I just bought a circuit board made in and shipping from mainland China. It is shipping via UPS or Fed EX, be in the US in four to five days. I have shipped parts back and forth from lots countries. I am familiar with customs brokers and commerical invoices, etc, but I have never need to pay any duties personally. How does it work with small single item packages? Is UPS or Fed EX just going to clear it and then send me a bill? Am I going to have to contact a customs broker for one 8oz package?
Added: the board cost is around $1k .
