Hello. Is there a limit of purchases of 4K Bluray in Amazon? Bought 3 titles. Naunang naship yung 2. Then yung last kakaship lang kahapon and ang status ngayon is Delayed at Customs "Your package is being processed by Customs officials. UPS may require additional information from you."

What is the biggest item (in terms of size) you have ordered from Amazon? also less than 10 k.
I am thinking of ordering a PC monitor, and would like to know if I would be having any problems shipping it here. So far I dont have any problems with my orders, which are small and less than 10 k , from books to Bluray box sets

New Bureau of Customs Memo Adds Fees to De Minimis Shipments

Do you constantly have things shipped from abroad? Then pay attention cause your next small package may cost you more than usual. The Bureau of Customs' (BOC) latest memo on customs duties, fees, and charges adds fees to "de minimis" shipments, with DHL Philippines announcing that it will soon come into effect.

The BOC's Customs Administrative Order (CAO) No. 02-2024 memo introduces customs charges, affecting shipments entering the Philippines with a value of Php 10,000 and below, a.k.a. de minimis shipments. 

And so for folks that rely on DHL, note that starting June 17, a new handling fee of Php 430 will be added to "de minimis" shipments in adherance to regulations outlined in the memo. The express service provider emphasized that this fee will not be subject to VAT as it is a BOC charge. It will also be reflected in your invoice and receipt.

I read a comment somewhere that the additional cost is on a total shipment basis. For example, for one airplane, the extra cost is 30k or 40k. so you distribute it amongst all the shipments it should cost minimal. But DHL is making a money grab by using this as an excuse to charge php430 per package.
