Comment on Customs & Taxes on a Parcel Sent from China to You by Yewls.
I had recently ordered 3x items from Taobao for the first time. Have set it for consolidated shipping by sea and paid the appropriate shipping fee. Then I received a text message on my mobile advising that my purchase exceeds the tax exemption amount. I went back into Taobao to see how I can pay the tax but noted that my goods are marked as “Waiting For Warehouse To Pick” and has been on that status for a few days now. Has the goods been placed on hold and if so, where do I go to make appropriate payments for the taxes?
