    Bago lang yata yang mga computations na yan, I purchased 3 stepper motors 3 yrs ago via Fedex and I only paid Php500.00 each as additional charge. 1 stepper motor cost $60 and weighs 1kg. when the packaged arrived, 1500.00 lang ang nabayaran ko.

    Now reading all these. I’m pretty scared. I have a package that just arrived Philippines yesterday morning, I am tracking it. Fedex din. Probably it’ll be delivered tomorrow or next day. It was all the way from cali. Declared value is $800 it is galaxy note 3 brand new and some chocolates. Weighing 10 lbs. Ung excitement ko nawala kinakabahan ako. :(

    Well it is indeed a lesson learned not to forget. I paid P1,947 last feb 28, 2014 from custom duties for a pair of binocular that I get it free from earned airline miles. The package delivered via UPS from Germany.

    I came accross to this forum looking for answer on this ridiculous custom taxes, knowing I am not alone. Sad
