Ebay and Amazon can breathe a sigh of relief – maybe. The planned “service fee” tax announced by the Israel Postal Company earlier this week has been modified. What was originally a minimum 34.80 NIS “service fee” upon the receipt of any package from overseas will no longer affect packages shipped via the internet. The caveat is that said internet packages must be valued under $50 and weigh less than two kilograms.

The fee will still affect all packages shipped via regular mail and will be enforced even if the package is exempt from customs charges.

The additional service fee will be effective as of January 2011. The receiver of the package will be responsible for this additional cost.
