my secondary account.  I am philipma1957

gear came .  fees for 2 units = 89 usd

could be worse.  I think I won't ask many questions for the time being.
That is on par with what I paid today to clear my single B3 miner. I asked the UPS agent for a breakdoen and it was a total of $46.86  mostly Customs duty and something like $3-4 for the UPS brokerage fee to process the Customs duty and import clearance.

Either the import thresholds have changed or the miner is mis-marked for shipping code.

I'd have to look up the exact code but is supposed to be for:
    Electronic equipment, computer, no terminal or display
or something like that.

It also took an odd hop in Japan -- usual route is Shenzhen > Osaka > Anchorage > etc.
This time it arrived in Narita first but then left from Osaka. Er? A bit of a trek there.

FYI, I wrote to Bitmain about this and they claim that they haven't changed the shipping codes. The implication is that it's the dollar figure triggering the difference, or UPS has gotten gready.

The fact that every S9 was in excess of $2k while every S7 was under ($1.8k I think) leads me to think that we're in that gray area that Phil indicated where anything north of $2k might be interpreted as commercial and hence subject to duty.

I'm going to take this up with UPS, but I doubt it will change anything.

Bitmain needs to understand that the $2k threshold has an impact on the US market. They should return to pricing that's more sane.

They've been especially greedy this time. They probably would have made much more money if they had priced the S9 lower, assuming that they could fill the unit demand.
Could well be that US Customs is looking at it more as well. I got my both my b1 and 1st b3 without duty being charged and they both were more than this 3rd one. Getting 3 over $2k value each in ~1 month might raise a flag in tracking systems.

yeah could be  I did 2 batch 1's then 2 batch 2's   grand total of 8300(estimated) with the shipping.

I can not complain  with my orders since dec 2013  I have not paid much.

I will do a waiting game  and mine for now.

As a person who has received invoices for hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of miners Customs Duties have always been $0, unless the tariff code was entered wrong, however there have always been Customs Fee's and Brokerage fees, either with private brokers or UPS/Shipping company brokerages.

@ Philipma, Ditto. Since April 2014 think this is only the 3-4th time I've had to pay duty. I could look back and see what time frames/orders I did when I got chargde but too lazy.. Wink But kinda seems right.

Ok call it Customs fees and brokerage fees, either way it's has been very rare I've had to pay them and since I've gotten at least 1 or 2 of pretty much all of Bitmains generations of batch-1 miners - they've been pricey.

i think dhl charges a lot more to ship it.

dhl      1 s7ln = 67.56
ups     1 s7ln = 82.08
fedex  1 s7ln = 54.51

well based on s7ln fees maybe I will give dhal a shot next time.

but I really think I will just let it drop to  under 1800 before I buy again

All my shipments from BMT and AliExpress to SG are with DHL - very fast, minimal paperwork and all web & SMS automated.

I just pay the Goods & Services Tax (GST) upon arrival to my doorsteps - about 7% of declared value.

From Amazon, I used Fedex and UPS before but too many paperwork and delays. Some UPS packages did not arrive!

Changed to DHL and no more issues.

DHL is very much based on location.  Some people will love them others will run into issues.   I am on the very edge of my  DHL driver's route so not so great for me.  Any shipment that goes DHL I can count on him calling me end of day and asking if I can meet at X location or I won't get it that day.  Worst one was around a hour and half away.... I did not have time to meet him so went next day.

I can't find it the name of it on their site but if you don't have gurenteed delivery by them, they reserve the option to send last leg through usps vs driving it to those on edge of route like me.  So again some will work great, but if on edge of delivery they are a pain.

seems the weather is nice in Japan this time of year so we will make two port visits there
then we will go back to Shenzen, because we forgot some of the other passengers, then off
we go to Korea and a quick visit to the DMZ and wave to some guards, lets take a guess at
what our next stop on the magical mystery tour will be.

All i wanted was a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer and a nice holiday in some cold location
in Newfoundland or similar, to be hosted by a caring and diligent host for a good 12 month
sabbatical

I must contact my travel agent and see what kind of trip this is.


All jokes aside, I have never had any of these issues getting miners sent to Australia,
with both UPS and DHL in the past, but this is really turning me off UPS

I see the firmware for the S9 is now available for download - has anyone taken it apart & inspected the miner spoftware yet?

Do not trust Yobit/HitBTC/C-cex/Poloniex scam exchanges or shady ICO's run by known scam companies like HashCoins/Ambisafe/Bountyhive etc - they WILL scam you:

Use due diligence & do research. Buy the coins, sell the coins - don't invest in stupid shit. If your questions aren't answered - don't touch it.

My S9 Batch 2 has arrived...

So far so good... It's quite warm here atm.

(pic above)

In the Midwest here so we get a lot of different temperatures.  So far I have had good luck to seems to be able to handle the summer heat which is good.  In my mining area I use air from outside push it through miners with big CFM fan's and exhaust the hot air. 

The S9 has done very good with the varying weather.   This week I could have high of low 90's F which is hotter then I like to the lows in the 60's F.   So it is handling  a variety of weather good.

Damnnit... I paid UPS yesterday for fees owed, truck came today with the miner on it and -- driver said it was COD. Showed him the receipt and UPS conf# and doesn't matter 'cause the system still has not been updated for it...

Hopefully by time of the days-end pickup it will have cleared so I can get it today vs Monday.  Grrrrr..........

While we are on the subject of cooling. Anyone tried immersion cooling? Bitfury is getting phenomenal increases. Mineral oil seems inexpensive. 3M make some great but expensive products. IBM even does it now. Has anyone tried it?

Mineral oil and 3M's Novec fluids are totally different things. The higher viscosity and much poorer thermal transfer properties of mineral oils means that great care has to be taken to ensure enough heat is pulled fast enough from the chips. With 3M's thermal xfr fluids, they are thinner than water so flow very well (rather like butane in a lighter) and more to the point, when in the phase-change range (boiling) heat xfr ability goes through the roof because the fluid in contact with the heat source wants very much to stay at the phase-change temp.

That said, oil is still a tempting idea.
