Happy with my Amazon transaction (an nVidia Shield).  1 week lang from ordering to delivery to my home.  Price-wise would have been more or less equal to ordering using Johnny Air Plus.

Question:

I ordered an item last dec 30, that's almost 10k and another item a week after that that costs 3k.  Amazon then shipped it at the same time with the same tracking number. Would I have any issues with customs?

I've been ordering various stuff online, wala ako naging problem whatsoever sa customs charges, haven't experienced any loss sa mail, I'm hoping mag tuloy tuloy experience ko, I've lived in Pasig, QC, now in Rizal, I had a solitary incident a guy sa QC Post Office tried charging me, strangely when I returned the next day iba yun tao humarap sa akin (I didn't tell the new person of my incident the previous day waiting for whatever charges sabihin), no charges LOL

dito sa Rizal they deliver straight to your door compared sa Pasig and QC where they send you parcel notice

not sure what your items are, but unless it's commercial quantity I don't think you'll have any problems, if fragile or expensive yun items I usually use a courier service (Johnny Air etc) para meron ka pwede habulin in case meron problem better yet get mail insurance

if I remember correctly binayad ko starts at $3 for $100 coverage then additional increments the higher coverage mo, yes additional expense but peace of mind din in case fragile yun item or against mail loss

If I bought two items from different sellers, will Amazon place it in one package or separate? Pwede pala kasing separate orders para maclaim yung free shipping for orders 49USD and up.

From my experience, separate deliveries yan.

They consolidate when it's convenient for them. Kung hindi, they will ship the items separately.

Sa mga nakasubok magbayad ng import fee, 12% ng $217 lang ba ang babayaran na import tax? Ang laki kasi ng deposit, $98.

No, it'd be more than 12%. Yung 12% na sinasabi mo is just VAT; there's import duty to consider (this will vary depending on the item category and the origin of the item).

Has anybody here tried ordering from Amazon Japan? I’m guessing reliable naman siguro?

Sharing this tax calculator. Di ko sure kung accurate pero nung tumawag ako sa hotline ng Customs, eto yung ginamit nila to determine the estimate tax.
