Customs Fee's

I haven't been using reusables for very long and I want to order some more cloth pads and eventually choose a second menstrual cup. I am in the US but there are only a few cup brands here. When I look at cloth pads, a lot of them are made outside of the US, especially those found on etsy. I've found a few things that a like and they are outside of the US.

I've read some horror stories about packages getting held up in customs and sometimes people having to pay ridiculous fee's in order to get their package. I've tried to research what the fees are all about but it is so much information and seems complicated. I am worried that if I buy anything outside of the US that this could happen to me. If it has anything to do with FDA approval, I can see where some shops state that they are approved while others don't mention it.

Does anyone know enough about it to be able to explain it? Has anyone else ever had to pay extra fee's to get their package?
