Tax charge for order on Amazon.fr

Hi guys.

I'm thinking of ordering a video game (an XBox 360 game) from Amazon.fr. Will I have to pay the import tax upon reception of the package, and if so, how much is the percentage?

Probably nothing if it costs less than CHF 200.

Wrong. Tax (+ admin cost) would be charged once the value is over about 62 CHF, including postage.

55 Euro DVD from amazon.de got 25CHF tax/charge
