Good night, Habr!


I decided to order two Amazon Kindle 3 for $ 139 (278$ ~ 8500 rubles) on Amazon via Shipito. (I'm from Russia, from the provinces of Siberia, Ukrainians envy)


They say that the fastest delivery is via USPS Express Mail.

But also heard that the tax on such a delivery method is taxable if the order amount over 5,000 rubles, or confused with something?


What do you say, what method to choose?

USPS Priority Mail (also not clear, at what here the amount of tax: 5000 or 30000?), Express Mail USPS or Shipito Airmail?

Added: Ordered two pieces. In shipito put Express by default. Wait.

in theory, anything above 1,000 euros is subject to tax

Know what courier tipo UPS / FedEx have a smaller limit, there are about 200 bucks.

Better to order via Priority, now EMS (usps express) is not very good reputation, the only plus delivery to you personally.

Need to order via EMS if you order 1 thing, then do customs clearance is not necessary. I recommend not to brake with the order delay, they are hefty.
Deliver to hand, but did not warn of the impending delivery. Love to come to the middle of the day and was surprised that no one's home (in Moscow so)

Ordered recently a B&N Nook with shipping via USPS Express (also live in Siberia). Came in exactly 2 weeks, which I was pleasantly surprised.
Now the maximum cost of the imported goods, no tax is 1000 euros per month. But there is a caveat — the goods must be for personal use. If the customs officer will calculate the shipment two identical devices a sign that you are going to resell them, you will have to pay the tax.
Do not use UPS/FedEx for delivery elektorniki, because they have a very strange internal rules by which a few of my parcels was sent back from Moscow. For example, FedEx is refusing to import the phones and goods worth >200$. And it turned out that when my package with the phone was already in Moscow

But the parcel with the EMS I have is that the duck which got stuck on the Export. Import does not appear for 5 days. And truth be told that EMS recently schools.

don't worry, I'm also from Siberia, and more than hundreds of goods in a month comes and a month is 200-300 T. R. goes through PayPal, and the custom didn't ask anything :)
