The biggest advantage for clients is that they will not have to pay tax on their ordered shipments, because Wish will handle it for them, including the relevant administration,”
“When delivered via Czech Post, customers will be sure that they will not have to pay additional value added tax or customs duties on the consignment because the consignments will be released for free circulation within the EU in advance. Nothing changes for customers when shopping, the procedure for placing orders through the Wish portal remains the same.”
