S&S has a new design for the website. Also, they changed their rate a bit for the USA.

I saved the old rate to compare them to the new ones. Keep in mind that I have S&S Flex Membership, so you will get the best shipping fees.

Hmm, around 25$/kg
I guess eve have now better shipping fees rates, maybe?

They are the same now. I didn't use eve before and I don't know their fees, but I think S&S is faster.

Hi.

As many of you know, Amazon charges you extra taxes on your purchases.
According to an article, you can message Amazon with the information that your goods are shipped outside of the U.S. and they will refund the taxes.

is that right?

Yes that's correct.
You'll pay the taxes first, no way around that.

And once you receive the shipment, you need to send them all shipment details like the invoice, tracking number, shipping label etc...
Then they will refund you as Amazon credit.

I wish I had known that a long time ago. That's something I should do every time and for every item, right?

So what would I send them specifically?

Hello everyone,

A friend of mine wants to ship a small Bose portable speaker from the to US to Lebanon. (He already shipped it to a friend's house but this person will not be coming to Lebanon anytime soon).

Any recommended shipping service? (I have no idea whether ShopandShip would work in this case, since the speaker has already been shipped)

Thanks

Yes shopandship would work, his friend should ship it to shopandship usa address and I find their fees very reasonable and quick!
It is important to note that if you’re gonna use it for >3 times, consider flex, its 25$ but it will save you tons of money on the long run as you pay per 100g instead of per 500.
