[sdiy] US help with Electronic Goldmine order

Import duties into Australia currently only apply to purchases over
AUD$1000 in declared value - so it might well apply to computer and
music gear, but not small value electronic parts like this.  There
was some discussion of that changing a little while ago, but nothing
has happened yet.

There are no special import forms to fill out, but I expect the sender
would need to fill out the usual US postal/export paperwork (whatever
that might be) to post to me.

A kindly soul from the US has already replied to me direct and I'm
talking with them now - I'll be in touch if it doesn't work out.

Thanks everyone,

 Are there any import duties for electronics coming in to Australia?
My friends there tell me that ordering computers and music gear ends
up with a high percentage import fee, making it hard to get
electronics. Would a $30 package require any sort of import process or
forms to be filled out by the sender?

after you submit your order!) I've bought from the before and they
never used to have this limit :-

isn't anything else I want to buy from them in order to take my $27.34
order up to $50 :-)
