  • My understanding is grabr is to deliver new products. Not a courier service for everything. I think the credit card warning that you posted is the PAIS tax (tough I think that is outdated and too low) warning the person who will pay grabr using an Argentina CC. Not your concern, though must limit the number of Argentina residents who use the service.

    Correct. Also, the 30% is no applied to goods purchased in Argentina, which is what a traveller from Argentina should be requested to buy.


    I have heard good things about Grabr to get stuff into Argentina (mostly from the US), but I have never tried it.

    You are supposed to buy the item using your card, which can be an Argentinian credit card that gets charged also the "impuesto país" for purchases abroad, or a foreign card, as it would be my case.

  • I don’t really remember how Grabr works. If you agree to bring goods in, I assume you aren’t compensated until the buyer’s credit card is charged and the purchase has cleared?


    If that is the case, unless the charge goes through. Could you have filled your luggage allowance with items you aren’t eventually paid for transporting?
