Megatop Policies

International Sales

Megatop ships only within the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. However, international customers may request, and Megatop will ship to an approved freight forwarder in the contiguous United States. 

If you use a freight forwarder, please contact us and provide a contact name, phone number, and email address for a point of contact at the freight forwarder.

Due to manufacturer restrictions, some products we offer may not be available for export outside the domestic market. 

We reserve the right to inquire into the end user, end-use, and country of the ultimate destination of any Product ordered on this Site.



  1. The preferred payment method for international volume orders is wire transfer, with all bank charges prepaid by the customer. The order should be pre-paid in full in US currency. We will send you a Proforma Invoice with the total amount due, including the merchandise total and domestic shipping charges (inland freight) with payment instructions.  
  2. On a case-by-case basis, we accept Western Union payments or credit cards, however, the credit card must have a US billing address. We reserve the right to set a transaction limit or cancel an export order paid by credit card. If you are using an international credit card with your 2nd billing address in the US (the billing address provided by the package forwarding company), please contact us before placing the order.


Shipping & Freight

  1. If we ship to the US address of your freight forwarder, your shipping charges will include the inland freight and insurance charge from the warehouse to the freight forwarder’s address. All other international forwarding and documentation charges will be billed to you by your freight forwarder. 
  2. On a case-by-case basis, we can accept the customer’s UPS, FedEx, or DHL account for inland freight. We do not accept COD (Cash on Delivery). Sometimes, we can offer a pick-up from the manufacturer's location or Megatop’s warehouses.
  3. All volume export orders are shipped F.O.B. Origin with all costs imposed by the carrier related to the shipment paid by Megatop and charged to the customer on the customer’s invoice. Receipts for freight charges are not furnished. Fuel surcharges and other surcharges may be applied — title and risk of loss pass to the customer upon tender of shipment to the carrier. If the product is damaged in transit, the customer's only recourse is to file a claim with the carrier. If a customer chooses freight collect, shipments will be F.O.B. Origin using a courier designated by the customer.
  4. The reference to the inland freight charge in the Proforma Invoice is an estimate. Occasionally, the shipping costs in the quotation may fluctuate based on external factors such as rate increases for a particular region, seasonal adjustments by shipping carriers or freight forwarders, etc. Megatop works to get the best shipping rates for all orders, but the shipping price charged at the time of shipment may be greater or less than the original shipping estimate.
  5. Megatop will not be responsible for differences that may occur between estimates contained in a Proforma Invoice and actual charges applicable at the time of shipment to the freight forwarder. If actual shipping charges exceed the original shipping costs, Megatop will contact the customer via email for approval before shipping. The customer shall incur and be responsible for all costs associated in addition to that. This may require additional payment based on the adjusted shipping quote.


Taxes, Duties, and Fees

  1. Should an order be requested to be shipped to Canada or Mexico, Megatop is neither responsible nor liable for any taxes, duties, fees, or other charges associated with processing such North American Free Trade Agreement shipments. All such charges and requirements are the sole responsibility of the customer. A separate invoice for these charges will be received from a freight forwarder, FedEx, UPS, or other 3rd parties.
  2. All International orders are subject to additional charges and fees, shipping rates, applicable customs duties, and taxes, all of which are the customer’s responsibility. Additional charges may include, but are not limited to, delivery area surcharges, extended area delivery surcharges or oversize fees, etc.


Proforma Invoice

  1. Proforma Invoice cannot only be issued based on the product's specifications. We require the exact manufacturer name and part number to make sure that the product supplied is what is needed. Megatop will issue a Proforma Invoice once we receive the following information.

    • Products’ names, part numbers, and quantities;
    • Country of ultimate destination;
    • Confirm whether you require additional documents or certificates;
    • Your point of contact at the freight forwarder.
  2. Proforma Invoice will provide the itemized list of products, the merchandise total, estimated domestic freight charges to your freight forwarder (inland freight), and payment instructions. Charges for insurance and shipping will be added to the Proforma invoice unless other arrangements are made. 


Standard Terms of Sale

  1. Megatop’s Standard Terms of Sale are listed on the Proforma Invoice along with the payment instructions. The standard pricing is F.O.B. shipping point, at which legal title and product responsibility are transferred to the customer.
  2. Megatop is not responsible for delays due to customs, documentation needed for pick up, additional storage fees for holding a package, power of attorney, or other form letters to release the package.



