Hi

Purchased Mi tv box on 20th july, seller mentioned price as 21$ but actual cost is 69$ now the item is stuck at Indian customs saying that “retained by customs for unspecified reason” I want to know whether I’ll get the product or not? If yes I’ll get it means how much duty I’ve to pay? Approx.

From where did you purchased.

Contact seller and ask him as to why he has shown prices as undervalued?? Ask for return

Btw how much have you paid

Please help

so many times i have got the product for the value about $70 without duty when retained by the customs. All you have to do is show them the invoice.

The tracking will say retained by customs for maximum of 40 days and minimum of 7 days. However you will be notified through post that you have to pay this much duty. if not, the status will change anytime between 7 days to 40 days saying, moving to the next post office.

Customs has to stop the goods coming from China , as they may be radioactive , or harmful in general sense https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_twisted.gif

Sometimes they hold the package for sometime may be a month before they release it
You may have to pay extra customs

In the past we have to produce original bill to get it cleared no idea about current situation
Its been a while since I purchased something from overseas

@@@[email protected]@ you have to pay custom duty for sure if your shipment is holded by customs and if shipment is packed in a carton box then surely they will open the box and custom will be charged. But incase shipment is light weight and in courier bag or polybag then they may release your shipment w/o tempering it.

Don’t worry, as you said it is only 20th July, customs unspecified reason is normal if they have doubt with the product , so expect you have to pay customs during delivery of the product 😊, and that might not be around Rs 500/- I guess,. So, please be patient, don’t get worried, wait some more days, you’ll get it and u have to pay customs in 99% of such cases
One of my friend got mi box delivery after 40 days but it isn’t sent to customs but shipping is slow

One of my other friend bought mi box, his package was strucked in customs for a week and released, he paid 381 Rs as customs duty.. So you also will get it, don’t worry
My mi box I bought on November end 2016, luckily I also hadn’t had to pay any customs 😊😊

Better go with AliExpress, model number is only mi box 3 mdz 16 ab,
Some sellers sell other version which looks like this only and not original Android tv version, it is different model..
Prefer seller with AliExpress standard shipping method
In AliExpress check which seller has most the orders, and order from them,. After ordering just message the seller that to send the order in such a way that I don’t have to pay customs like marking
as gift and undervalue item 😀, he will then mark as gift and undervalue item, so less chances to pay customs

Damn…why the hell we’ve to fear from customs we pay money and still live in fear and they have power to do anything to our products. How can we end this corruption and make everything TRANSPARENT so nobody in customs can STEAL OR do DISHONESTY ?

But u dont file tds returns which is required for every single purchase paid in forex. Every thing is online & it is quite easy for department to track non filers. Its matter of time b4 scrutiny & penalty 1lac per non-compliance is imposed on shoppers.

It’ll be good, it runs on android 6.0,
Pros:
1. Stock AndroidTV os, if isn’t like tablet /mobile Android in a tv like other boxes.
2. This comes with inbuilt chromecast and a voice remote, easy to see content
3. Amazon video is working 😊 fire stick alternative too (fire stick u can’t connect external USB drives)
I haven’t faced any much issues with it, I am very much satisfied, I paid Rs 4670 on November end I purchased it.. Received in December 3rd week without customs.

So, I’m using for chromecast + YouTube + Kodi + amazon prime video + live channels viewing via iptv 😀
