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

I have an Amazon order being delivered by GCX. They sent me an email asking be to provide a TZ for customs clearance. Amazon already took that and GCX doesn't accept a passport number.

Safe to ignore?

If you have a Bituach Leumi number, that should work as a Teudat Zehut.

does anyone know if splitting an order - making one order and sending different items to different recipients will have a problem with the over $75 rule?

Different recipients ? Meaning to different people ?
If yes, it's different packages/envelopes  .. so of course you will not have any problem ..

Why is there such a disconnect between posters in this thread and commenters here?

Not really. I think you just need to point out that you need to put an Israeli number on file, and correct the mistake that Israel Post is only delivering from local companies, when in fact they are handling many (perhaps most) of the imports, too.

According to the website of the Israeli Treasury (משרד האוצר) they can combine it and consider it as one order.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

:shrug: Maybe people don't have their phone number in their order? Or they don't answer when called? Or they choose a pickup point when asked for one?

Yes, you can. On the top right of the "Select A Shipping Address" page, there is an option to ship to multiple addresses.

As for why you would want to, if I want to buy two items that each cost $40. each one separately will not get free shipping, and together will be charged 17% Vat. If I can send each of them to separate people I save 17%.

I've been ordering quite a lot and wait a day between orders. All have been thru doar delivered to my door albeit late. But I do get it. And all orders have been under $75 but shipping can sometimes be $100 and haven't had an issue when it says on the box $175 value.
