When making a purchase on a site in Japan, the obligations and responsibilities of the buyer can vary depending on the terms and conditions set by the specific seller. However, there are general regulations and considerations regarding taxes and import customs fees that buyers should be aware of:
Taxes: The buyer may be responsible for paying any applicable taxes, such as value-added tax (VAT) or goods and services tax (GST), depending on the destination country's tax regulations. These taxes are typically calculated based on the purchase price, including shipping costs.
