Paying no import tax or VAT is strange, unless the value is under $15

The package stopped at Clark for customs assessment, but no customs charge was made. The value was over $35, and that was clear in the package papers, so I have no idea why there was no customs charge. I'm certainly not complaining. Would you?

I'm surprised..  VERY surprised..  Was there any import duty?  Anyone try this with something that required a duty to be paid to Bureau of Customs?  Does that get handled by DHL?

Did you get to choose DHL as courier of choice or did Amazon determine that directly?

There should not be a duty charge if the shipment is under $200.00 including freight at least thats how it works on spare parts I order from China shipped by DHL never ordered anything yet from US

In January 2016 the Philippine Congress passed an Act, which if signed into law, will raise the Philippine’s de-minimis threshold significantly from 33 cents to $200 (Rappler, 2016).

If you get really bored, here are the two volumes of the Tariff and Customs Codes of the Philippines.

And an easier to use reading of the Tariff Book from the Tariff Commission.
