What will the import tax cost me when shipping from China to Germany?

When you send a package from China to Germany, you will only have to pay import tax to German customs authorities if the total value of your package exceeds the maximum threshold fixed by the authorities or if the declared parcel value is wrong and your parcel is valued higher than stated. To avoid the former, senders should note that all European countries, Germany included, have a fixed maximum value at 22 euros.
It means that if the total value of your parcel exceeds 22 euros, which can happen, you will have to pay import tax.

To avoid the latter, if you wrongly declared the total value of your package, at least the receiver or both the receiver and sender will need to pay for the import tax due on the parcel.

For frequent senders, it is always recommended to check the minimum threshold fixed by Europe, in case of a threshold change. This is because neither the courier company nor Ship24 are responsible for a possible modification. It is the responsibility of the sender in order to avoid any added costs when shipping from China to Germany, or indeed any other European country.
