how do you know when you have to pay customs on mail you’re receiving?

I recently ordered something from South Korea to the U.S. and the website told me that any customs charges are my responsibility to pay. How do I know if there are customs charges? Will the customs agency contact me? Will my local post office? Will the website? Or do I have to somehow find that information on my own?

    You will get a notifiction card that your package is ready for delivery/collection and the cost...or a knock on the door and will have to pay customs charges/tax before you get your package

    They just say that crap. It never happens. Ive bought dozens of items from overseas. I never had to pay anything.
