^^ i did that too....its not under the post office's control...so no matter how much u paid ur postman, u will get charged customs



peace


Yup! thats pretty much clear from MT's earlier posts. Big relief is that I dont have to(or, hope so) visit the custom at local airport. I will pay for the chalan to the postman and collect my stuff.

^ If they get suspicious of the declared purchase amount thou, then you'll have to visit the custom office with relevant documents.

I'd say go with Air bubble. The box just attracts attention.

My worst fear came true today, but not without a happy ending!

I had ordered :

08. Dec, 2007 - AV Adapter/Cable/Optical Cable (PA)
13. Dec, 2007 - DVI Cable (PA)
20. Dec, 2007 - DS3 (PA) :dance:
22. Dec, 2007 - God of War 1 and 2

I received everything together today. Was calculating the customs in my mind when the guy was handing over the parcels.
But he just took my sig and left!! :jumpy:

Had used free shipping with Economy Air bubble. The cable and adapter were in a box thou.

PS : Those are shipping dates , btw!

That all the items came together! There were four different parcels, 3 from PA, all addressed to me. Maybe it doesn't ever happen, but you never know! They could've just added everything and added 30-40% customs to it.
Specially, since they were shipped with their original prices on the invoices(including DS3 and God of War 1/2).
Or maybe it had already passed the customs,one by one, and was accumulating at the local PO!

recd UT3 today, but sadly no sign of the DS3.


any others waiting for their ds3 shipments? maybe we should mention each others order numbers when contacting PA support just to let them know that it's not a one-off case.

Uh-oh! My Assassin's Creed seems to have been shipped on 31st December 2007. I ordered it on 30th Dec 07. I hope it reaches within this one week.

P.S. Can I say I ordered it last year now? :giggle:

All these complaints regarding Play Asia's free delivery are scaring me. I am thinking of ordering an expensive item from PA and I dont want to pay for premium shipping. But these complaints about delivery delays and wrong products being shipped are quite scary.

For the record, I have ordered from PA on several occasions and have used both, the premium and free shipping options. Never had a problem with delivery or incorrect product shipments.

I have never had a problem really. Only once it took quite long (around 17 days), when it was the Christmas season and a massive under-sea earthquake in South-East Asia had disrupted internet cables.
