That you have to pay customs happens exactly in one case guaranteed and that & APOs; s when you order by DHL express, because then the things go over a direct airline from Hong Kong to Leipzig and there DHL chases everything through customs. With any other shipping method, it may happen that the shipments are customs duty, but it doesn & APOs; t have to. In addition, it should also be said that you often have to confirm in large quantities Fittingen that you are not acting commercially, otherwise you have to specify another number (your EORI [must be applied for]). You also need this if you have something more often (more than twelve times a year) customs, even if you act privately. Experience has shown that the confirmation of your non-commercial activity is without form, i.e. & quot; I confirm to buy these parts for own use. & quot; furthermore, it is always worth asking for discounts from Aliexpress dealers. Especially with larger orders it is worth it, because you often get a & quot; better & quot; shipping for free and also discount on the orders.The whole process is so that you fill your shopping cart and take a screenshot and then send it to the store operator (at least with FormulaMod this works like this). Of course you should have written kindly before. You then get an offer, ordered without paying, they adjust the price and shipping and you pay. If you still have any questions, I & APOs; m available via PN or Threema (by prior arrangement) and I & APOs; m happy to help.
