  1. The shipping cost on ebay to Mexico is determined by the size and price. Also if over $50US there will be import fees added based on the declared amount on the international declaration form. Se example
  2. Doubt Aduana in Mexico checks ebay. They would check Mexican sources if in doubt. That is why an invoice should be inside the package and a standard international customs declaration should be on the outside/
  3. The difference between debit credit card fraud and debit card fraud Credit card Bank freezes card, issues a new card and investigates. You have not lost a single peso until the bank finishes their investigation. Debit Card Bank freezes card, issues a new card and investigates. Your money is lost until the bank finishes their investigation. That is why all financial experts advise not using a debit card for purchases.
  4. Maybe they have points on the ccard they can use. I never pay cash If I can use my BBVA card. I filled my 20 gallon tank 3 times last year with points. Well over $4000 in gas paid by using my card for everything
  5. You paid duty on the value of the item Aduana determined it to be. Obviously their search determined the retail value to be more than you paid. Question: Was there an invoice for the purchase price from a legitimate retailer attached to the Item? I have imported many things from many countries and never had a problem when an invoice from a legitimate company was attached to the package with the official international customs declaration form.
  6. Items under $50 have no duty, If over that Amazon will collect the estimated duty and refund any difference at a later date
  7. Pete a solar system will not work if the grid is down unless it has a properly installed battery backup to disconnect the system from the grid in the event of power loss. The invertor stops producing when it senses no power from the grid. If it still sent power to the grid a lineman could be electrocuted while working on a presumed dead power line.
  8. There is a very large number of young Mexican's with money. There has been for a long time. Visit any upscale restaurant in GDL at 9 at night and it will be packed with them.
  9. It is actually named mi Bodega Aurrera
  10. Chopo is the highest price lab lakeside. And they are not without mistakes. There are labs in Chapala that do not cater to gringos that are less expensive.

  11. Very few menu choices all seafood. Lots of young people with money ordering drinks at sunset time. Closes at 8PM Service good. A bit pricy.
  12. Technically yes and SIMAPA has pipas

  14. All the various websites mentioned extrapolate their forecast using Guadalajara information. That is why you can sometimes click on a "Chapala" forecast and it says it is raining here and actually Chapala is under clear skies and at the same time it is raining in GDL. Even Conagua the official Mexican government forecast is usually wrong. https://smn.conagua.gob.mx/es/
  15. The exchange rate for international purchases and foreign ATM transactions is set by Visa® or MasterCard®, depending on your card's logo. This exchange rate is either the wholesale market rate or a government-mandated rate set every day—except weekends, Memorial Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day—Visa and Mastercard calculate the rate for the next day's transactions You can check the actual exchange rates here https://www.mastercard.com/global/en/personal/get-support/convert-currency.html https://usa.visa.com/support/consumer/travel-support/exchange-rate-calculator.html?amount=100&fee=0&utcConvertedDate=&exchangedate=04%2F27%2F2022&fromCurr=USD&toCurr=BYN&submitButton=

  20. Actually the forecast shown on Ajijic weather is for the Guadalajara airport. Can't count the number of times it was pouring in Guadalajara and at lakeside it was pure sunshine.
  21. Any bets that the Guadalajara airport forecast will be a far different event than lakeside? Even the Mexican government forecasts for lakeside are rarely accurate while at the same time being very accurate for Guadalajara. Conagua is showing a 5% chance of rain today for Chapala. Impossible....
  22. You would know in seconds if you called the number. Quicker than waiting for an answer on a weboard
  23. first if at all possible get the insect and take it with you to a local clinic. The Drs. will know what is the best treatment as there are different types of scorpions. There are different specific medicines. If at all possible do not take anything before going to the clinic as it could make it harder to treat you. If you must take something many people use Benadryl liquid https://www.farmaciasguadalajara.com/antihistaminico-benadryl-jarabe-120ml-1020455
