Shipping to Brazil? CPF – What You Need to Know

brazilShipping to Brazil? You need to know about a new customs regulation.

Beginning this summer, all packages must be clearly labeled with the recipient’s name, address, and Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas (or, for short, CPF) – their tax ID number.  Without a CPF on the label, packages will be delayed in customs and could be returned to sender with a service charge levied.

Many eCommerce merchants are not yet collecting CPF numbers at the time of purchase, and this creates headaches for everyone involved in getting the package delivered – especially the customer.
