State (postal services): USPS (USA), Royal Mail (UK), Deutsche Post (Germany), Post of Russia


USPS

This is one organization, but you can send through it in many ways.

The most common USPS services are:
Quote:

- USPS Priority mail - delivery time: 1-2 weeks. a minimum of 4 days. BUT! since the parcel through Priority Mail after customs arrives at the Post of Russia - parcels by this service last longer in Russia than go from abroad. the total travel time without customs from America is 14-23 days. track the movement of goods is possible through a special service USPS in the territory of America, and through a similar service of the Russian Post in Russia;
- USPS Express mail international (EMS) - the most expensive of reasonable, but the most sane service. depending on the state of dispatch and weather (not a joke) appears in Russia on the 2nd or 4th day. immediately gets in line at the customs. after the customs on the next day, he gets up to the courier to your address (this is about Moscow). very rarely detained at this stage for two days. by number is tracked all the way, either on the EMS website or from the operators of the Russian Post (by phone, around the clock). according to reviews - never get lost. this service in many countries is called EMS POST. in China and many "attractive" to buy countries, it is and is searched for by the name of the country and the phrase EMS (Express Mail Service) in Germany is not there, DHL;
- USPS First class mail - almost the same as USPS Priority Mail, applied to Russia (what the creators in the Priority Mail set up does not work very much in Russia - that's why it goes the same way). It will not be slower, but cheaper;
Tariffs and the time of passage of all the above-mentioned parcels from America can be viewed on the USPS website in the section "Calculate postage".

The transit deadlines are real, but do not take into account the Russian customs and the Russian "last mile" of our mail, which in all cases except USPS Express Mail leaves much to be desired. In all three cases, the tracking will be issued (the number where you can track where the package is now). All three options, after crossing the border, are transformed into the Post of Russia. EMS can bring goods to your home, in other cases you need to pick up at the post office.



Cargo transportation services (UPS, FedEx, DHL)

The parcels go for three days, but there is a nuance. All three are "cargo carriers", and not "postal service". Therefore, brought them does not fall under the preferential rules of customs clearance of postal items for individuals and must be cleared in full. That is GTD, the customs duty on the code of the goods, and then the VAT. Depending on the product code, this is usually (("product price" + "shipment price") + 15%) + VAT. The procedure for customs clearance takes 4 hours (a lot), you have to go personally to Domodedovo or Sheremetyevo.

customs value - by law this cost includes the cost of the purchase, plus the cost of cargo insurance, plus the cost of shipping the goods. The cost of the purchase is determined based on the invoice that rides sticky tape to the box.


There are three ways to determine the price at customs:
Quote:

1. on the box by the so-called invoice. In this case, experienced people say that you can specify a price that is known to be less than the maximum amount of duty-free import, by itself in the currency of the country from which the parcel is sent, and the customs will pass your stash without problems.

The universal phrase in the shop with the request to lower the invoice: "Please do not enclose any papers, advertising materials, or anything except an invoice for $ 399.95". Otherwise, they can write on the package that it costs $ 400, and inside put an estimate of $ 5,000 and prospectuses. If the shipment is lost, the seller will not receive insurance more than is written in the shipment estimate. Accordingly, you will not want to refund the amount more than the invoice was written. This explains the unwillingness of many sellers to do this. After all, if you pay through paypal, then you can demand the full amount of payment. Therefore, many large sellers in the rules write about the fact that the amount invoice they do not understate. Opinion from the audience: In one of the cases, buying an expensive bauble, I persuaded the understatement of the invoice only in this way - I offered to pay two amounts from the papal. $ 400 "for the goods", and the remaining several thousand "for services." So I deprived myself of the opportunity to demand money back and calmed the seller.

2. From the customs office, you will be notified that you need to specify the amount of the goods in any way (in case of USPS Express Mail, the dispatchers will tell you by phone), that it is certainly more than the amount of duty-free importation. For disassembly, you must bring a printout of payment and a statement in free form.
