    I use USPS Express Mail. It is much cheaper than DHL or FedEx and they deliver. But sometimes their delivery takes up to six weeks instead of promised "3-5 days". But so far they deliver and never issues with customs.

    Ten cphones by USPS Express Mail will cost you some $50 US. And they deliver right into hands.

    I only declare value and never included any invoices/receipts.

    So far, no prob.

    Some expensive items. Valuable. Like auto parts, electronics.

    domenico,

    If you are hoping to make your fortune reselling phones you bought on ebay in the DR, get in line. Many have tried. I haven't heard of anyone who has made any significant money doing this yet, and most have done well to break even after investing a lot of time.

    If you bring it in through Business Mail or EPS there is a maximum value of US200 before Aduanas will apply tariffs.

    You need a receipt too, declaring the value means nothing to Aduanas because they have their own rules. Anybody who has done it this way and didn't get caught was lucky and is only a matter of time. I live in the DR and buy stuff abroad all of the time.

    Please do not sent cellphones to Dominican Republic.
    The parents buy only telephonecards and do not buy food for the children, because the Dominicans are phone-addicted.
