Unexpected duane costs - costi dogana inaspettati

Postby Alex Microsmeta » Fri Sep 22, 2017 4:45 pm

One of my friends, who has bought, after my suggestion, a 108 € HomTom smartphone (adding 5 euro EXTRA for fast shipment) has been charged of an enormous 45 Euro tax fee for duane costs in Austria (Vienna) !! Could Gearbest do something to help him?

Thank you!

I sadly doubt Gearbest can. The price you pay from Gearbest.com is exl. import taxes. If your government has import tax laws, there's not much you can do to bypass them. I suggest avoiding priority lines, and using "..... un/registered" with a EU country name (ex. belgium unregistered) shipping as it usually avoids the toll. However you may be required by law to contact your toll and report the purchased item and pay the tax. That is up to you.

Have a nice day! :)
