    My first time importing from Germany. It's a big relief to read what you shared...whew...I just have to wait for their queuing window to close...

    May I ask...what happens when the parcel arrives in Singapore and passed along to SingPost. How does SingPost contact you to complete the GST settlement? Is it via call or email or paper mail?

    Another question, the tracking number is not visible in SingPost at the moment. Will it be visible only after SingPost has taken possession of the parcel, and scanned it into their system?

    getting hold for GST payment is a hit or miss thing @ SingPost.
    i had a $2000 watch sent from Germany before. Germany side logistic was handled by DHL, local handling by SingPost. never got GST tabbed.

  • I ordered an Onkyo av amp from Germany some years ago cos no silver finish was available in sg. Same, DHL to Singpost. When the amp came nobody was home so I have to collect from the PO which I did. Staff forgot to ask me pay GST. Came to my house to collect the next day 😁

  • Box1 arrived today. I wasn’t home, postman ask to leave at doorstep, I said okay. So nice of him.

    GST settlement also very smooth. I am pleasantly surprised & impressed! When parcel arrives, I get an alert on SingPost app. And I also saw email notice. I used SingPost app to pay GST. Can use CC, very convenient. After GST payment, the parcel goes through the local delivery process. Can track on the SingPost app only from the moment the parcel arrives in SG and got scanned into their system.

    Box2 still in Frankfurt 😅

  • When opening the outer box, I was a little worried coz it looked bashed in.

    Then when I reached the inner (main) box, one side of the box was damp.

    Thankfully everything inside was intact & dry.

    Hooked up the single speaker, held my breath when I switched it on. Phew…power on properly.

    😅
