All the parcels, sent to Moldova from abroad, undergo customs control. The parcel is checked for the presence of the prohibited goods, also the customs declaration is examined.

- Use the following product names in the customs declaration to avoid thefts:
iPad - “pocket computer”

The parcels, costing less than 200 euro, are imported to Moldova duty free. This amount contains not only the product price, but the shipping price. The duty is imposed for every parcel, costing more than 200 euro. The сustoms can require one of three variants to confirm the order price:
- the invoice from shop (you can provide the order screenshot from our website)
- the documents from the bank (the confirmation of transaction)
- or the cheque from the terminal
The products are imposed with customs duty, depending on the delivery methods:
- when BayShop shipping is used - by us
- when USPS shipping is used - by Posta Moldovei
- when DHL shipping is used - by DHL
The customs service also checks the presence of the commercial consignment. These are the products, which are not designed for the personal needs of individuals. If your parcel contains more than 3 products with one name (regardless of the brand, model, colour, size and other characteristics), then the customs inspector defines characteristics of the commercial consignment independently, based on the goods use. If the products group is recognized not to be related to goods for personal use, they will be imposed with customs duty, and the customs registration will be carried out in the manner, prescribed for the import of commercial parties.
The postal service workers will inform you, if the parcel is imposed with customs duty. The recipient pays for the customs duty and VAT at the customs office. When the parcel isn’t imposed with customs duty (the total price of products doesn’t exceed 200 euro), you won’t deal with the customs service and won’t pay anything.
Also, you have to pay for the customs clearance. Its price is as follows:
- for individuals: VAT + customs duty
- for legal persons: VAT + customs duty + brokerage services
