FAQs on NEW Pricing Option “Php 600 / lb Delivery Duty Paid”
What is Php 600 / lb Delivery Duty Paid (DDP)?
Delivered Duty Paid means that duty and tax will be billed to Buyandship. The price for this option will be Php 600 / lb.
Why is there an increase in price options?
This option will allow you to have more convenience and less hassle as Buyandship arranges for the duty and tax rather than the other option of Php 350 / lb Delivery Duty Unpaid wherein you are billed by local courier for duty and tax.
As a reminder please make sure that you declare your shipments properly based on your invoice and receipt. Always double-check that your declaration is made in the warehouse currency you shipped to and that the unit price per item is as is in your invoice and receipt.
Will the price increase be inclusive of duty and tax?
Yes. But note we will charge you back if you misdeclared the parcel value according to PH customs.
Who will bill me for duty and tax? Will I be billed for duty and tax?
Buyandship will pay for the duty and tax as long as there’s no false declaration. Note we will charge you back if you were caught under-declaring the parcel value by PH customs.
How do I avail of that option?
You will need to go to the “My Addresses” section of your dashboard and create an address that specifies the Php 600 / lb DDP option. You will need to choose that delivery address when you checkout. Please note you will need to duplicate your address and select each option for the same address.
Please note there is a tutorial below to show you how to do this.
Is this option a faster service?
No, it is a more convenient and less hassle service. And most likely more savings.
How much is my insurance in this case? Is it the same basic insurance and 3% enhanced insurance and how much does it cover?
You will still have free basic insurance and an option for enhanced insurance of 3%. The coverage is the same as before.
For DDP, are there fewer/more prohibited items?
The same prohibited items will be applied. Please see the Prohibited Items section.
For DDP, are there different parcel size restrictions?
Please see the Pricing section for each parcel size and weight limitations.
For DDP, is it the same declaration process?
Yes, it is the same declaration process. As a reminder please make sure that you declare your shipments properly based on your invoice and receipt. Always double-check that your declaration is made in the warehouse currency and the unit price per item is as it is in your invoice and receipt.
E.g. product name/type should be the item description, not just brand name or model. Unit price per item should be per unit price of the item not the total value of it.
Is there a limit to how much the total declaration value of a consolidated shipment is allowed for the DDP option?
The total value limit is Php 95,000 or below. If it is above Php 95,000 you will not be able to choose DDP option when checking out and instead can only choose the DDU option.
What is the difference between Php 350 / lb DDU and Php 600 / lb DDP?
The option of Php 350 / lb DDU means that your shipment passes through PH customs and the local courier will prepare the billing for you to pay COD. In this option please note if the combined shipment value on the same day it passes through Philippines Customs is above Php 10k, there are PH customs clearance fees separate from our shipping fee and that is paid to local courier either COD or bank transfer and sent to your home. If Php 10k or below then just our shipping fee 🙂 To enjoy no duty and tax please read further HERE.
For example, a laptop, in general, is 0% duty and around 15% taxes and other fees. Please note if you use our US shipping address there is no US sales tax for online orders. Our clients ask tariff commission for specifics about their product.
The option of Php 600 / lb DDP means that Buyandship will be billed for the duty and tax. Buyandship will pay for the duty and tax as long as there’s no false declaration. Note we will charge you back if you misdeclared the parcel according to PH customs.
