Section 321

Section 321 eliminates duty fees

Import your goods to Canada and determine the best duty deferral or duty drawback plan for your brand.

How it works

First, you adjust your supply chain to ship your goods to Canada. This makes you eligible for Duty Deferrals or Duty Drawback programs, as well as Canada’s more generous Free Trade Agreements.

Second, your customers in the U.S. place an order (U.S. consumers are entitled to have up to $800 USD shipped to them daily and duty-free with Section 321). Once those orders are delivered to the US customer, your duty drawback is issued.

Ready, Set, Ship!

How it works

Store inventory in Canada or Mexico and AMZ Prep fulfills Section 321-compliant orders (≤$800) to your customers in the United States.

Real Savings to your bottom line

Duty fees are a variable that has to be accounted for when calculating landed costs. And different countries have different duty fees based on trade agreements that can be tricky to navigate.

Here’s an example:

  • One pair of shoes imported from China to Canada

  • Value for Duty: $12.00

  • Duty Rate 18%: $2.16

  • $2.16 Savings (for just 1 pair of shoes!) through Duty Drawback or Duty Deferral
