If receiving more than one parcel from the same supplier make sure that you have separate invoices and payments for each parcel. If each invoice/payment is below the limit then you will be safe. They just happened to open the invoices on my 2 parcels (arrived into Aust together) and noticed the credit card slip with the one payment exceeded the limit. Bazinga, I ended up paying duty. They told me if I had made 2 separate payments then it is considered 2 different parcels. It doesn't happen all the time but you can get caught.
