Shecks, so im hitting a wall sa tax refund request ko (around $50-60 din pala!) since need talaga ni Amazon yung Bill of Landing or Air Waybill  to facilitate the request.

Si my shopping box dedma na sa follow ups ko. was even asking na i-certify na lang nila na yung mga orders na yun eh na-ship nga sakin. bad trip.

Anyways, looking at getting items shipped direct from Amazon which costs around $25 average, mas matipid pa talaga ata compared to using third party shippers since

  • No sales tax
  • Depending on the box dimension when shipped, baka mas mura pa if direct from Amazon
  • takes just a week max to be delivered
  • ayoko na mag MSB  >:(

^ so true!

Nag-order ako ng AmazonBasics Wall-Mount Monitor Arm last Dec. 8. Direct shipping na at hindi ko na pinadaan sa SC since mas mahal pa yung SC air shipping by $10 tapos mas mabagal pa. Wala na rin charge na US taxes.

Dumating na yung Am*zonBasics wall mount monitor arm ko kagabi. 5 days lang from ordering, delivered to my door by UPS. Sa tingin ko mabilis na considering peak season ngayon. Walang hininging extra customs payment ang UPS sa akin unlike yung FedEx dati. Buti hindi ko na pinadaan ito sa US cargo forwarder. :)

Mabilis talaga saka pag wala 10k total yung payment mo wala siya additional payment like tax or import fees. 5 days din inabot ng nvidia ko kasi binago na nila import tax pag 10k and below wala.

I went through hoops buying an Ergotron monitor arm desk mount a couple of years ago. Good to know that you can have it shipped directly to your doorstep now!

yes maganda sya basta di malaking item and below 10k minimum of $22 and shipping door to door. Pag madami at pag total mo more than 10k pde mo gawin multiple order para di malagyan ng import fees.

Basta wag lang more than 10k and di ganun kabulky pasok na pasok yan sa no import fees. I got 8TB external 8500 lang. Pag more than 10k ang total ng item including shipping may imprt fees na note include the shipping on the computation of 10k.

Yes no more imprt fees i got my nvidia shield 8500 door to door delivery they use UPS for the shipping. Dati USPS sila kaya dumadaan sa post office now hindi na.

I believe the shipping is still door to door as they are the one collecting the import fees.

Confirm ko lang sirs... pag below Php10,000 cost of the item, no duties/taxes na and the item will be shipped door to door? Previous experience ko kasi was I had to pick the item up from the post office which was a hassle.

TIA

Yes twice na akong nagoorder sa amazon and i believe even more than 10k door to door pa din kasi si amazon na din naniningil ng import fees. I order mga 8k+ isang nvidia shield and isang external 8TB magkaibang order. Dati kasi USPS gamit nila AFAIK kaya sa post office bagsak ng delivery. Ngayon gamit nila is UPS na kaya door to door na.

I believe same lang sa international wag lang sila gagamit ng papunta post office na shipping kung hindi yari sila naman lagi naniningil extra na dapat wala. Imho

Anyone tried importing items from amazon worth more than ₽10,000 in the last 12 months?

Any import duties charged upon arrival?

Dollar kasi mas mababa ang exchange rates ng Credit Card kesa sa Amazon.
