How will VAT apply to orders shipped from Europe?

Starting October 1st, Printful will apply a VAT charge for orders that are fulfilled at our Europe location with an end-address in the European Union. Orders going to non-EU member states will not have a VAT charge.

For now, Printful will cover the cost of VAT to orders going to the EU where applicable.

Customers that have a registered VAT ID that's been verified by Printful will be charged 0% for shipments within the EU region. We'll add a VAT charge to customers without a verified VAT ID. Regardless, it's your responsibility to collect VAT from your customers and understand your obligations.

We'll calculate VAT with the following formula: (Printful product price - discounts + shipping price)*VAT rate 21%

We'll let you know via email when we start to charge VAT, and we'll give you plenty of notice to prepare.
