Gearbest Netherland Post same as Banggood NL Direct Mail?

GB has a 0.99$ shipping option "Netherland Post". Using this shipping method, don't i have to worry about EU national import duties (customs, taxes, fees)?

BG had the "NL Direct Mail" option, now called "Direct Priority Mail". With this, EU customers don't pay for import duties. A very powerful and convenient option for shoppers from the EU.

Wondering if GB's option is the same.

I just received a package from GearBest via postnl. It still says China on the coyntry of origin part on the label. But it didin’t get picked up by customs. GearBest may have misprinted the value of the goods on the label though Wink

25 days, that's different then from Banggood. The BG option is much faster and guaranteed without customs trouble.

Maybe GB staff could comment too

GB is generally very slow to ship. Slower than any other Chinese seller I have bought from. I’ve placed an order with GB on 27/12, that was shipped via NL post. The tracking started to work on 8/01(!) saying “The item is pre-adviced”.
