Why i will not be renewing this year?
During 2020 i have not ordered many items from aliexpress (china) due to… obvious reasons.
On the packages that i have ordered and received, mostly small accessories worth several dollars, i paid customs fees worth nearly the same amount.
In December i received a package from my family, and i paid 50 AED customs fee. Since this was not an order, but a personal package, i have made a complaint that still has not been resolved.
If we break down the 300 AED cost of the PO BOX into individual packages => It would take at least 12 packages to break even the cost of the service. I do not see myself receiving so many packages during 2021.
During 2020, i have not received more than 6 packages. For that reason alone, it should be enough to not renew the service.
However, the cost of 300 AED is not worth the trouble if you get to pay customs taxes on personal packages too.
If you feel otherwise, please go ahead and get yourself a personal PO BOX #.
