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. Caso o imposto efetivamente cobrado tenha valor inferior ao depósito a Amazon faz o reembolso em até 60 days after purchase.

I opted for cheaper freight. A Amazon então usou os serviços da iParcel, that sent the product to Brazil, made the customs clearance and then posted the package at the Post Office by CAP. Note que nem sempre a Amazon usa os serviços da iParcel no frete mais barato, 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.

A DHL faz a entrega do pacote com um comprovante de pagamento de todos os impostos pelo lado de fora da caixa. 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 possivelmente fará o reembolso nas próximas semanas. We await…

Having bought exactly the same product in two different ways I can say the following. Usar a Shipito como intermediário quase sempre fica mais barato, because the higher cost are Brazilian taxes, e usando o USPS escapamos do 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, já que a Amazon deve ter algum acordo com os serviços de courier para pagar valores de frete bem abaixo do que a Shipito pay. O frete direto da Amazon tem a desvantagem dos impostos maiores e dos impostos sendo recolhidos antecipadamente, but for those in a hurry is a faster option. This package arrived 15 days, enquanto via Shipito were 24 days. E quando a Amazon resolve enviar via DHL pode 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. :)
