#1
Hi all, 
I'm from Europe (Italy) and I'd like to know from other european users:
1) which courier was used to deliver the product to you (DHL, UPS, national post service...)
2) are there duties or fees? (shippings start from USA for us)

Thaks in advance

1. Most part of EU countries use EMS and some use China Post.
2. Whether there are duties fee or not depends on the custom. Since we declare the Pine A64 as computer board, our understanding is may not be duty fee but we can't guarantee.

Ems is in Chinapost. The thing is that chinapost has a normal shipping and EMS is faster(1week aprox.).
If your tracking is R......CN it will be chinapost slow shipping i think

I don't know how about Italy but in Slovakia if you buy goods from outside of EU and for personal usage there is limit 22EUR (per shipment) where you don't pay anything extra. For 22-150EUR you pay VAT which is currently 20% (VAT needs to be paid also for packaging and shipment services). Above 150EUR needs to be paid VAT + DUTY. Amount of duty depend on what kind of goods you are buying. I called customs few weeks back and asked what would be an DUTY for PINE A64. The person told me for computer components which are NOT COMPLETE AND WORKING APPLIANCE (for example notebook with OS installed is considered as working appliance) there is NO DUTY FEE. The same person gave me also category number where it might be assigned 84733020 or 84733080.

But the same person also told me that person who will process this shipment might assign different category and therefore there might be some DUTY on the end.

If there will be need to pay duty (and/or VAT) the shipment should be taken to "duty quarantine" and duty office will contact me.

I have ordered several extra modules (some of them are not yet assembled) and therefore I can write here sometime in May (hope I will receive shipment by then) how was the true story with customs in my case.
