Sounds fantastic.

Like you said, too good to be true!

However, at various times I have seen Amazon packages likes next to the gate of my porteros in my building in Palermo. Wonder if they are using this service.

i've never tried it...but, perusing my amazon account it seems to state the same process outlined above.

i looked for a simple item (a water filter) and amazon tells me it ships here, but with a 75 dollar import fee. for a 25 dollar filter.

maybe other duties wouldn't be so bad.

looking further into the examples quoted - one was for a laptop where 20% of the import fees was returned
for a xiaomi phone amazon.com charges a full 100% of the (price + shipping) as deposit for the import fees.

Price $249.50
AmazonGlobal Shipping + $37.39
Estimated Import Fees Deposit + $294.36
Total $581.25

From a quick look on amazon.uk or amazon.es there are extremely few items that will ship to argentina
