If you have any questions on the parcel of customer clearance, please contact our customer service.

If the item value is large, and your countries customs is very strict, please tell us what you want to describe about the item name, and how we declared the value.

DHL upgraded policy about declared value: 
1. According to the regulation of DHL, the customs declared value should be not less than 50USD, otherwise DHL company will not delivery the package, or some documents will be provided to DHL, which will bring us much inconvenience, therefore, we have to declare the value up to 50USD. Please you get this note.

In order to resist the too-low declared value; the Customs regulate some customs clearance policy. If your package declared value is too low, you will be fined or your package will be returned to us. At the same time you as package receiver will be blacklisted in the Customs and DHL.
