Excuse me... I wanna buy a laptop on Amazon. But I have zero experience with international shipping and customs stuff. To any experienced users out there, other than gst and shipping costs, are there any other charges? Any paperworks?

Amazon shipping will handle end to end till your doorstep including the custom charges. Amazon will include it in your shipping fees.

amazon only pays for the tax but not permit.
it's 50-50% that your item will be held by the authority
honestly i dont think it's worth it to import a laptop

Need to know oso, if the product has included the shipping fees and import fees. Is it all the money I need to pay, no extra charges?
