I was thinking about selling a few products and was wondering if anyone has any info on the shipping and import process for Ukraine?
My understanding is that it will be trickier for Russia now as certain companies have pulled out.

Was thinking smaller items with high markups that can be shipped in USPS boxes. Ideas?

It depends on various things, what the products are, size, weight, their value, where they are being sent from,  etc etc need more info to be able to advise.

Was thinking of small items with high markup. For example a friend of ours sends is a box of teeth whitening strips to Russia. She makes $600 per sent box. Maybe via USPS with a box under 50 pounds. Was wondering if that would slide under the import
taxes, etc.

Products would be sent from US, but looking at China and Brazil as well for certain items.
