Drooling over the latest deal Amazon has posted on the must have gadget you’ve been craving forever and can’t seem to get it in Pakistan , well TCS , the leading courier service in Pakistan , has launched , TCS Hazir Amazon  service .

The service is simple , go to the Hazir Amazon  service , HERE , enter the URL of the item you want from Amazon and in a few hours you’ll get the quote from TCS , which you have to pay in advance to get the delivery.

Now how much it costs , I went for a simple Spigen Samsung Galaxy s6 EDGE Protector costing $12.99 to see how much the service will cost and here is the breakdown I received

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 20.57.21Yeah just Rs 9614 or around $96 for a $12.99 .

Now I’m not new to importing stuff from Amazon to Pakistan through myus.com and the shipping charges are at par with what I have to pay , but charging Rs 3,780 ($37/-  approx) which they’ll be paying Amazon is absurd , even if they don’t have Amazon Prime , which I think they should if they don’t , the total cost should not exceed $20/-  .  The clearing charges of Rs 3146 is also extremely high , as per my experience if an item is below $100 value and less than 5 pounds in weight , Pakistan Customs does not bother with it and it passes through easily , so TCS could be bringing the goods in bulk to pay taxes on it , if that’s the case the shipping cost is too high .

Nothing in the quote sent to me by TCS makes any sense , it seems all they want is to fleece the poor consumer for the little gadgets they want .

What I’ve done about my screen protector , I went to Aliexpress and ordered the $4/-  screen protector with free shipping to Pakistan which I’ll get somewhere between 15-39 days in Pakistan

  1. 🙂 Went through something similar. Ordered a mini display port to mini display port cable (which for some reason no one sells in Pakisatan) from Aliexpress instead which was delivered with free shipping and (surprisingly) without any custom clearance charges in 15 days.
