    Yeah but imagine if you bought it brand new and then get the fee?

    But yeah I'm jealous looking at other countries that spend a lot less money on their collections. :<


    "imagine?" XD are you kidding? I almost only have pre-orders lol

    And even then I kind of bite down on it and accept it, but I'm way more angry about having to pay for a bargain item I bought just because it was cheap in the first place, and having a big fat unnecessary fee slapped on it OTL

    CrimsonPumpkin5年前#3377988Oh woah! Thank heavens I live in Colombia and I don't have to pay custom taxes when I purchase figures from Japan, even when I use EMS O_O I didn't know this situation was so bad in other countries.
    Usually here you have to pay customs when the box is too big or you have a lot of items inside a package (more value and insurance) but the amount to pay is not so absurd!


    Oh wow, I thought most countries in South America had a pretty rough situation with costums! :O You should read stories about your close-by countries Argentia or Brazil!

    AP-kun5年前#3377972Omg so true and so painful !

    Jep. :/

    mikki-malu5年前#3377978We have 1000usd/month free-of-tax limit. Figures aren't cheap, especially with the recent price jump and rouble drop but at least we don't have to pay extra to the customs.
    Imposing taxes on individuals so that local businesses could import the same goods and sell them at X times the price to those same individuals is a federal rip-off :(


    Oh so they either register your address or name and then you can import max. 1000USD? That's pretty neat actually, even if I would buy whatever I want I wouldn't spend that much a month on figures or other merchandise because of budgetting/saving. ;)

    Whenever the prices are way better including taxes, shipping and fees to buy on the other side of the world, why would I ever buy locally? As harsh as it sounds...

    Kitah5年前#3377981I've spent almost as much on Shipping + customs as whole orders before... nothing will beat when I was totally expecting my parcel.. and ended up recieving a £60 custom charge... and the shipping cost me £40... never still everything in your private warehouse into one order.. definitely if wallscrolls are involved. NEVER AGAIN!
    :'(


    I also had multiple times crazy charges. :'( But it's still beter for me to have a huge package every once in a while instead of having a lot of seperate packages (because of the starting fee).

    Maakie5年前#3374717Oh, I thought Russia also got customs. :O
    When it comes to Europe, there have been talks about an Europe-Asia free trading route for soooo long, but still no concrete plans. Maybe in the future, one day, collecting will get cheaper (or actually get the normal prices) for Europeans!
    You know, they take that last sentence of you the other way around. We have resellers in the Netherlands that can import the items for you, so it's not seen as unique (even though you pay top price at those resellers).