  1. Copies of the Commercial Invoice and Packing List are sent via email to you or your freight forwarder when your order is released. Original Commercial Invoice and Packing List with stamp and signature are sent separately from the merchandise. 
  2. The hard copies of the documents or certificates are not provided unless otherwise requested by the customer. Please contact us to order hard copies of the documents at the time of the request, and we will include the postage cost in our Proforma Invoice.
  3. All other documentation, including but not limited to legalization, an apostil, certificates of origin, etc., should be requested from your freight forwarder. A handling charge may apply for export documentation or special packaging for ocean freight.

Sales Tax Regulations For Export Orders

  1. Sales tax is a tax imposed by the government on the sale of goods and services. The sales of items to a resident of another country may be taxable or exempt depending on the shipping address for the particular order. 
  2. By shipping address, it means a location where your order will be drop-shipped by our company. So, for example, if you would like us to deliver the order to your forwarding agent in Florida, and then the agent will ship it to your address outside of the US, the shipping address for Megatop will be the agent’s location in Florida.
  3. If the order will be shipped to the US location, the sales tax will be applied based on the applicable state and local sales tax regulations and rates.
  4. Almost all the states of the USA require sellers to collect sales tax from their customers. Only five states do not charge sales tax on purchases: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon. If you would like us to ship the order to one of these sales-tax-free states, the sales tax will not be collected.
  5. The sales tax must be collected if the order needs to be shipped to your freight forwarder’s location in any other state. However, once the order is shipped outside of the US, you may provide us with a Bill of Lading or an Air Waybill issued by a licensed and certificated carrier, and we will issue a refund for the sales tax amount. 
    The document must include the following information:
    • Seller's information (company's name and address);
    • Megatop Order number;
    • information about purchased items (brand & part numbers).
  6. Please note that any other documents that don't meet the requirements above will NOT be considered for sales tax returns. The credit will be applied upon the appropriate documents received and approved.
  7. If you would like us to ship the order to a residential area in the US, the sales tax amount will not be refunded due to the state sales tax regulations. In this case, the government considers that you or another person can take possession or control the purchased item before it is transported out of the country.
  8. In other words, to avoid the sales tax, you might choose one of the following options:
    1. Shipping the order outside of the US:
      1. with our shipping account, no additional documents are required;
      2. with your shipping account: a shipping label or a copy of the air waybill is required.
    2. Shipping the order to one of the sales-tax-free states (Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon);
    3. Shipping the order to a licensed forwarding agent’s location in Florida if a 0% sales tax rate is assigned;
    4. Shipping the order to a forwarding agent’s location in any other state of the US, but the sales tax will be applied to your order first. We will issue the refund for the sales tax amount once the order is shipped out of the country and you provide us a copy of the Bill of Lading or an Air Waybill as proof of exportation.

The sales tax amount will be applied to your order and will not be refunded if:

  1. The order is to be shipped to a residential area in the USA;
  2. You will not be able to provide a necessary document that can be proof of export;
  3. Your document will only be approved if it meets the mentioned requirements.

Note: If you need to make the shipment changes once the order is paid but not shipped, we may contact you and advise the sales tax amount to be paid if necessary.


Florida Export Sales Tax Refund

Florida has a unique sales tax exemption applied only to this state. Florida assigns a 0% sales tax rate to zip codes occupied exclusively by licensed forwarding agents. As the products purchased by customers are shipped to these locations primarily for export purposes, the state regulations exempt these transactions from the sales tax. You may contact your freight forwarder for detailed information about the specific freight forwarder’s address and the sales tax rate.


Megatop will be happy to send you a tax credit on your Export Order. To receive your refund, please email a copy of the original Bill of Lading and a copy of your original Megatop invoice.

Email the scanned copies to Scanned copies must be in PDF or TIF format. Unfortunately, we cannot accept phone pictures of the documents.

To ensure a refund, please be sure the Bill of Lading describes the merchandise purchased and the Consignee is the same name as the Sold-to on the Megatop receipt.

All refunds will be processed back to the credit card used on the original purchase. If paid by check or wire transfer, a refund check will be issued using the enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope.
