Hello to you all,

When I buy from china or usa or whatever country we all have to pay taxes for importing. I Don't know how it is in other country's but over here (holland) we have to pay taxes for the goods AND shipping cost. And here comes the problem. Most of the suppliers don't specify the shipping cost and just print the total amount incl shipping on the invoice and bill. The tax team over here asks TNT,DHL,UPS what the shipping would be and they put it on top of the total price.
So its goodbye profit. I just bought an order of Nintendo ds with MKenterpice and with this additional shipping coast they are now more expensive then a shop on the corner :(
How do you guys deal with this or is it just a problem over here.

Hi,
I am not sure whether your this answer applies to you,
but for me I use ordinary post, and avoid courier like tnt, dhl, ups or whatever.
I never get tax when I use ordinary post, but whenever i use those courier mentioned above I paid taxes most of the time.

Try that !

Most of the company's I deal with in china and usa do not support regular mail. They only sent through courier.
thanks anyway for the reply.

hi maybe you can try, if you supplier can ship as a gift of low value or as a returned good of low value, supplier in DHgate do that, but becarefull chose a seller with a high trust score and mostly read their feedback a chose a one who looks honest.

hey, how about MKenterprise, is it good? I am thinking in try it.

Never buy unless you know the exact costs. I would never buy with blind shipping ever!

Nintendos WIIs, PS3s, Ipods are in my opinion a lost cause.
