Hi, I am planning to open an online merchandise shop and for that, I want to import some merchandise like tshirts and accessories from the US. I would like to know what would be the approx custom charge if i were to import apparel(tshirts) weighing 50kgs? Anybody done this before or has any idea? Your advice would be really appreciated.

Samples or merchandise? 50 kgs won't go very far. My cousin's Kashmiri connection carries that much in one armload of Pashmina..

Are you sure ? The only 100% Amrikan shirt I have (i.e cotton cloth and manufacturing in the US, is 15 year old Brooks Brother $150 shirt) rest are all from your neck of the woods - Bangladesh/India/Cambodia/Vietnam.

Begin by looking at Binh Tay whole sale market in Sai Gon. Minimum unit is 100 pieces of shirts (maybe they'll go for 50) printed "I love NY" at an equiv of 30USD. Those T-shirts land up in the tourist gulch of NYC selling for 4 for 10USD. Sometimes, 5.

I'll sell you "I love NY" shirts for .....make me an offer I cannot refuse ! ? (100 pieces for 110USD FOB ex-JFK? )
