Initially, when we start business we go for small orders of 1-2 or max 3 cartons of products. Here we use international shipping companies such as FedEx, DHL to deliver products on our doorstep. These companies bring a product from China to India and also take responsibility to clear it from customs but here they will require your KYC documents. These companies will also pay customs on your behalf and when they come to deliver product to your doorstep then they will take all the customs charges from you which they have already paid on your behalf.
