@JamesHolden25 Honestly I am not sure how legit the item is, but to me it doesn't make much sense to order something like this especially with shipping restrictions for such items. Might just end up paying a lot more for a mediocre product.
Yep, I see that Buyandship increased prices, but still it isn't that bad. They also applied a 5$ credit to my account as part of some promotion, I am guessing to compensate for the price hike at least during the initial days.
I'm planning to order 2 parts for my 6.5 yr Dell Latitude E5540 laptop from parts-people.com. The total value of the 2 parts is around 46 usd. They ship to India via fedex and the shipping charges are around 40 usd additional.
I couldn't find the above parts anywhere else. Hence planning to order them from US online. Will there be any customs duty on the parts worth 46 usd or will the customs duty be levied on total 86 usd including shipping. If so, what will be the approx duty. Thanks in advance.
Buyandship is like any freight forwarder, you get the item shipped to their local warehouse and then they forward it to the final destination. Usually its much cheaper than shipping it directly from the supplier.
For 3 lbs, Buyandship would charge around 20 USD (after including the signup credit). You'd probably have to pay 5 USD or so to get the item shipped to their US warehouse from the seller. Another advantage with Buyandship is that, you can declare the price as you'd like ()
Depends on how the seller invoices the item. If the invoice includes shipping cost, then yes the 41% would be on the total. If the invoice includes only item cost ie FOB, then 20% of the item cost is added as insurance and freight charges for customs calculation. So it can be either 55 USD or 85 USD.
