What if I don't include a Commercial Invoice with an order?

(Ecommerce) I just learned that I've been probably doing it wrong for 2 years - not including Commercial Invoices with all my orders. Since I fulfil from my home using the local post office to ship internationally, all I include is a shipping label. I'll start including commercial invoices from now on, but I'm curious why, since my orders almost always reach the customer just fine?

What happens when a Commercial Invoice is not included with an order?

If you don't include a CI and the shipment is stopped at the border, the shipment can be delayed while you provide the CI. If you don't respond quickly enough, they could return the shipment back to you or destroy the shipment.
