Can I get some money back from online shopping?

Hi all,

I'm fairly incompetent in tax issues, so I'm addressing you for help

We ordered a table from Germany, and paid ~830 CHF for it (delivery included).
The invoice we received contains:
1. Zollquittung/Handelsrechnung
Nachname Gebühr = 20 CHF
Import Zollabfertigung = 60 CHF
Einfuhrumsatsteuer = 64 CHF
and some other stuff, in total = 165 CHF

2. Veranlagungsverfügung Zoll
Bemessunsgrundlage MWST Ansatz 7.7% = 64.20 CHF

3. Rechnung in EUR:
727 EUR, Mwst 0%
message: "Hierbei handelt es sich um eine steuerfreie Ausfuhrlieferung"

I understand this like:
* we didn't pay the German VAT
* we paid the Swiss VAT
* we paid the import tax
* we cannot claim any money
Are these assumptions correct?
Can we use the Veranlagungsverfügung in any way (e.g, for tax declaration etc.)?

Many thanks.

Correct and no, why would you be able to claim taxes paid? Would be nice though
