kakabadtrip talaga sa amazon. mas mataas palitan ng peso sa dollar. nag order ako 4tb seagate ang 119 $ ko inabot ng 6,700+ my tax pa na 432. tsk tsk.

You can avoid taxes by buying from amazon marketsellers.. Minsan mas mababa pa price nila.

Medyo nag-e-effort ang Walmart lumaban sa Amazon. Mas maliit pa din variety ng products na available sa kanila, but they've been offering free 2-day shipping for orders worth at least $35 since January. Very competitive yung free shipping nila within the US.

Just looked up a couple of things (HID bulbs and Asics shoes), their selection is poor compared to Amazon.

True. It's supposedly about a fifth of what's in Amazon.

I don't think Amazon takes PayPal. You can move the funds to your credit / debit card for use.

Amazon does not accept paypal.
Beware that some sellers are like reseller at higher price. Just recently, purchased some small items from I thought one seller but arrived at separate packets which cost me more on shipping. Another item came with ebay receipt which less than half what I paid.  :(

Customs tax is totall different


100 pesos if for Post office storage fee. Not tax.
12 Pesos for the vat.

so bale 112 binayaran mo.


Nun may customs tax pa eto ang usual computation

if 2000 Price ng  DVD mo. sabihin natin 10% ang tax dyan

200 Customs tax + 100 Post office = 300 ang vat taxable.

12% ng 300 is 36 pesos.

300 Pesos + 36 pesos = 336 pesos.


336 pesos is 300% ng 112 na binayaran mo ngayon.



Imagine kung may 8000 pesos ka na item kagaya ng relo.

Customs tax palang 800 pesos

800 + 100 pesos  = 900 pesos x 12% =   108 pesos na vat

900 pesos  customs  + 100 pesos post office + 108 pesos na vat

1,008 pesos. 900% na yan sa 112 na babayaran mo ngayon.

In short kung wala special conditions, flat rate na lang  112 pesos ang  babayaran mo pag below 10,000 ang pinadala mo sa pinas.

Nasa batas ang ano pinapatawan ng VAT

baka hindi pa sakop ng expanded vat yung resibo mo.

Done. So helpful. Many thanks.
Need to wait for 2 to 4 business days for my Paypal funds to appear in my BPI account.

You can contact Amazon Customer Service if you have additional questions on the process. HTH.

Never use Amazon currency converter when buying. Their PESO-DOLLAR rate is almost always higher than your credit card's rate.

Believe talaga ako sa amazon and its 3rd parties. I ordered a suppose to be audio cd of Mall Cop. I like the movie soundtrack hehe. Dumating sa akin dvd. This is for 30 dollars pa.  I complained to them that it specifically says in the amazon website na "audio cd"..They refunded me the money and they said I don't even have to send the item back. No questions asked.

Galing talaga. So nice to shop in amazon and america.
7.2 sounds awesome
