Customs clearance and fees Import from China to Switzerland

HI there, is anyone importing products from China to Switzerland ?
Basically I was wondering how much would customs cost me.

If you know about any good agency that can sort this out for me, would be much appreciated
Thanks

Ordered a lot of stuff from Aliexpress but I guess that wouldnt count as importing.Till now, I have never had to pay anything extra.

You can also follow the links from here and see for yourself how much it costs. Most documents are available in English.
https://www.ezv.admin.ch/ezv/en/home...itzerland.html
After the VAT (Mehrwertsteuer) on the total of the imported goods and delivery costs reaches SFr. 5.- (which normally in practice means combined goods/postage costs of just under SFr. 65.- ), then you have to pay. Just going over that threshold can cost around an additional SFr. 30 in administration fees depending which company handles it.
