   Q14. Why do you need attach commercial invoice to the shipment Sample 
   A14. Commercial Invoice is required when exporting your parcel shipment to overseas.
           It is an essential document for customs declaration to the country you send to.
           When processing customs clearance, depending on the amount you declared,
           import tax is levied. In this aspect, you need to attach an invoice even though
           there is no commercial value to the shipment. If you declared only the model
           number of the parts with the word "sample" without a value, the information may
           not be sufficient for the customs to determine and clear the shipment. This may
           result in an inspection and thus the process of Import and Export clearance is delayed.
