What is an HS Tariff Code?

The HS Tariff Code field is now available when adding or editing a product.

It relates to the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, also known as the Harmonized System (HS) of tariff nomenclature. It is an international standardised system of names and numbers that classifies products.

It's used on customs declarations when you are sending your products overseas.

The field is completely optional, and you do not need to complete.

If you don't know the HS Tariff Code for your product you can look for it on the UK Government Website - see https://www.trade-tariff.service.gov.uk/trade-tariff/sections. Please note that unfortunately our support team are unable to help you locate the right code for your products.

The HS Tariff Code is not used on the ShopWired system itself but will be used on the Royal Mail Click & Drop app that will be launched in February 2018. For more information about it please select 'apps and extensions' from the left menu of your account and locate the app.
