Import allowance: Germany - how much?

Hello,

I'm aware that the import allowance into CH is CHF 65 without you having to pay any tax and duty.

However does anyone know if there is a limit for Germany?

I have a DE delivery addresss and want to place an order on ASOS for a high amount to get delivered there.

Order will be around CHF 1000, but I have a -50% off code, so paid total will be 500. I'm jus worried that I'll have additional charges when it's delivered....

Where's it coming from? If EU, no more charges.......if outside, I think the import charges start from 300 or 400 euros.

If you are delivering EU to EU there will be no charge.

The limit for tax free into Switzerland per person is 300chf per person.
