Buy from Ebay CH - custom tax?

Just realised there is ebay ch available and the price shown are in CHF. Does it means that I will not expect any additional custom tax or fee, and the price shown on the Ebay CH is the final price?

If not, for an item with a final price tag of CHF 200 (which included 7.7 % Swiss tax), how much additional tax or fee I should be expecting?

  • If the item is in Switzerland, no.
  • It it's outside of Switzerland and uses "Ebay global shipping"^ then yes, if the item value +shipping cost is over approx. CHF62 but it is transparent in the purchase price.
  • It it's outside of Switzerland and uses regular shipping than yes, if the item value +shipping cost is over approx. CHF62 but you pay this plus handling fee manually to the Post on delivery.

^ The slowest form of shipping that exists on the planet. They have updated the platform recently and this is now ironically called "Priority International Shipping". Must be an in-joke... takes 1 month or more.

There is no "customs tax", just VAT.

In the order for instance, the Swiss VAT of 7.7 % has already been included and shown as a final price of CHF200. In that case, I assume I will be expecting only the "handling fee" in case the custom opened the package? Is that the case?

Only if there is more VAT to pay.
