Hey guys!Here's the thing...I wanted to buy an electronic gadget online in Europe and have it sent here to my home in Connecticut, US. I was wondering what is the limit of the package so it goes through US Customs without being processed for importing fees or something like that.Thanks a lot guys!

$0.00 Unlike when you hand carry goods from overseas, there is no duty free allowance when you order goods to be shipped to the US. If the item is dutiable then Customs will collect the duty. They sometimes pass on low value items as the duty may not be worth the cost to collect it.
