About the Commercial Invoice
Three copies of the commercial invoice or pro forma invoice (if a commercial invoice is not available) are required for all your non-document shipments. Business or personal stationery may be used for these invoices if it contains all the required shipment information that is on your invoice.

Note: WorldShip® generates export documentation automatically.

Items that are required on your commercial invoice include:

  • Name and address of shipper (seller) as shown on the address label, including a contact person and telephone number.
