Assunto:  Per shipment, compras AMAZON
 
Mensagem:  Amazon.com books are sent airmail.  I don't recall if I would receive books directly from Amazon.com while I was in Brazil or not.  Possibly they were sent to my sister who re-mailed them with other things.  Only once did I pay customs fees, and that was for a DVD set that was not bought from Amazon.com.  To my surprise, customs in Porto Alegre asked for the PayPal receipt.  It was my good fortune that I had it with me.  Be aware that in Brazil you pay a customs fee based on the cost of the item PLUS the shipment fee.  I do not know if customs fees are charged for books.  The DVDs were labeled "educational", and that did not help even a little bit.  Again, I paid customs fees once, and I was getting packages from the USA about once per month.  The bitch was that I had to drive from Gramado into Porto Alegre.  Fortunately, I had planned to go that day anyway.
