I created an amazon order where the total price came to $380nzd.   Which , is under the $400 where customs charges for gst and admin costs. 

But, amazon have added about $90 in 'import fees deposit' .

So, given my order is under $400, would I get a full refund of that amount? Or, do amazon just pass that on to customs anyway?

dolsen: You should automatically get it back according to other people on here however, here's one of my orders from 2nd October. I haven't seen a refund yet.

Import Fees Deposit NZD 88.85
Total for This Shipment: NZD 452.12

Just an update on this. I received an email on Saturday (4/1/14) stating that they had processed my refund and it would appear on my credit card in 2-3 days. I have received a refund on 88.85NZD on my CC so glad to have the money back. Although not too much of an issue, they did have $88 of my money for 3 months when there was no way it should have been charged based on the value of the transaction. Having said that, I wouldn't be complaining if they got it wrong and had to top up the duty / customs fees...
