I commented on the article on tayyar.org, but they censored it and kept the article !!! At least lebanonfiles removed it.
Tayyar.org seems to be pleased with the fact that people are continuously liking the article and showing a complete and utter disregard to basic journalistic principles.

Comment on Custom fees to be imposed on orders from AliExpress? by M i K

Plus961 comments - Sat, 2014-10-18 23:08

Thank you for posting this thread as it affects all Lebanese online shoppers.

AliExpress is a low budget online shop that offers great values for the same products that local dealers are selling for much higher prices.

Customs should be imposing Fees on Traders / Businesses & Whole Sale. And not on a single personal item. For example: Even If you buy a $5,000 device for personal use and carry it with you on a flight. The Customs will let you go if you open the package and show them it’s for Personal Use.

I would understand and support this decision if Lebanon showed some competitive local production. But our country is running only on Mass Imports and Consumption

Thus this decision only benefits the customs & Big businessmen / Importers and hurts the poor consumer that’s trying to save a few dollars.

The European countries have a much bigger problem with the Chinese/Far eastern Markets. They have a strong currency and they cannot compete with their low prices. So their governments simply supported local productions and imposed higher taxed on “Mass imports only”. That means you can still order from AliExpress and others in any European country and find the item on you doorstep in the right time with Zero Custom fees. The only taxable shipments are the wholesales (Like Alibaba) and businesses making mass orders.

And by the way, this is what I normally do when i order something online. I just use my friend’s EU address (The shipment is cheaper and faster). And I wait for my next trip there to get it myself or vice versa (It’s quiet a hassle but it’s the safest way).

This is very bad for Lebanese online shoppers..
Bad Economy & Salaries ; No Local production ; Mass Imports and more stupid laws to make the rich get even richer. The Big Sharks keep making our lives harder !
