From 1 July 2018, each time you check out a ShopMate parcel and declare the value of the goods, you will be asked to provide payment for your ShopMate shipping and the applicable GST all in the same transaction^.
The rate of GST is 10%.
GST will be payable on:
- The value of the item(s) you are shipping into Australia via ShopMate including any shipping fees or local taxes paid to the USA retailer, and
- The value of the ShopMate shipping and service fee (including Extra Cover if applicable)
For example: 50cm X 30cm X 40cm
= 60,000cm3 ÷ 6,000
= 10kg cubic weight
If the actual weight of your parcel is 9kg but the cubic weight is 10kg, we'll charge you the cubic weight because it is greater. But if the parcel's actual weight is 16kg, we'll charge you the actual weight because it is greater than the cubic weight of 10kg.
