Importing < $1000 means you don't need formal customs declarations and pay import duty - pretty cool BUT When I did my customs course they trainer advised that we wouldn’t be the first to think of frequent shipments of less than 1k to avoid the above and that customs officials were wise to rules.
Basically he said, do it too frequently and for too long and they’ll get you for avoiding customs and back charge you.

Not sure if it was lies to get us to use his company for forwarding but I’m rather confident they’re not stupid.
