    Taas rin talaga kasi Fedex gamit. Okay ka naman sa myus?

    Sa computation ko kasi nasa 4k lang dapat yan in all duties. Yun 600 pesos sa warehouse fee and etc. ng fedex - lahat ng packages meron agad fee na yan.
    Doble kasi yun entry ng "custom duties or tax" sa 2049 pesos at 2648 pesos.

    Almost inflated ng 1k yun custom duties mo.

    Ang alam ko nagkakaroon lang ng importation kung commercial quantity pinadala - ilan items yan per specific type of item?

  • Nag ship out ako ng items sa kango nung weekend and otw na siya to PH since kahapon. While my SC shipment nung Sept 6 pa ako nag pa ship out pero wala pa rin update ngayon.

    Definitely skip niyo muna SC for now.
  • Buti nalang tapos na waiting time ko sa SC. Received my items na, complete and no damage. No custom duty tax kahit around $700 ang value ng item. I was able to refund din yung US state tax sa amazon but I need to edit the pdf sent by SC kasi hindi nakalagay yung order number ng amazon. Try ko naman Kango sa next purchase para zero US state tax na talaga, no need na mag refund sa amazon.
  • @sephy

    Yun last time na 199 usd kasi baka pasok pa siya sa tax free na 10k below. Kaya 500 lang talaga ang tax at total na binayaran. Ano ba karaniwan to at from location mo? Nabanggit mo kasi us to saudi.
  • Hi mga sir - wife has been requesting for a kitchenaid mixer, around 350usd - 31lbs, 14.3 x 9.5 x 14 inches sya sa amazon (30k++ sya dito satin). Never tried these forwarding services since I usually order directly from amazon and mostly mga non-electronic / small items lang.

    Anong recommended service provider na may sea freight option? And based sa nabasa ko, included na yung taxes and duties sa shipping cost, provided na accurate yung declared cost/weight/dimension, may instances ba na nagkaroon parin ng extra charges yung package outside sa actual shipping cost na naquote after nila mareceive yung actual items?
  • @Blimp

    May direct shipping to Pinas ba yun item mo from Amazon? Karaniwan kasi mas mura yun overall na mabilis pa kasi hindi sea shipping gamit. Tamang presyo lang for imported goods.

    Pero sige tama ka naman kung gusto mo yun medyo konti ang tax na babayaran. Check mo myshoppingbox/johnny air for sea shipping. Karaniwan shippingcart gamit dito pero madami sila backlogs baka matagalan ka. Sila na rin bahala sa custom and duties na babayaran mo. Puwede ka maginquire sa kanila kung magkano estimate.

    Wala pa ako experience sa may bigla fee na dapat babayaran besides sa sinabi na babayaran.
  • @stiko - thanks sa confirmation sir.

    250usd yung amz shipping (vs 60-80usd pag sea via forwarders). Almost kaprice narin nung item (350usd) yung shipping & tax pag air or amz. Will probably use myshoppingbox since parang sila na yung isa sa mga well known na may sea cargo option.
  • @Blimp

    Mataas pala talaga hindi ko napasin 31 lbs pala. Hehe. Okay ang myshoppingbox kasi may delivery option sila direkta sa doorstep sa Metro Manila (hindi ko lang alam sa provincial). Konti hintay lang sakali may aberya pero yun air cargo nila swabe. Yun total cost nalang ang tanong mo sa kanila baka may charges depende sa item value.

  • @Blimp

    Might be better to order elsewhere, unless willing ka gumamit ng transformer sa appliance mo. 110V usually ang mga gamit from US.
  • @stiko - by xmas pa naman daw nya need, since dun sya mag bbake ng marami, so as long dumating early dec and no additional dues, happy nako. May trauma lang talaga ako noon (2014 ata), umorder ako sa spigen ng 5 phone case (~4k php), tinawagan ako bigla ni fedex na kelangan ko mag bayad ng 3k for dues.

    Ang prob ngayon, gusto pa mag padagdag, tagal pa naman mag decide. :| oh well, quits lang kami, balak ko rin kumuha ng ps5 and upgrade ng pc in the coming months, di na mahirap magpaapprove. haha

    @scal - oo nga, realized this as well nung nakita ko yung amz purchased kong cordless phones ko na naka AVR(w/ stepdown trans). haha. Might justify buying another avr (w/ trans) for the ref since magkalapit yung ref ang yung kitchen workspace.
  • @Blimp sir my idea kaba kung ok lang naka on lagi ang transformer? Yung dedicated transformer lang na from 120v to 220v. May coffee maker din kasi ako galing amazon. Gusto ng coffee maker laging naka on eh. May low power mode siya. Wala akong makitang maayos na sagot kay google.
  • @jayvee1323 - old servo avr na may 2x220v and 1x110v kasi yung gamit ng cordless phone. 24x7 naman sya nakasaksak along with TV and console. I think wala naman problem unless mag loko yung avr/trans and mag exceed ng sobra within the 110v (100-130v?) yung converted output. And if ever, fuse pa naman yung unang masisira, mura lang yun palitan, depende lang minsan sa appliance kung madaling iopen para mareplace yung fuse.
  • @jayvee1323

    Wala problema naka on transformer 24/7 hindi naman pareho electrical load 24/7 dahil naka sleep mode lang naman. Pili lang ng maayos at yun malaki laki.
  • @Blimp thank you. naka saksak siya plus naka on tama?

    @stiko thanks. when you say malaki you mean malaki wattage diba? 500w ata yung coffee maker tapos yung transformer is 2k. I guess ok na yun?
