DAP is an abbreviation for Delivered at Place. This means that the seller is responsible for the price of packing goods as well as arranging for the cargo to be delivered at a location agreed upon with the buyer. The seller must ensure that the items arrive securely at their final destination, or he will be responsible for any delays. Local taxes and import tariffs are the buyer's responsibility.
In essence, DAP stands for Delivered Duty Paid (DDP). The delivery rules favor purchasers because the vendor bears the risks and is responsible for delivery. As a result, customers no longer have to suffer any costs upon delivery of goods.
