How to evade/reduce taxes on gmarket orders! November 27, 2010

 

 

This is extremely important for those of you are are in Europe or America where the tax officers are very strict.

 


We learnt the hard way of learning how to evade being taxed, and only mastered the art of it after a few shipments, so here we are sharing with all of you, so make sure (and hopefully!) you read this before you go on with your orders.

 


Rule #1

Always split your shipments in two.

 

 

When shopping on Gmarket, make sure you separate your orders in two orders.

 


The FIRST ORDER is the most important one, and the order which Gmarket will take when declaring taxes. Therefore, split your orders into two and put all the cheap stuff on your first order. To be sure, put items below 20,000 Korean Wons on your first order, and make sure it has at LEAST 4 items.

 


Rule #2

 

 

Place items which are more expensive on a second order. To be extra safe, put only 3 of these very expensive items in one order.  Unfortunately, you would have to pay for shipping twice, but it doesn’t matter as Gmarket will weigh both of your orders and ship it in one shipment, and the balance will be debited to you in your Gbalance account

 

.

After placing both orders, go to your Gmarket Shopping List. Click on Overseas Order.

 


Capture

 

 

Then tick on both orders that was placed, and at the bottom of the page, click on ‘REQUEST COMBINED SHIPMENT’.

 

If you don’t want the hassle of doing combining two orders, just put everything in one order – and Gmarket will only pick 4 items to be declared. If they pick the expensive ones – then you’re unlucky.

 

 

If ever your shipment is retained by the customs, don’t be stupid enough to send them the whole bill/paypal receipt. Gmarket picked only 4 items to be declared, therefore if you send the tax officers your paypal/gmarket/credit card recipt, you will end up paying taxes for the whole order.

 

 

What to do in this case? Simply e-mail Gmarket and ask them to scan your EMS label. Once you receive your EMS label, you will know how much to declare in your letter/or ‘letter proforma’ in french, and you will end up paying taxes for those 4 items!

2nd Gmarket Order October 19, 2010

Twitpic – Share photos on Twitter.

Was taxed 35 euros !!!! I wish Gmarket was like Sasa, Adambeauty or Cosmo-beauty, where they mark down the price so it can escape taxes! 😦
