Anyone here from the Philippines?

I just want to know how the shipping fee works, because it is surprisingly low when I select Philippines in the Country. Can I actually use my specific address without any additional charges?

It is shipped through PhilPost. You might have to claim it at your local PhilPost and pay P112. Be wary though, you might be charged at customs if it's over $200. It doesn't happen 100% of the time though. I've bought watches worth over $1000 and not get charged, but I've also bought $400 watches and got charged P5100, which I believe is the maximum amount customs can charge you, regardless of the value of your item. If you're buying an item over $200 and don't want the stress of being charged by customs, I suggest you use shippingcart.com.

Another update. As of March 2020, I learned: Tax is computed as follows: A. (Value of item + insurance) * conversion rate * duty/tariff rate (ranges from 1% up to 15%) Duty/tariff rate (Depends on what item you're importing. Can be accessed here http://finder.tariffcommission.gov.ph/ B. (Converted rate + A + 30) * 12% vat C. A + B + 30 SAMPLE: (As of Feb 2020) ITEM: Peak Design Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod A. ($599.96 + 11.09) * 50.504 * 15% = 4,629.07 B. (30860.47 + 4629.07 + 30) * 12% vat = 4,262.34 C. 4629.07 + 4262.34 + 30 = 8921.41 ** Tax will be P8921.41 + money gram fees ** Taxable amount will depend heavily on what material your item is made of. For my parcel, my item was charged with a duty rate of 15%. But I found out through this website http://finder.tariffcommission.gov.ph/ that "carbon fiber" tripods should be just 5% instead of 15%. Plastic and aluminum tripods are charged 15%. I emailed BOC and they corrected it. They reply fast to emails. In the end, instead of paying 8900, I paid 5000+

you can put your actual address, but depending on the item you bought it may not ship. for example the hd 6xx wont ship to the Philippines that's why you need freight forwarding. check the drop discussions how much is the fee for international ~ hd 6xx shipping fee outside US is $15.00 .
Is there a way to get an HD 6xx in PH?
