Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

00000, just put Lebanon - beirut on the delivery address.

if however it is super important, find a company that has a website and offices next to where you live, go to their website on the contact us page and extract their postal code, since it's different for every region of beirut

Hello everyone

As you are shipping through Libanpost. What  " zip/postal code " should I use for my items to be delivered in Beirut?

I will receive a Payoneer card and they ask for the zip/postal code in the address, so I didn't find anything about that in Libanpost website.

Thanks in advance

You may need one or not, and I don't even know if they are being used any more---try to find you closest location and give it a go

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

days where aliexpress stuff were let through are over, basically they have this policy to retain everything from china for a few weeks, people get sick, and they order less.
Gearbest however, uses a courier called NL pora(dutch company), which basically makes it look like it's coming from Holland while in reality it's coming from china, these packages take <1 month.

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Honestly, our customs and libanpost are not that bad, compared to other countries...
However, the real reason in my opinion is that libanpost and the customs are angry with aliexpress (because the customs have more work to do, and libanpost is internationally obliged to deliver your stuff for free) and not the merchants!

Well if they don't take 20-25% customs on every single order with private courier then people will start to buy from amazon instead of aliexpress, but middle age laws will not be changed soon

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I was checking AE and found some laptops by Hasee in the featured brand section.
the shipping is set for 16$ through DHL. The one I liked is for 690$.
will I be screwed by customs if I go for it? and any idea about the brand itself? thanks

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I wouldn't risk dhl. They will end up taking nothing or at least 100-200 dollars extra. It's like gambling
Maybe ask the seller if they could use aramex or express airmail?

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

expect to pay customs with aramex, but dhl is another story(greedy exorbitant taxes: as per many reviews in the thread 'shipping from a broad experience'.
