Tried and tested ko yung delivery deretso sa Pinas.  No tax charges yung Black Friday $139.99 Shield TV hanggang makarating sakin.  Additional tipid tip, laging piliin yung USD as payment currency sa Amazon kasi mas mababa ang nagiging actual charges sa credit card kumpara sa PHP payment currency.

Sa pagkakaalam ko wala nang sales tax kung shipped directly to Philippines. Baka yan talaga ang shipping charge ng UPS. Pwede kasing mahal kasi sila depending on the size of the package.

If ever may state sales tax, pwede naman mag apply ng tax refund as long as may bill of lading na indicated na yung shipping address ay dito sa PHL.

Walang US tax meron yan is import fees pag 10k pataas andun na lahat kasa import tax.

UPS ang gamit and ung gaank katagal ang shipping depende sa location ng item. I got 2 items nauna ung isa na inorder pero sabay sila na magdeliver sa tuesday.

Kasama lagi yung shipping sa computation ng import fees. So pag total mo is more than 10k item price and shipping for sure may import fees yan.

not in my case but it happened only once. nag screenshot ako in PHP tapos pinili ko USD pa rin pero nung lumabas na yung actual charge is mas napamahal ako ng around 500php.

Citibank card ginamit ko pero ngayon mababa na ulit palitan

pag checkout in peso yun na actual charge pero pag USD is pag i-charge na and depende sa exchange rate but maybe i'm wrong.

i just compared it like halimbawa nasa hongkong ka then papiliin ka kung peso or hkd pag peso pinili is yun na actual charge pero pag hkd is depende sa palitan kung kelan ka i-charge.

Conan,

UPS or Fedex nalang options ngayon. I purchased a few times na din. Before kasi madalas surface shipping via USPS kaya sobrang tagal.

Quick question, sorry if this has been asked. Hindi na ako nakapagbackthread. Can you apply for a tax exemption if you used a shipping address from My Shopping Box?

Hingi ka ng bill of lading with your Philippine address galing MSB tapos email mo sa [email protected] kasama yung order #. Mabilis ang processing ng tax refund ng Amazon. Almost instantaneously kung in order yung documentation.

We do regret on this but we can't provide a copy of bill of lading but you can use your AWB copy
that you will receive together with your package upon delivery.

di tuloy ako makapag claim  :(

Sayang. Yung Shipping cart nagbibigay ng bill of lading via email kung walang kasama yung box Or nawala na. I don’t use MSB so ganun pala sila.
