Customs duties and additional fees for an Amazon in order

Anyone who orders something from Amazon.in and has it delivered to Germany must expect additional fees. On the one hand there are the costs for the service of Indian mailbox. On the other hand, the customer has to be prepared to pay customs duties in the form of import sales tax (Wiki: What is import sales tax?).

  • Order value under 22 euros: There are no customs duties to be paid. If necessary, however, the customs office can request proof of an invoice or proof of payment.
  • Order value 22 to 150 euros: Import sales tax in the amount of the value added tax applicable in this country (= 19 percent) must be paid.
  • Orders over 150 euros: In addition to the import sales tax of 19 percent, additional customs duties must be paid. How high these are depends on the product type.

Duties and Taxes

Conclusion

It can be said that ordering from Amazon.in is not entirely unproblematic for German customers. Amazon India only sends the shipments domestically. As a result, delivery to Germany is not possible. Instead, the customer has to go through an external service provider such as Indianmailbox.

In addition to the customs fees, which are due anyway, there are not inconsiderable additional costs. As an Amazon customer in Germany, you should think twice about whether the time and financial investment is really worth it. It should also be noted that many of the products offered on Amazon come from Indian third-party providers. Few products are sold directly from Amazon India.
