Hi ....I know cattylink and other mail order, but i thought it would be much better if I buy from here if it is available. I dont have any experience with customs, DHL and all the factors that come into play when you import something. I would like to know if you have any information regarding this...
37% is not what I was told by DHL guys. They said that electronics would be 18% of the bill excluding the freight charge. Are you sure about this amount? Also what reliable documents would i need to produce? and where to produce. I am at hyderabad, and would I need to produce at the local post office or DHL office somewhere ?
Thank you very much for your information, Anil and sorry for bugging you. you might have saved several thousands of rupees!!!
Since it is going to be mail order with payment made through Paypal, the invoice/bill would not be there with me but the seller, so how can I produce the documents. Also the seller might underinvoice the product to save me from paying more duty, so do you think they are gonna screw the deal saying this!!
Please PM your Email
ebay sellers do not underinvoice an item or send it as a gift. By asking to do so he may not send the item to you, this might happen outside ebay.
After making a payment through Paypal you can print the invoice, this can be produced at customs.
Hi anil, The seller is well known reseller/distributor company in HK.
What pioneer model did you buy? Is it not available in India?
This is fantastic.. whats the shipping price usually ? Any sites where I can calculate the shipping price ? Is it usually based on price or on volume ?
Also, this means if I ask the item to be delivered to a friend within US and he ships it to me as a gift I would not need to pay customs ?
This is great stuff!!
Do post your comments.
If the seller agrees to underinvoice, you will save lot of money.
I bought Pioneer SA-9100, top of the line model n 1973, weighs 15 kg's. Even now it sells at $200. I won at $150 + shipping, it's in mint condition sounds great. Check the attached picture for ref.
