Notes for ordering Amazon products from Singapore

  1. Choose items that can be shipped
  2. Import & Customs
  3. Currency conversion
  4. Shipping and handling

Import fees

Amazon asks this up front in the form of a Import fees deposit, which is an estimation, when your value goes above 400SGD (including shipping).

You must spend less than 400SGD to be granted GST relief.

Shipping and handling

AmazonGlobal standard shipping seems to take about 2 weeks on my experience. You might be eligible for free shipping if the total order is above 125USD.

Conclusion

Use Amazon when you can afford to wait two weeks, and spend > 125USD but not more than 400SGD (~285USD).
