I've searched and read innumerable threads about this, and I still don't have a definitive answer. If someone could point me to a thread or could provide some first hand experience receiving EU shipments in the U.S., I'd be most appreciative. I'd like to buy a pair of shoes from a EU seller. Is there a percentage of the stated value I'd be assessed upon delivery? I've read of buyers who had NO duties, and others that were shocked by the size of the imposed duty. A huge fee might be a deal breaker for me. Also, what liabilities might I be assuming with such a transaction? I know about the $200.00 threshold for charges. What if the seller undervalues the items? Is there a potential hazard in doing that? I'm simply trying to avoid any hassles. I have a nervous condition and would prefer to actually wear my shoes before I die. Thanks in advance for any responses.
