I ordered 6 Orders on 18 Jul 2020
Which was supposed to deliver last on 18 Aug 2020 deadline
All are shipped through same network carrier ‘Cainiao Super economy network goods www.global.caini...om
All has shipment tracking numbers.
All are showing status ’Accepted by last mile courier arrived destination country on 31 July 2020’ I do not have any courier shipping partner information in India. I do not know what to do now. Will it get delivered by Indian postal mail or private courier company? Shall I contact my local postman/ postoffice? Shall I wait for call back?Its been 1 month from the order date. Are those in customs now? Do I need to contact seller? Or I can relax and wait more 45 days?

Corrupt customs officials keep many products for themselves / family, you can’t get these back if that’s the case.

It depends on the “mood” of the custom official when they receive/verify/x-ray your package at the port.

1 month delivery deadline? Or you mean estimated delivery date?
Even before corona, many of these non-traceable shipments used to either get lost or take around 60days to get delivered

Since these are all non-trackable shipments, Calling your postman or reaching out to nearest PO is worthless grinning
So the best thing you can do right now is to wait…ask the seller to extend the delivery deadline further (if it’s going to cross 60days) & if you still don’t get delivery…then obviously open a claim & ger refund

PS: Got two packages delivered (Sing Post & China Post) in June & July (Shipped in May & June)

There is no such thing as “No customs for <5K”
That gift rule..no longer exists now
But if the package size is small, you could get lucky

Even low-value products? For non-electronic items too?

Which earphone? Please suggest decent ones on Aliexpress.

I actually need a cheap-ass but good quality microphone/video calls over-the-ear headphone with mic.

Please specify the type and budget.
In my case, I bought tws earbuds for my parents. Tested them, they’re pretty amazing. Sound’s awesome, bass is great, calling is alright too, noise cancellation is pretty good and most importantly, no latency period.

I have boat 255f and boat rockerz 400 and there’s always a lag in audio while playing pubg when connected through Bluetooth. But in these, no lag at all. I’ll pm you product link as soon as I get home. Share your requirements.

If a friend couriers stuff from US personally – can it be still taxed?

Yes ! Correct ! If no IE code, flat 40% penalty on declared value ! Long back, I ordered by USPS mail an order worth 49000/- The tracking data showed address of the last point reached (landing port in Mumbai). Send a written letter by post at that address on official letterhead mentioning – 1. Item for personal use. 2. Item not for resale. 3. IE code not required for personal use items. 4. Paid Invoice of online purchase declaring value of goods in the parcel mail. 5. Printed description of the item present inside the mail parcel. Within a week received a call from Customs officer asking to pay a penalty of Rs. 23000/- including all fees & taxes to release the item. 3 days later received a call from nearest post office informing arrival of a mail parcel and about payment within 24 hours else item would be returned. Went ! Paid ! Bought home ! Nice packing !

Most low value/small packages especially from china (Regular post) ..they don’t get charged
If u get unlucky & they assume that the seller undervalued the shipment..then the penalty charges will be high (else 45%+ of the value you declare or they assume)

PS: ~10 shipments delivered (two after June 2020) from china/hk since Nov 2019 & I haven’t paid extra customs for any order (Highest declared amount by the seller is 20$)

Forget about customs & packages getting stuck then
Hopefully you get the order (if the PostMan in your locality is reliable..some are thieves*)

PS: Where i live, PostMan just dumps these non-trackable shipments in the ground floor, no calls nothing (Lost couple of packages this way)…No issues with registered posts which requires signature

The Right Question should be like
What you can’t get from AliExpress?

The answer in my case would be..“Anything i need that’s not available here”

PS: Got a lot of Camera, PC/LaptopSpares/Gear like WIFI Cards, dongles, Lighting accessories during sale days for pretty cheap

That goes without saying when tracking ID is given.. laughing

But problm is (may be was) that for free copies, any tracking ID isn’t given.. Don’t know about the paid request though.

But since many mentioned about loss of parcels and 40% customs (in some post read 70% as well).. wouldn’t that kill any deals provided??
