How much will I have to pay extra? For example:

A customer from Germany bought the leather cover for 70 euros. The shipping fee is 20 euros. We will declare the cost of cover without the shipping fee – 50 euros. Value added tax (VAT) in Germany – 19%.

Approximately sum of VAT will be 50*0,19= 9,50 euros
Service fee for Germany = 6 euros
Total payment (9,50 + 6) = 15,50 euros

«Latigo leather is most commonly made from cowhide. It is first chrome tanned, which involves soaking the hide in a solution of acidic salts and then drying it before further processing. Next it is vegetable tanned by soaking it in a series of vats with progressively higher concentrations of tanning solutions. After completing the tanning process, the hides are tumbled in large drums to absorb various oils and waxes. This makes them more pliable and supple, while retaining their strength»
