Some questions about Amazon international shipment.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So, Im 13 years old, looking forward to become an audiophile, but, there are some problems, i live in Mexico and i have to pay for my headphones.

Searching for good headphones in Mexico is difficult and pricey (once i had to pay 120$ to get a pair klipsch s4). The headphones i want at the moment are the v-moda crossfade lp (in Mexico they are around 300$) and i also want the fiio e6  amp, now, my question is, can amazon send the heaphones directly to my house? (i´ll use my brother credit card) and also, will customs charge me taxes for a 128$ package?

Any kind of help will be appreciated.

You should basically ask this to Amazon customer care.

Anyway Amazon now have AmazonGlobal where in they ship to international destinations. They have the option to pre-pay the customs duty (may be not for all destinations)
Not all items can be shipped under AmazonGlobal.
When you search for any product, there is a filter on the left side under 'International Shipping' that allows you to show only AmazonGlobal eligible products.
The shipping expenses are known only when you add to the cart and checkout, but prior to payment.

Amazon is extremely good with customer service. When I ordered goods through AmazonGlobal, they reimbursed the pre-paid duty (which apparently was not charged by local customs) after about a month. When I had a defective equipment, they immediately accepted to replace the equipment at their expenses and reimburse me the two way courier charges + any import duty.

Amazon is Amazing!

It is more than likely that the courier will pay the duty (in case Amazon do not give you the option to pre-pay it) incurred and collect it from you at the time of delivery .
