Hello guys,

I am a frequent buyer of goods through online trading sites in India such as flipkart, ebay, bitfang, snapdeal, theITdepot etc. I use SBI Net Banking for payments.

Now I intend to buy the following from amazon.com:
a GPU worth 450$
a keyboard worth 150$
a Liquid Coolers worth 100$.

total amount is about 700$.

my question is:

Once I make payment of items + shipping, will the commodity arrive to my doorstep, or do I have to pay customs duty over that 700$ for any of the items once it enters India?

First you need to be sure whethere Amazon.com ship those items to India or not! Amazon.com doesn't not ship all of its item to India, infact they ship very few. While purchasing select "India" as country in shipping address and it will tell you whether they can ship those items or not. If they do, they I don't think you will have to pay for any Custom duty, etc. If there is any then it will be included in shipping cost or you will be notified for extra cost that you will be paying. If your purchase qualify for shipment in India, email to their support team with your queries before purchasing.

Amazon.in is the Indian version now :wink:
Although they don't have all products, they're increasing product catalog steadily.

To see if the product is available in India, select the "AmazonGlobal Eligible" box in the filters tab. If you find the product add it to your cart then click view cart. In the right side just below the 'Subtotal' there's "Estimmate your shipping and taxes". There you go!
GPU are usually cheaper, no idea about keyboard and liquid cooler though.

Junglee.com doesn't ship or sell any product. Its just a kind of catalog where you can search for details, prices and sellers or dealers of any particular product.

Thanks Everyone!
For the sake of clarity, let me re-state my confusion:
" Hi, I would like to purchase the following:

1. Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 120GB SSD - 109$
Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 120GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE120BW: Computers & Accessories

2. Corsair Vengeance K95 - 150$
Amazon.com: Corsair Vengeance K95 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry Red (CH-9000020-NA): Computers & Accessories

3. Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C 4GB XMS2 PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-Pin Dual Channel DDR2 Desktop Memory - 68$
Amazon.com : Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C 4GB XMS2 PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-Pin Dual Channel DDR2 Desktop Memory : Desktop Computer Internal Memory : Electronics

4. Gigabyte GTX 770 GDDR5-4GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC WINDFORCE 3X Graphics Card GV-N770OC-4GD - 450$
Amazon.com: Gigabyte GTX 770 GDDR5-4GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC WINDFORCE 3X Graphics Card GV-N770OC-4GD: Computers & Accessories

I shall opt for Standard Shipping, and they need to be shipped to India.

My question is: 109+150+68+450= 777$. Will this be the final amount that I need to pay so that the product reaches my doorstep, or will it incur some more overhead charges (such as customs, import duty, etc) once it enters India?

All suggestions regarding how to ship it in the cheapest manner, are welcome. I am buying from amazon.com for the first time, and the above items are not available on Amazon.in: Online Shopping for Books, Mobiles, Computers, Cameras, Movies & TV Shows, Kindle E-Readers, Kindle accessories and E-Books .
