Currently, service fees are only charged on requests coming from the U.S. and Canada on a reciprocal basis and at the equivalent amount.

This post was first published in CJO GLOBAL, which is committed to providing consulting services in China-related cross-border trade risk management and debt collection. We will explain how debt collection works in China below.

For the request from the U.S., the service fees are charged with the rate of 95.00 USD per recipient in China. For the request from Canada, the service fees are charged with the rate of 100.00 CAD per recipient in China. These fees should be paid by wire transfer according to the new rule of the Supreme People’s Court of China and the detailed payment information is as follows:
