The transport mode to be used as well as the weight and total packages are indicated in a proforma invoice.
The preparation of this document is not complicated because it only entails a simple process as long as you have all the necessary details at hand.
Tip1. Consider all the costs you are likely to incur as a seller as you plan to ship the goods to the buyer. This will help you to be as precise as possible as you note down the total figure of sending the consignment. Such costs will include duties and customs fees, transportation and shipping costs, taxes, storage costs, insurance costs, among others.
Tip 2. Basically, the format of preparation is similar to commercial invoices you are currently using though the word “Proforma Invoice” has to be indicated on the front top page of the document.
If it has a validity period, this needs to be indicated together with exact details of both the receiver and sender.
Tip 3. The description of each item needs to be indicated separately if there are a number of items to be shipped, and this needs to be as detailed as possible. The country of origin is a requirement by customs, and it needs to be indicated too.
