Friday’s here, but it’s not a common Friday… it’s Black Friday—the Friday that follows Thanksgiving—, which means the shopping season has officially begun. Many retailer shops have opened their stores early in the morning. You can find excellent deals in clothes, tech items, books…anything you can imagine is on sale today.
Black Friday is one of the busiest days of the year in United States. Many shoppers have even broke into shops to get what they want, not to mention the long lines outside and inside the stores.
Sale items are also in the online version of the retail stores, so if you are too busy to get out and shop, you can just purchase anything you like on web by clicking from your comfortable chair—If you do not have a comfortable chair, this would be a great time to get one—. Amazon, eBay, Wallmart and many other stores are offering great deals; you can find out more Black Friday online shopping information here.
Too sad you do not live on the States to get what you want for Christmas with great prices? No worries, thanks to online shopping and websites such as Correos del Ecuador, eshopex or ultrabox—these sites allow users to do arrangements on mail delivery— you can get all the gifts you want at a great price too. Taxes depend on the product’s courier import information. According to Ecuadorian Customs Law, if an item weights 4 kg or less and it costs less than $400, it can be imported free of taxes.
Courier imports have a 50kg limit on various articles and 20kg on shoes and clothes. Only items that cost less than $2.000 can be imported. Online Ecuadorian shoppers also have to consider ICE (product + shipping cost) and ad valorem taxes, some items with amazing discounts can be convenient but not all of them will have great final prices.
