Official Customs, Duties, and International Shipping Questions and Stories Thread - Page 52

post #766 of 841
The package needed a signature and I missed the first attempt, so I just went to Fedex to pick it up myself. They didn't say anything when I picked it up so should I expect a bill in the mail?

There's no way of knowing. You can call and check or just wait.

Interested in purchasing an item from Oi Polloi that is $115 shipped.
They use DHL. How much should I expect to pay in fees to the US?

Nothing. I don't usually pay anything with DHL and with the new customs/import laws you're good.

wtf........ just got fedex duties bill for purchases from endclothing.

 

-_-

anyone have experience with Need Supply and customs declaration.

Just bought something and used a promotional code to get 25% off but they say they will mark the goods for customs at the value before the discount code was applied.

Seems very strange - surely the value if the item is the final Sale price?

Been looking to order from an eBay vendor in Italy that carriers a large selection of Santoni shoes.

Does anyone know what i should be expecting to pay in import fees to the US?

Any idea why LNCC charges duties as part of their price if there's no duty charged below 800? Can I get them to refund that?
post #774 of 841
Yeah email them and they'll refund the duties manually. They've done it twice for me and said they just don't have a process to automatically remove duties based on destination at this point.

"You are correct that the usual import threshold to the US is $800 before any duties are charged. However, some products are notable exceptions and will be charged regardless of their cost as a result of their material content and the description of goods. As my colleague advised, Sunglasses are not covered by this free trade agreement, much like pressurized containers or toxic substances."

 

wtf........paying duties for made in portugal sunglasses thats <200 usd. ended up returning them but its just a hassle contacting fedex to get it waived and all. avoid fedex at all costs

Note that the following are exempt from this provision and still require entry and payment of applicable duties and taxes:

Shipments of alcohol, perfume containing alcohol, cigars and cigarettes of any value
Goods subject to U.S. fish and wildlife regulation of any value
Medications and medical devices (including glasses & sunglasses) of any value
Other goods subject to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation valued over $200

wow.

http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/GuidanceDocuments/ucm073951.htm

so that makes it taxable as an import? what's the logic?

edit: maybe it's because the fda has to check them for shatterproofness http://blog.marisolintl.com/fda-import-alert-eyewear-products
