Responsibility for Importation
When ordering Amazon Global Store Products, you are responsible for lawfully importing the product into the India and act as the importer on record for customs purposes into the India. The risk of loss and title for Amazon Global Store Products that you purchase pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. You may be subject to taxes and fees levied by Indian customs and tax authorities ("Import Tax and Fees"), which are triggered when a shipment is imported into India. Please see below for more details regarding Import Tax and Fees. You agree that you will be the final consumer of the product or that you will be giving the product to another individual as a gift, and in any case that the product is being purchased for personal use only and not for resale or for any commercial use.
Import Fees & Deposit
As imported products, Amazon Global Store Products may be subject to Import Tax and Fees. As the importer on record, you are solely responsible for paying these taxes and fees. We will estimate the amount of Import Tax and Fees (the "Estimated Import Tax and Fees") for Amazon Global Store Products and charge them to you when you place an order. For each Amazon Global Store Product on which the Estimated Import Tax and Fees are charged, you authorise Amazon US to designate a carrier ("Designated Carrier") to act as your agent with the relevant customs and tax authorities, to carry out the customs clearance for the merchandise, process and pay the Actual Import Tax and Fees for such items.
The Estimated Import Tax and Fees may not be the same as the actual amount paid to the relevant Indian authorities (the "Actual Import Tax and Fees"). Customs regulations and tax rates applicable to certain goods may change between the date the taxes and duties were estimated and the applicable taxes and duties on the date of import into the India. The duty or tax rate is determined by the classification of a good and the total value of your imported products. The Estimated Import Tax and Fees will be used, on your behalf, to reimburse the Designated Carriers for the Actual Import Tax Fees that they have paid on your behalf to the appropriate authorities. You further agree that the Designated Carrier or other agent may disclose to Amazon US the Actual Import Tax and Fees along with any other information that Amazon requests to validate the payment of the Actual Import Tax and Fees.
If the Actual Import Tax and Fees are less than the Estimated Import Tax and Fees, you'll automatically be refunded the difference. You'll receive a notification e-mail confirming the amount of the refund. The process takes approximately 60 days from the date on which the customs clearance completes for you to receive any refunded amount. If the Actual Import Tax and Fees are more than the Estimated Import Tax and Fees, you will not be charged any additional amounts. To obtain details regarding the actual Import Fees, or to obtain documentation or receipts in connection with customs clearance, you may contact the Designated Carrier specified in your shipment confirmation e-mail. You agree to grant the authorizations (in Annexure-1) on behalf of yourself or the receipt designated in case of gifts or other purchases made on behalf of another recipient in your order for Amazon Global Store products.
