last time I checked they were adding DDP to all orders, even under $200, and they wouldn't explain, so I assume they would not "refund" it either

That's terrible. On my order these are the following charges when shipped to the US or the UK:
Price before "DDP" is $225.83 shipped to the US.
Price shipped to the UK is £151.67, or $221.64 USD.
DDP charge is $54.17 shipped to the US
Tax charge is £30.33 shipped to the UK, or $44.31.
It seems extremely disingenuous calling it a DDP charge when in reality there would be no duties or customs, instead we're paying for VAT charge which should be exempt.post #45214 of 515534/28/16 at 1:54pmpost #45215 of 515534/28/16 at 2:54pmpost #45216 of 515534/28/16 at 2:58pmpost #45217 of 515534/28/16 at 3:00pmQuote:Originally Posted by ambyance
just to make sure, the prices are in CAD right?
We use the USD RRP set by the designers themselves, as opposed to the CAD one - as their mandatory exchange rates & markups end up with a CAD retail that is higher than the mandated USD retail exchanged to CAD.
CAD also just too unstable and/or volatile lately, with 6 months between ordering and actual delivery it's just a mess using CAD - sorry for any confusion!
*Canadian clients are automatically discounted 6% of their order total at checkout to counter any exchange commissions you might face through Paypal and/or the bank.post #45218 of 515534/28/16 at 3:25pmpost #45219 of 515534/28/16 at 4:57pmpost #45220 of 515534/28/16 at 5:05pmQuote:Originally Posted by oulipien
ahhhh psyched to see you carry forme d'expression, but the stuff I'm lusting for isn't there! alas.
Yeah, buy will grow each season - the big guns keep their minimums quite high which strangled our self-funded budget opening season.
Next season will see us add a lot more styles for both Forme & Jan-Jan - with that increasing again for SS17.post #45221 of 515534/28/16 at 8:07pmQuote:Originally Posted by ambyance
update on the ottica duties/customs situation.
they said i need to pay the invoice via fedex and they will refund me the amount via OG payment which is my CC.
when i asked them why this happened even though the order is well below 800 usd, they said:
"I inform you that the import taxes are requested from Fedex and not from us and not all the customers are asked to pay for them as the customs controls are random.
Unfortunately these duties are out of our control and we can only refund the customers for them but we cannot avoid that you will receive other import taxes bills in the future, we are sorry."
"customs controls are random"
I am gonna inquire fedex about this.
It sounds like a "service fee". I'd be interested to know what US trade law says about when a carrier can and cannot charge such a fee. There was a discussion of this when the new limit was announced (here). Right at the top someone commented how the new limit only regards customs, not this "service" fee. Although, I can't speak to the accuracy of that claim.post #45222 of 515534/28/16 at 9:00pmpost #45223 of 515534/28/16 at 9:50pmQuote:
Definitely. I didn't mind the initial price I paid and if they were upfront about it I would not have had any issue. Now I feel deceived, and quite frankly like they scammed me out of a measly $50.
I tired emailing them and instead of explaining or actually responding to any of my questions they just repeatedly direct me to their Taxes and Duties FAQ. Not a great way to do business. Won't be shopping there anymore.post #45224 of 515534/29/16 at 4:56ampost #45225 of 515534/29/16 at 5:30am
