International Tariffs in Arms Regulations (ITAR)/ Export License
Seller is responsible for determining if the product requires export license. Seller provides this information to us while registering the products on the website.
If the seller requires an export license before shipping the product, we will apply for the export license for the transaction as an authorized agent of the seller. There is an extra fees that will be charged to the buyer. We will collect the funds from the buyer including the charges for the export license. Seller is not supposed to ship the goods until we inform the seller. If for some reason, export license is denied, we will refund the money to the buyer minus our expenses.
If the seller is not sure if the export license is required, we can help the seller find that out for an extra fees. It is recommened that the seller determine the ITAR status prior to selling the products to international market. Please contact us for more details.
