I want to order goods online and have them delivered to Singapore - how is it with customs clearance? Do I pay GST?

I think there should not be any tax and so long as it isn't illegal it'll pass the customs. I order several books and novelty items from abroad before and it came through without any problems.

I've ordered nutiotional supplements from the US without any hassle.

You can import up to S$400 worth of merchandise (alcohol and tobacco excluded) in a package and not be liable for GST.
