This happens a lot when they feel suspicious about your package
Ask your seller for e-invoice n send them
You will be charged more than usual custom charges this time
Good luck . I am expecting 80-100$ if you send them 200$ invoice

Also always choose UPS/DHL/FEDEX only for international purchase more than 100$. They will take care of the customs clearance.

Did you asked seller to reduce price and ship and if yes than you may land in trouble since they may ask you to provide bank statement.
If not ask seller as well as ask aliexpress customer care to help you out since you are not at fault.

Now that you have paid 14k to aliexpress visit custom office and request them that it was not your fault as to why invoice was lower. Ask them what is the solution since you are innocent https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif
Try to avoid penalty if you can.

Also you may ask sellers to put low amount in invoice. But not too low. They will do it for you.
Example:-
If you buying a item which costs 500$ , but low quality of that item is also available for 150$ ,then you may ask the seller to put 150~200$ in invoice.

This is little risky but always worked for me(8/8 times). Key is just play safe.Don’t put too low in amount.
(EDIT:- This only works if you use UPS/DHL/FEDEX who will take care of customs for you).

First thing you have to do is ask the seller about the amount on the invoice.

Customs department is not that foolish to just go by valuation declared. Irrespective of what you declare they have their own valuations for most major components and approximate estimates for other category of products. You have to pay the customs duty as charged by them to get your product now, you will get to know the exact amount later.

Even if you genuinely get the product at a genuine discount most times you end up paying the customs duty on the actual price itself.

My location don’t have UPS/DHL/FEDEX.
All my Order from Aliexpress (below 50$) are shipped with SG Post, China Post, Aliexpress Standard never tried UPS/DHL/FEDEX and all the packages are delivered via India Post.
Do you think packages above 100$ shipped via UPS/DHL/FEDEX (if it clears customs) will be delivered via India Post as well?

Nothing like that, it’s all random. I get many parcels from abroad and there is no certain pattern to know when you have to pay customs and how much.

But if your package gets held up then irrespective of the declared valuation you end up paying customs duty on actual value.

If you have a genuine looking invoice for $101 then try sending in that itself, who knows, they might actually get convinced.

for all the Future international buyers Do not act smart over our customs department ,i ordered Superlux 668B for 30$ from gearbest and invoice had price of 15$ ,so i thought i would be get custom tax for the 15$ product right? No!!! they have opened the product and checked the bill for the product name(since package quoted general headphone) and checked the current price of the headset and charged me according to that,problem is current price is way higher then what i brought.i received the product with Chennai cover and bill outside the headphone box.

Maybe they spare orders under 5k range~. 203 USD is like 15K!

1. For OP, mail them the required, they will calculate the tax and you will have to pay it to the mail man.
2. If you choose DHL/FEDEX or any other private shipping company they will force pay the duty calculated according to the slab i.e, you pay duty 100% of time. They won’t take risk for you. Only Amazon.com refunds when no duty is levied.
3. Customs is weird dept. they sometimes charge 30% on the same item and sometimes 50%. Depends on their mood and office. Delhi office is most lenient, Bangalore most strict.
4. I have seen someone buying speakers worth $3000 and didn’t pay a single rupee and sometimes they put duty on $20 item. Bhagwan maalick hai.
5. One time a guy went to the customs office in Kolkatta to argue about the duty they imposed was way higher than it should. The officer opened google and searched the item and charged duty on the highest MRP he could find.
6. Charges have increased now and after GST you have to pay Customs+GST now.

Send them invoice copy of declare value (not original value) with letter that this is gift from your relative/friends and hence you have not paid any thing for this. Also mention in letter that declare value is only for custom & insurance purposes and no payment involved. (Do not send your bank statement or payment proof). This will work

Best of luck
