For those of you in the US that have been hit with duties/taxes- how were you informed of this?

Fedex and DHL will bill you after delivery.
UPS and USPS are COD.

Austerity boot boys. Here are the new mock up shots. Other than the wing appearing to be off line somewhat which I've raised with Pepe, I think we could be good to go. Thoughts please?

Yep, it looks great to me, as long as the wingtip will be properly aligned! Thanks again for organizing this!

Tried to shop the austerity boots in dark brown, to see how they would look. It didn't turn out well, but for the people who'd like an indication:

Hello, This is a follow up to my previous post regarding the UPS total fees of $131.13. I tracked down the number you need to get this info. The regular customer line will not do, you need to contact their supply chain mgmt line, since they handle all the import deliveries. Their number is (866) 493-7140 option 2. Anyways, the break down is that $124.13 was import duties and $7 dispersement fee, whatever that means. I asked why so high, and she said that it was based on the declared value of the shoes ($331). She noted that shoes and clothes are hit with high import fees. This means that the fee was 38% of the declared value! OK, so I am puzzled as to why others in the US have gotten hit with much lower fees, including people who have ordered MTO, which you would think also has high declared value. Any ideas? I am posting this just to warn others that you *may* be hit with a high import fee. Are there anyways to avoid these fees? I am a participant in the hatchgrain MTO, but might have to reconsider. Thanks!

I just put in random numbers and got ~$30, which is relatively to the $42 I paid.

 

No idea how the hell you had +$100. I don't even think they can charge up to 38% on anything?!

 

Sucks so bad man.
