To streamline international shipments, Fictiv offers a Shipment Upgrade program, at no additional cost, for prototype orders greater than $800, delivered to a US address. With this upgrade, Fictiv becomes the Importer of Record, reducing the amount of customs information required from you, which mitigates the risk of shipment delays.

How it Works

After your order is placed, you'll be asked if your parts are for Commercial or Prototype purposes.

A part qualifies as a “prototype” if it meets the following criteria:

  • Your part is in pre-production, production, or post-production state

  • Your part is to be used exclusively for development, testing, product evaluation, or quality control purposes

  • Your order is limited to non-commercial quantities, in accordance with industry practices

Your order may qualify for a free Shipment Upgrade if it meets all of the following criteria:

  1. Your entire order qualifies as a prototype

  2. Your order value is greater than $800 USD

  3. Your order’s destination address is within US

If your order does not meet this criteria, check out this article to learn more about the standard international shipping process.
