I am electronic hobbyist I do diy projects. I want to import some electronic items from AliExpress but not placing orders bcz those items may be seized or returned back to China by Indian custom. Earlier, I use to import electronics from China, never had pay to any custom duty & all the orders was delivered. But now I am little bit hesitant in importing from China.

I think our net imports or trade with China has increased since the pandemic.

However, Foreign post office method of importing goods might have become more difficult.

@Mufasa

Here the shipping status of an electronic item, ordered a month ago, costing under 50 USD, ordered through ebay.com

The item got dispatched the same day, but logistics seem to be slow moving.

You can ping here after 2 weeks, to check if it has been delivered yet, or any customs duty was levied.

Only tracked goods will be delivered. 100% chances of custom duty. Ordered a projector 6 months back. Duty is 30-35% on declared price. But I think duty has increased now. Not sure.

After pandemic flights are less and freight charges have increased 2-4 times. Hence delay in shipping or slow Shipping…..

Items under 50$ are easily passed custom without duty. I rarely import items above 50$.

Previously was a regular buyer from aliexpress, for electronic components and peripherals for trying out new things.

Haven’t tried any other sites for buying from China.

Since the aliexpress website is blocked now, decided to buy this using ebay this time.

Anyone know any shipping company which offers lowest cost need to order cosmetics in bulk to resell. Anyone have settings with customs to clear cosmetics items?

I guess shopping on ebay.com is costlier than aliexpress. Also custom duty will more likely br charged.

Depends on the shipping option..
FedEx, Aramex, DHL, UPS, EMS … – Sure shot customs (Mandatory declaration by private couriers)
Shipping via China/Sing/NL Post (eBay.com) – Same as AliExpress Standard Shipping

ebay.com is far more convenient to use than Ali anyway. Paypal is just brilliant in resolving disputes, should there be any. Need to purchase orings, will place the order from ebay. For god’s sake it’s been like 1.5 years I am waiting for some bloody key dampeners.

The shipping was free and the price was reasonable.

The same was available on amazon India, but double the price. Also the item review was good on ebay, so decided to go for that.

Will update this thread if any customs duty gets charged.

I guess they are shipping but by private courier services like FedEx, DHL, Aramex, etc. Shipping charge is 4K for 3$ items. So doesn’t make any sense importing items from China until things get normal between India and China.

No they’re not, even if the shipping to India is mentioned on product page. While checkout they show error popup “Product can’t be shipped to your location due to local conditions”.

ebay.com, banggood, gearbest etc, but price is now high on all these.
Recently I had to buy a cover for samsung tablet, I was expecting it to be 1-2 USD but minimum i found was 4.5 USD for a basic cover, So I bought it on amazon.
