Post Time to deliver
on: May 19, 2017, 14:54

Hi, last month I shipped a package from Italy to China with Poste Italiane.
Here is the tracking number: CP047173281IT
As I can see from tracking was arrived yesterday in China and today was cleared.
Now my question is: how can I know if the recipient need to pay customs duty? It's a pair of shoes, I have declared it 18$.
Time to reach Putian (city of the recipient)? Now is at Beijing..
Waiting your kindly reply 😀

According to China Law, parcel value under RMB50(USD7.00) no need pay tax. However, it really depends on the import customs officer. In big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, customs officers are too busy to collect those small money, so if your receiver is in those cities, your receiver has good chance to escape duty. But in small cities like Putian, it is hard too say. It is very likely to be taxed.

Beijing to Putian normally take about one week. If you pay me US$50 service fee, I will call for you, but this is higher than the duty cost.
