usa parcels (only) attract huge customs duty.

i would rather urge you to consider some other option as the HUGE amount of money paid by us to customs , isnt worth the service they provide

maybe you can buy lots of other value for money goods than paying them customs

usps charges atleast
priority = 40usd
priority mail express = 50 usd

and
yes every parcel WILL BE INSPECTED AND ATLEAST INR 1000 CUSTOMS DUTY WILL BE CHARGED.

also
i would suggest you NOT TO BUY  with first class shipping , it will NOT ARRIVE, (india post will steal it ).

- based upon my experiences

BE INFORMED !!!
Hello Everyone,
@ Kartik:- Well you if you choose any Method In USPS you can ask the seller to Register it for Extra Security I think that Costs about 13 $ USD Approx and charges increases with Increase in parcel weight or Dimension well in that Feature also a First class Airmail Becomes Registered like Registered Airmail Coming From Other Countries Eg :- China or Singapore Or Hongkong.Also A Signature will be Required at the Time Of Delivery but yes if you choose Priority or Other methods you can ask the seller to Register Them too as its More Secure and ordering by DHL would not be good as they are detaining Items Related to R/C or Radio Tx/rx because of New Government Rules and Regulations ( Well No Offence to Them as they are just following the Rules well this is what I think. Well No Offence to them)
Once you receive customs notice for paymenT ....what are the options to pay that duty ....by check or. Online.  What maethod you prefer ....  

Till now I only received one time custo.Duty notic didn't paid it and claimed a replacmemt for parcel from banggood
Well I think Duties are To Be paid or Collected at the Time of Delivery right?? It is always collected at the Time of Delivery maybe sometimes in Advance needed but I think always collected at the time of Delivery well this is what it think.
Regards,
Aman.

and yes after the parcel arrives in india, it can still take significant time to doorstep after release from customs (sometimes a week) so no value for money at all

generally it takes 6 days to reach india. as i saw in tracking

another 7 days for customs clearance , may vary till months if you dont submit invoices

another 5 days to home

total expenses 40usd priority + customs + item value

STEALING as the staff customs admitted itself, is now a profession at india customs

the PAIN i have been through those 2 parcels , better not ask details as it will refresh my memory.

cost was 6000 of 1st and 10,000 of 2nd parcel

Well Just An Other Way of Making Money Guess( No Offence).Well The Parcels of Priority and Express Shipments When will be in Transit i think Express will be a bit fast but when they are dispatched to India then Even a Express Parcel will be become like Registered Airmail only and it will take time.If you see in India Sometimes if we are sending a latter to Someone inside India then if you use speedpost and Some other Persons Use Registered Post then Sometimes Registered Post which has Lower Charges than Speedpost may Reach sooner than Speedpost It Really Happens.

Aman.

yes you are correct on this one, priority mail express intl is well known EMS service that is handled more faster in both countries. the fact that its express in nature and name 'EMS' only makes it 10usd expensive than parcel service.

even i would recommend

usa parcels (only) attract huge customs duty.

i would rather urge you to consider some other option as the HUGE amount of money paid by us to customs , isnt worth the service they provide

maybe you can buy lots of other value for money goods than paying them customs


as chinese EMS are 25-30 usd only, same goes for singapore post EMS

With my talks to delhi customs officer i remember singapore post and USPS have some parternship.

Since then i have STOPPED buying with usps.

Hope this helps !!!
