I think that You guys inside USA are very lucky.
For the last two years Ebay is going WAY mad charging people outside USA
outrageous import charges besides shipping charges.

How about a Rave ENV kit that is $550.00 plus $85.00 shipping AND $202.00
just on import charges. $287.00 is 50% extra over the kit cost.
There is even more outrageous examples like this.

Will you pay those mad numbers if you were outside the USA??
I prefer not to buy at all before paying that much.

I have found some better deals in UK with no import charges and cheaper shiping cost.

It all depends on the country you order from.
In Canada we get duties+ shipping+ handling usually from fed-ex or ups. These shipping companies have charged me extra for duties.

So I try to buy from Canada first

spending time, paying attention

I'll sell you whatever you want for less mark up profit than than. Just send the funds with your shopping list and I will gladly buy and ship for you.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Sounds like more of an import tax that they may be charging then just a ebay mark up?

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I doubt that Ebay, by themselves, will create, charge and levy taxes, duties etc ? They would only adhere to laws and regulations set by the country the item is imported into. If the "receiving" country has things such as white goods / luxury goods import tax, they will levy it.

Right now there is Spartan Vortex auction that starts at $199.00 plus 23.00 shipping plus 78.00 import tax. I would be Paying $300.00 even if the aution ends with 0 bids.
I can get a Vortex unit from Experience RC for $260.00 plus shipping. Total Would be about $285.00

What´s going on with Ebay
What are they thinking?

Please do an easy favor for me:

If you want to sell some heli stuff on Ebay state it as NOT international.
That way I will manage not to pay import charges if you are actually willing to ship outside USA
I have already bought heli stuff from guys that initially state not international shipping. I first ask if they are willing to ship outside USA and if they do I pay the item cost plus shipping and that´s all.
