So would you say that depending on the value of the imported goods, you have more chances to have it stopped?
Obviously.

Less the value and more a combination of what it is and the declared value.

If a seller puts $1 on 120cm gong (true order), then it'll get stopped. Luckily that one was under 65chf.

If a seller puts $30 on a mobile phone, it'll get stopped and checked.

It's been a bit hit and miss lately, as it seems like sellers want to falsify the value of items. I make an effort to order in parts, so no order is over 65chf... and yet they still falsify the declared value...

Is 65chf the threshold value to get VAT on it?

Depends on if it's 7.7% VAT or 2.5% VAT, or some combination thereof..

The threshold is CHF 5 of VAT.

And don't forget the shipping costs.
