Any experience with DHL from china? I have ordered a car part from alibaba and shipping the seller said is DHL. Total item cost including shipping is 150$. Any idea on duty to expect? As i guess DHL will always levy duty unlike indiapost.
Assume atleast 40 to 50 percent customs and gst. Also dhl is pathetic with custom clearance but u will get package fast.

50% duty is gonna bankrupt me.
It depends on the declared value... I bought android based car audio player and it was shipped using DHL. But seller declared as car monitor with a value of 20 USD :D. Total amount paid was 1278.

That's 100% duty charged.

Yes, and their own handling charges as well.
be ready for a surprising bill.

I still dont understand why the sudden insufficient address thing is started? What the customs or post mean by this exactly?
We all are using same address for years on Ae unless you update.
My address is mentioned in such a detail with landmarks and markings that even a brain hammeriage or mental person will locate it easily.
happens when postman is not able to deliver.
He has to show some reason for non-delivery .
Officially, postmen are supposed to deliver articles the same day they get them in hand.
Not to worry, unless its marked RTO (Return to Origin).

Congrats on getting looted! Should have selected seller with cheaper shipping options.
On alibaba there is no option to select shipping. Anyway i have asked seller to undervalue item to 40$. Hope he complies.

Received my parcel at 23/02/2019 and customs duty paid 1792/-. Declared Value 41.67 Euro originated from Belgium - Item is a Chinese Andriod Tablet (Wi-Fi Only). Looks like duty charged according to declare value not the invoice, Didn't understand why they did the 'Missing Invoice' delay/complication....Unless they are collecting data for a record to use in future.

All screenshot (Tracking & Shipping/Duty Label are below)

Guys my DHL packet has arrived in delhi. Got an email to upload kyc, on doing so this message has come. What code do i select ???? I made a mistake not thinking of the high duties. 50% duties will make my product price unfeasible. I should have settled for the lower version product on aliexpress now i think.
