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

Free Amazon shipping to Israel
« on: November 11, 2019, 07:15:53 AM »
$49 minimum. No tax, so it comes out cheaper than shipping to the states for me.
Not every product but the majority that I tried.

Keep it under $75 to avoid import tax

Doesn't Amazon guarantee it's the max you'll pay, or is that an exception?

You’d only have to wait until the package gets shipped then. Any data points though? I know that importing Amazon to the US works like this depending on the carrier, for example FedEx wanted to bill me whereas DHL has delivered consolidated shipments with totals over the limit. However, in the case of FedEx Amazon took care of it after I called and explained the situation. Now I wonder if any packages coming from Amazon into Israel are assumed to be okay tax-wise or if they are checked.

Have you actually had this happen? Never happened for me
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Thanks, makes sense because Amazon can’t charge more, but the carrier can collect for the country.

According to the article, this is a direct result of AliExpress (and others) who are having their 11/11 sale.

I'd venture a guess that this Amazon deal dies somewhere between 11/13 and 11/15

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

Is the home delivery with Israel postal service? Or another carrier? Post offices in some places in Israel are notorious for losing/stealing your packages
