Unfortunately the answer is, "Yes, probably."
If you are shipping to a country other than the U.S.A, you will likely need to pay customs, taxes, clearance duty or other extra fees at the time you accept the package. We don’t collect the fees when you place the order, and it’s your responsibility to pay these fees as the consumer.
For example, German customers pay duty at 4.7% and VAT at 19%.
For reference, our HS code for most products is: 9503.00.0090
