Okay - I just checked prizes for individual packages. Seems it will be between $15 to $20 to Europe - this really depends on exact weight. We would have to add sending it to you. So the best saving would be if several are send from DF to you and not individual ones. But it would save shipping on in Europe. For some countries it could be cheaper - depending what the value is at which they start asking for Tax/VAT.

I wait for people to decide what they prefer. I do have an US address where I could get my set send to and pick it up on my next trip. So no issue for me here.

Thod:

Let me know. Shipping on a $600+ order (today, duh...) from DWF to me was under $25, so I suspect I"m close enough the freight to here is cheap. I am trying to figure out if there is a cheaper way than DWF uses - I think its UPS ground, but I could not select a method when I bought.

LEt me know what you decide.

Nope - 2 pounds is what shows up in the cart. This is an approx. weight. DF tends to be +/- 1 lb - which is accurate enough for sets - but in this case USPS cost is in ounzes. The unpacked entrance is 310g. I expect with packaging it will be above 1 lbs - but a lot below 2 lbs.

I you could take this on, then this might be the simplest solution for European customers. I hope you have PayPal and accept incoming money in your account. All other ways of paying are a pain and would cost a lot more.

When you calculate your cost - take PayPal charges into account. You shouldn't lose out a single cent - but it seems the most cost effective way. DF gift vouchers would be an alternative - but there is a good chance you can only use a single voucher per transaction. That could be a problem.

Just work out how you think you will best handle this - and I will step back. I don't think I can beat your costs. And if I import I will be 100% sure I will incur taxes on 10 sets here. Not a single DF set ever got through without.

tax won't bother me, since i always have to pay custom fees on packages from US (think they marked me).

SInce customs is higher in Germany i would prefer to order with thod together.

Germany should be fine right now - I calculated that $29 is Euro 19.227 (Yahoo Currency Converter) - even assuming some changes how they calculate the exchange rate should be on the save side.

BUT !!

If you try to save and get one for you and one for your friend - you might want to get them send in individual packages. With two of them in one package you will pay Einfuhrumsatzsteuer. Zoll is still free.

For the UK I calculate £17.38 - this is a lot closer to the £18 which is free - but again - a single piece should be free.

My rule of thumb - below $25 I import savely knowing it won't hit taxes - above $50 I know it won't pass them. $35 upwards to $50 is a gamble and you can get lucky - $25-$30 - you better look at the exchange rate.

Seems Germany has right now a bigger safety margin. There are similar numbers for other countries - please look them up yourself.

Thod

PS: If the piece would be $37 as someone mentioned before the official price then we would be in a lot more trouble. $29 should legally just be below the margin when it becomes expensive.

From: www.zoll.de/c0_reise_und_post/b0_postverkehr/b0_geringwertige_sendung/index.html


Sendungen mit geringem Wert
Mit Wirkung vom 1. Dezember 2008 hat sich die Höchstgrenze für die zollfreie Einfuhr von Kleinsendungen auf 150 Euro je Sendung erhöht.

Die Befreiung ist unabhängig von der Person des Versenders und des Empfängers und unabhängig davon, ob es sich um kommerzielle oder Geschenksendungen handelt.

Von dieser Befreiung sind allerdings ausgeschlossen:

Alkohol, einschließlich alkoholischer Getränke,
Tabakwaren,
Parfüm und Eau de Toilette.


Hinweis:

Für die Einfuhrumsatzsteuer bleibt es bei der bisherigen Wertgrenze von 22 Euro. Nur Postsendungen mit Waren, deren Gesamtwert nicht höher ist als 22 Euro, sind vollständig einfuhrabgabenfrei (Zoll und Einfuhrumsatzsteuer).

Kaffee ist von der Verbrauchsteuerbefreiung ausgeschlossen, d.h. für Kaffee wird auch innerhalb der 22 Euro-Grenze die Kaffeesteuer erhoben.

thanks for youe effort with german customs, but "Einfuhrumsatzsteuer" is not applied to packages that come from
European union countries, so there will be no additional cost if you redirect it for me from the UK.

So as stated i would like to get one for me and another one for my friend and they can be send together.

greetings

Green_Knight is right. No "Einfuhrumsatzsteuer" if the package comes from another EU-country like UK.

The issue is

It also shouldn't be charged on a package from the US as long !! as it is below the limit. The above bit is for importing packages from ANY country to Germany.

Green Knight says he feels like a marked man. Well - the issue is a DF package more or less always will be above the limit. I doubt he ever has a package below 150 Euro which causes a double whammy.
But a single entrance is below 22 Euro - therefore it will be completely free of Einfuhrumsatzsteuer and Zoll.

If I import it to the UK I will have to pay VAT (the equivalent to Einfuhrumsatzsteuer) as 10 sets will be above the UK limit. By importing it via the UK you actually pay what you try to avoid and legally don't have to pay (assuming you only get single ones from the US).

I hope this makes it clearer

I do have paypal and can accept incoming money. I"m also getting a large shipment from DWF on my own - I've asked Jeff to hold it pending this outcome.

Thod et al:

I just talked to Jeff. he says that combining whatever Thod orders with my current order won't save any US postage, so I had mine shipped. Please advise me exactly what will be coming my way, and where in (UK?) I need to re-ship.

I have a PayPal account. What I will do is re-address the package sent me from DWF to the Euro address. My assumption is that DWF guys to a better packing job than I would anyway. Then I'll have postage put on the package and email the cost to Thod, who can PayPal me. Once its in, I'll send the package off. We aren't going anywhere for the holidays, so there should be minimal delay.

Cheers

When you order DF products, there is no VAT included so it's normal to pay it (19.6% in France) when your order arrives in your country.
However, we also pay a douane tax.
In France below 228€ it's 56€, beyond 228 it's 96€ more (until 770 I believe, I've already posted the french douane link, search for your country conditions)
We will be better customers the day we'll have this euro distributor...

If you receive a package from a friend (not a enterprise) there are few chances they stop it and tax you.
You will avoid VAT tax not the douane in this case... but more the package is enormous more you pay...
