PSA - these guys have starks for around ~$265 shipped. Ordered a black melange on Wed and it was delivered to NY on Monday.

got my customs charge in the mail yesterday from fedex. it was ~ $75, which is pretty high considering the stark was $265. hopefully i'll be able to wear it soon, it's still 70s here.

What if you refuse to pay the customs?

Unless the company you ordered from made you aware of this before hand I would not pay the customs fees.

Thoughts?

hahaha, i don't know. fedex would come after me? stomp on all my packages in the future?

maybe someone else who ordered from end can refuse to pay and see what happens. the bill came several weeks after i had already received the stark.

Unless you signed for the letter they can prove you received it. lookaround.gif

There are two things here.

First, customs fees are an excise tax. They are not levied by Fedex or any other shipper, they are levied by the government. You have to pay your taxes. It is the law.

Second, what most of the charges will be for will not be for customs but instead for "brokerage", which is the fee paid by fedex to a third party clearing house that ensures your items clear the border. You can decide to not pay this amount, but the result will be more or less the same as if you don't pay your visa bill - they'll just assign it to a collection agency and it'll eff with your credit rating.

I have nothing against paying the tax as long as I was made aware of this before hand, if they drop the ball on me that is bad business. IMO

they shipped it with signature required. i signed a release to let them leave it at my door. the customs fee makes the stark price from end ($265+15+$75=$355) similar to mr porter ($345).

it's probably my first and last stark. the purple melange is sweet though.

this is exactly true, it is a brokerage fee. when i got the bill, there was tons of paperwork with it.

Do you really think you can import stuff from abroad without paying taxes?

This is pretty much common sense.

 

75 dollars tax for a 265 seems pretty average to me.

I usually get taxed 20-30% of the items worth when full value is written.

What is the customs limit in your country? In my country, the customs limit is $34 for everything except for books. Books are VAT and duty free. If the item is worth more than $34, I must pay 25% of the value + shipping and 10% of the value of the item, shipping and the 25% VAT.

damn dingus I'll never complain about taxes again...

post #2008 of 5079
The problem isn't with a tax being applied but with the sellen not informing the buyer of the third party tax that will come in the mail. plain.gif
post #2009 of 5079
Lol. It's not the shippers responsibility to let you know the taxes of your own country.

Pretty standard fare when ordering from international stores, a better way to put it is if you are a buying something, you should be making an informed purchase. End has a poor reputation when it comes to customs already as well
