had a fair few run-ins with customs in my time. for clothes I rarely find it is worth the hassle. especially if the clothes are brand new etc. bike parts is a different story. especially if they are from china. can mark them down super low

If dealing with proxy sometimes it works well to send the 1st payment to buy the product then a 2nd payment later (with description on the payment) for fees and shipping, declare the latter then if they ask for proof you can send them the paypal payment as proof. Could be a bit difficult if buying direct but works well on proxy services should you ever run in to customs.

Hi all. Anyone ordered from Amazon Japan before? I've got my eye on another Loopwheeler sweater and am not sure what the process/likely import fees will be.

I don't know if it's similar to the US Amazon but when I ordered something from there it charged me an Import Fees Deposit (around $8 ) as part of an estimated price. That estimate turned out to be accurate and was what I was charged.
