What is the Carta Porte requirement for shipments to Mexico?

The Mexican government requires all shipments to, from, and within Mexico to include a Bill of Lading Complement (Complemento Carta Porte). The Bill of Lading must include package-level merchandise descriptions, which are separate from traditional customs item information requirements.

You can create a Bill of Lading when creating an international label in the PayPal Shipping Center. Enter a description of your package items in the Contents Description field of the Package and Weight details.
