Quote from: CrazyPilot link=topic=2626.msg25317#msg25317
Why not ask someone u know from post office itself. Or u can place a dummy order not more than 10$ to get the idea how things work there?

If the $10 item is too small, E-bay guys would put it in an envelope (unregisterred post) and it would either come without any customs hassle/ duties or get lost (post man/port guys fleecing it)

Best bet is try $2.99/100g package from Hobby King. They send such small packets as small box ( Oxford Mini Dictionary size) which would be a good dress rehearsal/Reece how things would go.

Here is what i do when my parcel is detained. my first question to them always is " WHY HAVE U DETAINED MY ITEM?" they simply say its because of this or that. And I ask them SHOW ME IN WRITING AND GIVE A COPY TO MEĒ. Believe me i have never asked a third question. Try this next time if ur parcel is held up. If they send u a letter stating that u need this or that permission then send them a letter back and ask "please give me a copy of order or policy under which i am required to produce the permission u r asking for because for all I know I donít require any such permission?" All u need to do is ask them to give it in writing and under which policy? Its their job to show u the rule/policy by which they r holding any item. They will never give anything in writing. If they give it to u in writing and u cant handle it further then contact me on PM . But I sincerely hope u wont need to PM me.  I am giving my secret cuz we really need to do something about this and I am fed up. Also note be polite but firm when talking to custom @******s.

Strong words ! 

The standard "give it to me in writing" may work many times, but what if they refuse to do that, and ask you to leave ?

Thats why I wrote in the end BE POLITE BUT FIRM. You should talk with confidence and look like you know what you are talking about. Do your homework before going there. BTW they can not ask you to leave without answering you. If they do go to their immediate higher authority and explain the situation to him. A better thing will be to get befriended with a lawyer and take him along. Also all this circus is the main reason I never proceed further in getting RC rules in India cleared up.

If you have transferred the funds just the previous day, you owe it to them to dispatch the material in a reasonable time. The information you are seeking should, in fairness,  have been asked for before you placed your order.

Hey! Hold your horses! My post was generic and not, in any way, directed at "why didn't you ask ME  first" !!

You are more than welcome for help, now, and in future.

Hey the seller is a very nice person.  I have asked him a million questions about prices and his reply was prompt and patient. No buying experience though Smiley He has been on the forum for a long time and many are satisfied with his service. Don't worry Smiley

So far, it has looked like the money is as safe with this seller as you keeping it your bank account.

This should be further consolation :

In my experience duty is charged if the total is 10,000 inr or more. Also I use aramex shop and ship. This way I'm sure my item will reach me in 5 days. And I get tracking updates.
