How does AliExpress handle the new EU VAT laws?

Since July 1st 2021, there is no VAT exemption limit in the EU anymore (well, actually it's $1).

AliExpress makes the process simple for you and adds the VAT to the purchase price, and then declares it for you.

That means you might have to pay a little more than before, but it got more comfortable and customs should never be a problem anymore (at least in terms of declared value).
