      If the cost of items is just $120, do I have to pay customs duty? And what if I ask the seller to mark my item as a gift?

      Usually the items worth $200 or less are duty free. It is against law to ask the seller to mark your items as gifts. Even eBay warns you from doing so.

      Gift items up to $100 from Asia are duty free.

      Customs duty would be collected by the postal service that is responsible for delivering your package.

      Yeah, in case you use a courier service, they’ll collect the duties when they will deliver you the parcel.

      And in case you are importing containers or the cost of your items is more than $2000, it is best to leave the task of customs clearance to a customs broker as in such cases there is a lot of paperwork to do.

      If you want to save on shipping costs, you should buy multiple items from the same seller. If you buy items in bulk or multiple items from the same seller, he might even give you a discount on shipping.

      Getting multiple packs from different sellers is of course costlier than shipping one packet from one seller.
