Guys,

 

I want to get a book from Amazon.com. It is $60 + $10 shipping. They are also charging 817 rupees for import duties. Are there import duties for books ? And are they this high ? Amazon also mentions that if the import duties are less than what was calculated - they will refund it. Has this happened to anyone ?

Went for 99$ during Black Friday. Possibly will go down in price again on Christmas.

Ideally, no. There are supposed to be no customs on books for personal use, but then you know the Indian custom officers.

During delivery (most probably via Aramex/DHL), you can see/ask how much customs was charged. The rest will be refunded after 60 days. Normally I get 40-60% back (but that's on blurays/figurines).

If you mean the Ghibli steelbooks, 68GBP (but I pre-ordered as soon as they went online). The prices have increased a bit now. But different SBs cost differently.

I fail to see PSV directly being sold by AMZ currently. Only 3rd party sellers (and free globalsaver is only for products sold directly by AMZ).

Hey folks, wanna buy a Kindle Paperwhite. The one sold in amazon.in is the old model. Looks like the late 2k13 model is not available here. Amazon is also not shipping the newer model to India. Any idea as to how I can get one?

@Bird Bird Bird in your experience any difference between Aramex & DHL when ordering from amazon (in terms of speed, duties applied, service etc) ? & can we somehow request amazon to use one or the other?

Our resident bird has not been seen on these forums for a long time. In the mean time I will try and answer your Amazon.com related questions.

Obviously the multi disc editions are better. More bang for the buck.But they are usually available, at good prices I might add, through Amazon US.

As for shipping, Amazon US offers Free International Shipping only on - 1) orders above $125 and 2) on products sold by Amazon. Add any product from third party sellers and you will have to pay shipping costs.

Both are fine, but in my experience DHL/FedEx are more liable to get hit with customs. I have been hit with customs on all my orders that were shipped in through DHL. Aramex on the other hand somehow sneak the package by. In terms of speed, none of my orders from Amazon have taken more than 7 business days to reach me.

+1.

 

Same opinion. Aramex is better ...in my case it is better in both delivery time as well as  passing custom without import fees.  i have got my package well before the estimated delivery date from them .
