If you want to ship a phone or anything to Pakistan you should keep one thing in mind that its not going to be easy and cheap. Shipping costs to Pakistan are expensive and so is the duty you will need to pay in your country.
You will be paying shipping cost + custom duty when you ship a phone from United States to Pakistan.
- Phone Cost: = $200
- Customer Duty (at the rate of 53%) = $106
- Shipping Cost for 1KG box (DHL/FedEx) = $120
- Total Cost = $426
So you will be paying $426 for a $200 phone, which is not worth sending a phone from United States, you can buy a phone for lot less than that in Pakistan. Please note that the amounts mentioned above were estimates and can be changed, you should make sure before proceeding, follow below mentioned links to determine the exact costs according to the package size/weight and price.
Shipping a Phone directly from Ebay / stores via USPS:
They will ship it via USPS (United States Postal service), USPS will deliver it to Pakistan Postal services in Pakistan and from there it will be their duty to ship the phone to your home address. In normal process they will call you on your contact number and will ask you to come to post office to clear the item from customer by paying the duty. It doesn’t matter whether its a $10 item or $100, you will have to pay the duty so you will go to the post office and get your package after paying the duty.
The process mention above will work if you are lucky, sadly your package will be long stolen before you will get it. If you’re package contains a mobile phone or electronics then there are more chances that you will not get your mobile phone, it will be lost or stolen so do not think about shipping a cell phone via USPS or any Ebay seller who will use USPS as shipping service. Its the cheapest shipping method from USA but not reliable.
Shipping a phone via a relative/friend procedure and cost:
Its cheap but as mentioned above, not recommended so do not waste your time and money on sending an electronic item via USPS. However still if you want to check the rates and shipping time follow below mentioned link
DHL is very reliable but extremely expensive shipping service. They only use express international courier services which can cost you around $100 for a Kilogram package or maybe more.

Same as DHL, FedEx is also extremely expensive and doesn’t worth when you want to ship an item from USA to save some money.
