Default Re: Overseas Shopping Customs Fee

Quote Eric View Post
i am pretty sure (not 100% though) that there is a tax on clothes if you are shipping in more than 100USD worth of clothes. the tax is steep, too. 25% i think.

they really like it when the package comes straight from the place you ordered it from. that way all the price information is easily accessible. i'd say if your shipping a lot of clothes to korea and want to skirt around the tax, get someone to mail it to you and have them keep the value on the box below 100 USD.

again, things might have changed so trust my answer at your own risk

Hi Again Eric The only problem with having people mail your clothes is that you can't obtain insurance on your clothing in event it is not received and you wish to replace it. I think it is better to pay the tax. I don't want to loose my good suits or suede slacks. Then again, if you are a size 12 or under the fashions in Korea are great.
