Topic Wiki

Would love this thread to help people not to make mistakes and prevent aggravation!
I will start

1. Always add a working contact Israeli number starting with +972/
2. Always make sure to add your Passport/ת''ז ontime within First day or 2 of your order if not your order will be canceled.
3. Never put in a pickup destination if you don`t want to go pick it up and wait the courier must bring it to your door. (do not answer the Text/Email asking you where to drop off)
4. If your order doesn't come ontime you could get a Credit for late timing try chating.
5. Never exceed the value of $75.00
6. make sure you have $49.00 of eligible items
7. Beware that if you send a few packages close together, they may still charge you TAX/VAT so it is best to wait a few days in between or try getting them different dates or different couriers, or send one on your name and one on your wifes or neighbors. Or to a family member, needs to be over the age of 18
8. You can get subscribe and save discounts (5%) on your first order, but you can't actually subscribe and save.
9. There are 2 types of zip codes use the 7 digit that starts with a "9"

Here is a list of Couriers that ship with Amazon to Israel

Interesting. I've been ordering from the book depository for about a year now and always went thru the post office.
My local post office has started outsourcing package pickup to local stores. They are either incompetent or straight up ganavim :(

How about a few packages but each to a different child's name

It would go by the id for customs in the Amazon account.

Seems like you can put in different IDs for different orders. Any reason to assume they wouldn't use that?

When do I need to pay tax on personal imports?
Tax exempt: when the value of the products (apart from alcohol and tobacco) in the same shipment do not exceed US$ 75. The cost of shipping and insurance are not factored in the tax, and they are calculated separately from the cost of the product.
Payment of VAT and purchase tax (as applicable) - when the value of the products in the same shipment range from US$ 75 to US$ 500. The check to determine whether the goods are subject to tax is based on the value of the goods only, provided that it is separate from the cost of shipping and insurance. However, when tax does apply, the tax cost is calculated on the basis of the product's value plus shipping and insurance fees.
Payment of VAT, customs duties and purchase tax (as applicable): when the value of the products in the same shipment range from US$ 500 to US$ 1000. The tax cost is calculated on the basis of the value of the package plus shipping and insurance fees
Payment of VAT, customs duties and purchase tax (as applicable) as per commercial imports: for shipments of tobacco and alcohol products or when the value of the products in the same shipment exceeds US$ 1000.
We have summarized the import taxes for you in the following table:


The small print
  Two or more packages sent from the same supplier to the same customer within 72 hours will be considered one shipment that was split, and import taxes will be calculated on the basis of the total value of all the packages combined.
Shipping and insurance costs are added to the value of the product for tax purposes, and the taxes are calculated for them as well.
 

Determining the value of a shipment
Customs regulations in Israel define the worth of a personal import as the sum total paid for the product ordered plus the related services (insurance and shipping fees).


VAT and the taxes payable on shipments are calculated by Customs on a CIF basis.
In calculating the cost for customs purposes (CIF), three details are taken into account:

The product Cost
Insurance
Cost of transportation (Freight)
can anyone explain how this would apply? (https://www.gov.il/en/departments/guides/personal_import?chapterIndex=3)

A few data points on my five orders (so far)
Free shipping is calculated before any discounts
You can get subscribe and save discounts on your first order, but you can't actually subscribe and save
Delivery for all my packages have been to my door (even from the doar)
Ignore all messages asking you to select a pickup point, they are just trying to save money but they will deliver to your door
Also ignore if they ask you to come down to their car to get the package, they are required to bring it to you
Delivery times have been as little as a week and as much as 2
They do clear customs on shabbos :(
They are clearly trying out different delivery options, with all my orders being fulfilled by different companies

I still don't see how this can last. They shipped my $8 remote control car in it's own package. Not sure how that can be a moneymaker. I still think they are seeing what the demand is like and will open a warehouse here

Everyone is saying it doesn't make sense financially to open a warehouse here, and they'll never do it. Why else would they offer this promo?

Are you saying they are doing this to see how much people would use them?
I'm not who you think I am.

https://www.dansdeals.com/shopping-deals/amazon/get-30-boxes-kleenex-tissues-24-go-travel-packs-32-77-shipped-amazon/
These all ship to Israel free
As do some of the items here (garbage bags, Ziploc, etc.)
https://www.dansdeals.com/shopping-deals/amazon/15-off-50-home-products-amazon-save-big-tide-bounty-charmin-finish/

@Dan any chance you can include in your Amazon deals whether they ship free to Israel?

Based on IP's? Some people use VPN's and such so that could skew the results in favor of the U.S

most ppl dont use VPN always only when needed because VPN slows down the internet

Have you actually had this happen? Never happened for me
Had it with Ali Express my wife ordered for my Israeli baby sitter a few packages and they didn`t want to release it until it went to 2 post offices
