About the Commercial Invoice
A commercial invoice is used for all shipments containing non-documents.
The commercial invoice is the primary document used for importation control, valuation, and duty determination.
The document identifies the items being shipped.
Easyship generates a commercial invoice based on the information entered into the order.
This means that it is very important that you have a look at the commercial invoice to make sure that its correct before shipping your items.
Please note that the description of each item needs to be clear and easily understood.
For example, do not use internal codes or SKUs for the description.
Good example: "Gray Plastic Snow Showel A-100"
Bad example: "GPSS A-100"
For all shipments, the commercial invoice is the only base you have for the value of the shipment.
If a shipment is lost or damaged and there is included liability or insurance, the claim will be based on the value stated on the commercial invoice.
Note: There will be no included commercial invoice with the shipping label if the shipment is Domestic or with UPS. UPS receives all commercial invoice data digitally when you create the shipment, so there is no need to add a paper invoice.
