What is Section 321? How does it eliminate import duty costs?

Part of the U.S. Customs Act known colloquially as “Section 321” (derived from this provision’s statutory source, 19 U.S.C. § 1321(a)(2)(C)), this bit of regulation allows for U.S. citizens to import into the country, in a single day, goods worth less than $800—duty free. That makes it an extremely attractive option for importers looking to save money on e-Commerce services.
