The chinese companies from ali express and ebay etc does actually ask you if you want a forged invoice and they then set the shoe price etc to $5 or $10 value.

This wont happen from Amazon so i doh know why amazon shoppers with amazon invoices getting analized in the bamcee with a traffic cone.

They reevaluating by vaps.
Had two items, one came thru, inspected and charged at face value.
The other was inspected, re-evaluated for the non-special price (bought the item for 60USD on a flash sale, reg price is 100). I was charged duties and vat on the 100USD reevaluation. They clearly using amazon retail pricing as their guide, and not the documents provided for those that they "feel" should be worth more. I prealerted, and submitted invoices.
Oh, well. Meh

Declare as a gift and Amazon doesn't include anything but a gift card per your instruction.

Aeropost costs are very very high but, with this new foolishness from customs, their prices may be " reasonable " going forward

Amazon's flash sale these days lists the "discount" as a negative dollar amount on the invoice. It would look something like this:

Item 1: $100
Discount: -$40
Total: $60

The value of the item on the invoice is listed as $100, even if there is a discount applied after.

Honestly I do not understand what you're talking about. These are my Aeropost charges in TTD for my two most recent items. It is correct (even better than correct if I'm honest). Is the gripe against them shipping charges? How much does Websource charge per lb? Seriously, I would really like to know.

It gets even worse than that, customs are also re evaluating based on MSRP for a number of items like phones and TV etc

For the past 3 weeks all invoices have become invalid no matter how legitimate it is, I think this is supposed to be illegal? but then the law says customs have final say. This law needs to be changed, because a lot of times I buy things on Amazon on Flash Sale, or used Amazon Warehouse yet they still charging Vat on the MSRP which can be 4 times the price.

Yes we know the chinese mafia doesn't care and they will send fake invoices but the fact that those who shop on Amazon are being treated the same way as criminals says a lot about these idiots at customs.

This is just the beginning the real anal rape is coming after election when the money is devalued. Customs sharpening their Traffic Cone for we cacah0le.

Me too. I use Aeropost and I have found that the pricing is not as bad as some of what others have to pay with other skyboxes.

I think I saw a flyer indicating that if you link your Aeropost account with your PriceSmart membership, you will get further discounts. Is this legit? Can anyone confirm authenticity?

Believe that discount is applied to purchasing items using their website - https://aeropost.com/site/en

It is legit. However it is only applicable if you purchase from Aeropost website and they bring the item for you. If you send the items to the skybox address then the pricesmart discount does not apply.

The discount is small though. Like 2-3% IIRC.

Truth be told, about 5 years ago, Aeropost had an offer with Republic Bank and if you linked your credit card to the Aeropost account, you'll benefit from a flat shipping rate despite the weight of the item.

So I believe my flat rate equates to US$3.54 (or so) per pound.

That works out great for me. But honestly I avoid shipping heavy items and will only on rare occasion bring in something which weighs more than 15 lbs.

therein lies the problem.
It's hit and miss, and applied by vaps
I've only been jammed once, but I don't shop online much, a couple times every few months if that much.
For the business people, it's causing plenty issues.

It is.
I would say the last item I received I suspect I paid a lil more typically but as far as my calculations go, I always pay less so the odd time doesn't make a difference to me.

ABS?

It seems as though personal packages are being pushed thru and commercial stuff is delayed at customs. Not sure if or why this is happening.

Election gimmick to please the general public.

After elections with PNM in charge it's back to normal to please 1%
