I want to give my used iPhone X to friend in Thailand but Covid has delayed my return so I am looking into shipping this instead…thinking of DHL and prepaying tax on $200 value in the hope this will sail through Customs.  Any suggestions ?

Anyone except the company that you mention.

I do not live in Bangkok, but on at least one shipment I was told that I had to go to Bangkok to pay the 'tax'.

Here, they have a reputation for asking for receipted payments.

Try UPS or any other courier. FedEx whatever.

 

The problem will be the battery.

Most will not ship batteries.

You can ship products containing batteries with FedEx only.

I've bought stuff on Evilbay and they use the pre-paid customs service as part of their global shipping - I think they use DHL.

 

Had probably ten items come through from the US and UK with no problems from Thai customs.  Value ranged from US100 to US5,000 and were as small as a watch movement to as big as a kitchen rubbish bin.
