.

We regret that we are unable to assist purchasers as an agent, broker or consultant. Our sole business is to process export transactions for EasyExport exporters.
