Foreign online stores connect option from Russian customs

Russian buyers of foreign online stores will have the opportunity to pay customs duties directly when buying on the site, it follows from the material of the Rossiyskaya Gazeta. Until January 2019, the Russians paid a fee at the post offices upon receipt of the goods.
Foreign online stores will be able to voluntarily connect a new option in the framework of the pilot project “Post of Russia” and the Federal Customs Service. The technological solution will allow them to immediately notify the buyer when the duty-free purchase threshold is exceeded.
Now the "ceiling" is 500 euro per month. For all the excess, a fee of 30% is provided. That is, when ordering parcels, for example, on 700 euro per month, the Russian will pay 30% with 200 euro.
When buying in a foreign online store that has connected to the project of remote payment of duty, the fee through the "Post of Russia" will be transferred immediately to the treasury. If the store is not involved in the project, the buyer will still pay a fee at the post office.
Earlier, the media wrote about the new possibility of the FCS to charge additional fees on parcels from China while understating the cost or weight.
According to Data Insight, for 2018 a year, the volume of purchases at foreign online stores in Russia (cross-border sales) in rubles increased by 29%, to 348 billion rubles.
