I shipped an iPad from the u.s., the package came empty, with attached libanpost letter saying that the customs found the package to be empty upon inspection. I won't be ordering anything else from abroad.

Oh god, from where did you order it?

You can always file a claim if you bought it from amazon

Ordered on eBay from a 100% feedback with over 8k transactions, had some money on paypal from earlier days.
I’ll be proceeding in three steps to try retrieve my money.
1- Contact the seller and try to get a refund, as the package is insured.
2-if this doesn’t work I will contact eBay.
3- My last resort will be contacting paypal.

Hello guys,

Any idea how to get things from Dubai? I see clothes are very cheap. I don't have an address there, how can I ship them somewhere to Dubai or UAE and then get them to Lebanon?

Thanks!

Guys I can help bring stuff from Amazon (delivers to Dubai), then bring it through luggage when I travel to Lebanon. Might ask for a fee depending on the size of the item, weight, and difficulty of handling. This is not a business, it's just a favor I do exclusively for the Lebgeeks community members.

Hey guys, if a family member I have in the UK ships me electronics (through dhl/aramex/libanpost) like laptop + phone + ps4 when it arrives to customs here in Lebanon will they ask for its price and force me to pay taxes on it or will it just go through since its not a sale?

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

Hello,
Does anyone tried EMS shipping in AliExpress?
I have selected this delivery option as I needed a spare part in a rush for an extra $50.
It has been 5 days since I made the order and still no updates; the order still show as processing.
When you select EMS as the delivery option, it says that you won't have tracking options...So is it normal that my order stays at the processing state? and when should I expect it to arrive? (EMS shows a delivery of 5-17 days)

Yeah I have an item that arrived on the 9th of April but hasn't entered customs yet. And next week is a holiday so probably won't get it until next month.

They diverted all packages going to Metn-Jdeideh to Metn-Furn el Chebak and they basically are running very low on postal men
