Amazon: mais um Synology America DiskStation 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage (DS214play)

Last month I falei sobre um Synology America DiskStation 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage (DS214play) acquired on Amazon U.S., with the package being redirected to Brazil by Shipito. As I was quite satisfied with the result decided to buy another, this time to use in my workplace. About the product already talked a lot in the first article, so here I will focus only on the details of this new acquisition.

This time I did not use the services Shipito, it must pay the amount invested accounts, and it would be hard to explain a redirect service. So I opted for the shipment to Brazil being done directly by Amazon. In this mode the freight to Brazil is paid directly to Amazon and is also paid almost 100% on the plus shipping product value as a deposit for payment of import tax Dilma and ICMS. If the tax actually charged is less than the deposit to be Amazon refunds up to 60 days after purchase.

I opted for cheaper freight. A Amazon then used iParcel services, that sent the product to Brazil, made the customs clearance and then posted the package at the Post Office by CAP. Note that nem always a Amazon uses iParcel services on the cheapest shipping, sometimes she also uses DHL, which is much faster (I pack coming only 2 days!) and takes delivery in Brazil, without using the services of Posts.

DHL delivers the package with proof of payment of all taxes outside the box. Already iParcel puts just a peck to contact with QP AIR company to know about taxes. In peck has email and phone such company. Contacting the QP AIR via email indicated that the product was taxed and would send the vouchers the next day. And the fact vouchers came the next day, but strangely the DARF (Import Tax) was paid while the package was already in transit through CAP to my address, and sales tax was paid on the same day they sent me the proof. The sum of taxes collected is absurdly high, as is normal in Brazil, but still less than the amount of the deposit, then Amazon possibly make a refund in the coming weeks. We await…

Having bought exactly the same product in two different ways I can say the following. Use to Shipito as an intermediary it almost always gets cheaper, because the higher cost are Brazilian taxes, and using the USPS we escaped the ICMS (in states that do not charge GST packages coming by USPS, as is the case of São Paulo) and the tax on freight. But, the freight itself is more expensive, since the Amazon must have some agreement with the courier services to pay freight rates well below what the Shipito pay. Direct freight from Amazon has the disadvantage of higher taxes and taxes being collected in advance, but for those in a hurry is a faster option. This package arrived 15 days, while watching Shipito were 24 days. And when Amazon resolves to send via DHL can get only 2 days!

And I'm ending here with a more positive assessment for the Synology America DiskStation 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage (DS214play) and another positive review for Amazon. Do not forget to share the article with your friends if you like. Good fun and good shopping. :)

wave, I really like this site and never bought it on amazon, a doubt and regarding the advance payment of dilmas… I saw in forums that people have already been taxed buying on amazon. I want to buy a tattoo equipment and the freight is like this:

Items: BRL 265,96
Shipping & handling: BRL 99,17
