Standard settings for shipping costs from the Netherlands
Which countries should I choose?
Choose only countries where you are allowed to ship to. Major shipping companies like DHL, TNT, DPD and UPS deliver parcels to almost any country in the world. You have to ask yourself if it is worth for the buyer to buy bottles if the shipping will be very expensive. It is probably not useful to add countries with very high shipping costs to your list.
Warning: Russia, Ukraine and Canada do not allow import of alcoholic drinks through mail. If you ship to these countries they will usually send the parcel back to you. If you ship to one of these destinations the parcel will usually not be insured.
You are allowed to receive whisky in Taiwan, but there is a maximum of 5 liters per day per address.
