iHerb台灣購物怎麼買比較划算?售價調整/取消完稅價/小資2000內可退稅

duty-paid price - iHerb's service reply

2022.6.1更新:Today iHerb announces on website that *all the product prices for shipping to Taiwan have been changed to duty-paid prices.Duty-paid price means the original selling price of the product + Taiwan customs duties and related handling fees. That is to say, whether there is or not to buy more than NT$2,000 of tax-free quota, there is no need to pay customs duties. iHerb will settle and pay customs duties with Taiwan Customs on its own.

有網友誤會以為是iHerb刻意漲價,其實不是,這些費用主要是台灣海關這邊徵收的。如果很不能接受關稅包進售價裡,也是可以考慮從香港或是美國買,再集運回來。

2022.6.2更新:今天iHerb在網站上發佈了新消息,對運送到台灣的售價已全部改成完稅價,所以也不會有後續要退稅的問題了。

iHerb台灣改成完稅價對於小資族想買2000元免課關稅訂單比較有影響,我EMAIL詢問 iHerb客服,想再詳細確認是不是有方法可以申請退稅。以下是 iHerb客服回覆的內容和截圖。

改成完稅價也不是完全沒有好處,原本想買低於2000元的,只要 全部都買有折扣的商品、湊滿額免運費、使用獎勵金there's chance maybe you only need to pay a little more than before, and you don’t have to worry about whether you will accidentally exceeding the duty-free quota only a few cents but then need to pay a lot of tax. ( This situation won't happen now )

依照iHerb客服的回覆,iHerb目前都還在調整優化階段,隨時都可能會有改進的新作法,大家不妨拭目以待囉 🙂

Tips to save more with duty-paid price

iHerb台灣商品全面改成完稅價,很多人會覺得CP值未免降太多了吧,我實際精算了一下,還是可以很好買,但儘量要Choose shipping saver products to make it Free Shipping.The original business tax (5%) for beauty care products is actually not much different. Nutrition and health foods are subject to 30% import tax and 5% business tax. The price difference is about 1.5 times .If it can be controlled at about 30% off the whole order, You can deduct tariffs and get 4% off. so at least you won't pay more .

現在台灣免運費的門檻是80美元,香港是40美元,依實際計算 80美元 就是運台灣最經濟的消費金額,因為香港或美國的集運費用很高,以一張2000元的訂單來算,運費大約都是要5、6百以上,集運的費用和完稅價多出來的花費比例差不多都是比原本多了1.5倍差額。如果是比較重的營養食品類商品那運費又更可觀了。所以結論是大多情形在台灣買會更方便,不用擔心關稅和重量的問題,減少運送折損的風險,和集運回來總消費金額也差不多。

The charts below are a trial calculation of three groups of different discounts with * Nutrition Supplement products,可以給大家作參考,預設是2000元以下+免運費訂單。比較完稅價和以前原本售價會多花或省多少錢。營養保健食品類的商品 – 原本2000元以下可免稅訂單,現在大約要整單七折才有省大約4%(96折)

iHerb - Taiwan change to Duty-paid Price, How to buy it more cost-effectively?

“選擇運送到台灣”且“消費到免運門檻金額”,這樣會是最經濟又省事的。

多賺一些獎勵金可以當作是抵掉多花的稅金。例如,買沒有買過的商品,之後給評論就可以得到$1美元的獎勵金,這是可以穩拿的。另外,參加每天的 🏆「學習和贏取」抽獎勵購物金 活動,中獎機率高,也是蠻不錯的。

iHerbnot only sells nutritional products, other categories such as beauty care products are exempt from goods tax and only need 5% sales tax. These are not much different, you still can buy them and get nice discount ^^

It is easier to make up a Free Shipping order with group purchases (more items). If you are used to restocking when you run out of food, you can consider ordering half a year's amount at a time .But be careful of the quantity limit of health food regulations (Taiwan Custom). You can refer to this article➡️ Taiwan oversea online shopping pocket notes ( quick glance )

如果想買的東西都沒有減運費(DHL),或是台灣缺貨、iHerb不運送台灣的商品,或是低於2000元訂單整張訂單平均下來折扣少於7折(商品不重),或許可以考慮改用香港或美國集運回來 ( refer to this article ➡️ Consolidation Company Fee Comparison

現在iHerb又有Global Air滿額免運的優惠了,滿NT1800元免運,未滿額的訂單運費固定是NT250元。

買台灣當地沒有賣的商品。市面上很多人在賣的商品,可自行評估是否划算。台灣各購物平台都常有低額免運費的優惠,再加上信用卡/行動支付的消費回饋,如果只是偶爾想買一兩樣營養品,那可能可以在台灣買就好了。
iHerb的優勢就是有世界各地的商品,不見得最暢銷的就最適合你,在iHerb可以有非常多的選擇,而且品質都有把關。利用這點好處,也算是錢花在刀口上,可以花的更值得。

用美元結帳可以省一些匯差。💳MasterCard / VISA / JCB 信用卡的匯率也有一些些差異(上面可直接連到各家的官網查詢,→綜合查詢信用卡美金匯率)。

善加利用有海外消費回饋的信用卡結帳付款,很多銀行都有1-3%左右的現金或點數回饋,也算是變相彌補了多付稅金或運費的部份。海外消費刷卡會有1.5%的手續費,所以最好是用有回饋1.5%以上的,才真的算是有得到多出來的錢可以用來補iHerb完稅價的缺口。

What is the difference now to buy at iHerb from Taiwan and what should be paid attention to?

iHerb resumes shipping to Taiwan on 2022.2.17. Taiwan Customs stipulates that the customs declaration amount cannot be reported with the actual payment amount after deducting the bonus, which means that the bonus that originally had duty-free expansion space has become invalid .If you buy a product of NT$1500, the shipping fee is NT$300, deducted NT$200 bonus, the actual payment is 1600 yuan, but when you get to the customs, no matter how much you use the bonus, you will use NT$1800 for customs declaration. I personally think that iHerb should be able to strive for space, and I hope they will have better offers for Taiwan in the future.

This April, iHerb offered "Self Brands 50% OFF", I think that's a good way to make up cost.iHerb is generous for customers 🙂 。

2022.6.1 iHerb-台灣 商品全面改成含稅價,所以就不會再有上面提到的獎勵金也要算進去的問題了。

What is DDP?

During the period from 2/7 to 6/1, 2022, iHerb used the "DDP advance customs duty" method to checkout and pay for orders in Taiwan. For tax-free orders less than NT$2,000, iHerb will verify whether there is no duty to pay when the customer receives the goods, and automatically refund to the original payment account within 48 hours.

Starting from 2022.6.2, iHerb has changed its new practice, changing the original practice of "prepaid customs duties" to "dutiable value of goods", which can simplify the order delivery process and facilitate faster customs clearance.

進口貨物需要繳納關稅、稅費和手續費,這些都是由台灣當地政府機構徵收的。使用 DDP(完稅後交貨),您將無需在交貨時支付任何額外的關稅或稅費。

" Imported goods are subject to duties, taxes, and handling fees which are levied by the local government agency in Taiwan. With * DDP (Delivered Duties Paid), you do not have to pay any additional duty or tax at the time of delivery. "

DDP (Delivered Duty Paid)is a customs term, which means * delivery after duty payment* (delivered to a designated destination). According to DDP regulations, the seller-exporter shall bear all the risks in the process of delivering the goods to the designated destination, and shall be fully responsible for the customs clearance procedures at the destination customs and the payment of customs duties and other costs. The seller bears the greatest responsibility for this kind of delivery method.
