Shipping to India


What is the shipping cost to India? How do you handle the customs duty/excise that is levied on the goods?
If I order, will my shipment reach my address directly or will I have to go and collect it from some place (like the customs office)? Thanks

Figuring out what your total bill of sale including shipping and handling costs on our web site is easy. (Remember, Insurance is included on your order) . Your order would be delivered to your address.

To see our shipping options and rates, please go to our website and click on the 'Shipping' icon towards the bottom of any product web page.

Add your item(s) to your cart. In the cart screen you will see a shipping calculator. Type in your zip code (for orders delivered in the USA ) or country ( outside the US ) and hit submit.( NO other information is needed ) In the shopping cart screen, you will find your total including shipping rates for your items plus an explanation of our various shipping methods.

Unfortunately we can not offer specific advice on import fees, duty, Customs or taxes that you may be charged when your merchandise reaches you. Please consult your local government import office with any questions regarding this matter. We can not alter the package or billing invoice in any way.

Payment by Paypal

B&H does not accept payment by Paypal from India. Can you reconsider this since it is more convenient .
I personally have used Adorama more than B&H for my purchases because of this.

We are aware of our international customers wanting to use the convenience of Pay Pal for their orders. We are working towards a solution and will make it available ASAP. You can use a bank wire transfer which I can help you with through E-Mail.
