I've bought Ebay stuff from all over the world using Paypal & not had any issues.
Speedway bike parts from Sweden & Romania, Lotus parts from England, aircraft parts from Canada & Barracuda parts from Mexico. All transactions went smooth with delivery right to my door & I paid import duty one time.

I also buy from all over the world with no issues  huh The problem is this company will only ship via priority mail and listed as the sale value for customs  sad I have no problem with a company having rules for trading  smiley it just would be as much for postage as the wheel costs and the import duty could be about half that value again  cry

So Sid I agree with you that normally it isn't a problem but second hand parts from the USA normally cause me problems  cry

Sid... shipping into the US and the customs policy in the US is way different than all of Europe and most of the rest of the world.  When we shipped Max's motors to Germany it cost Hartmut over $700 in fees just to be able to recieve them to work on them.

the German custom tried to charge me tax for the two record trophies, which Stainless had sent (thanks again for this - they are looking so great in the show case)

they asked me for the order, bill or kind of invoice, paper of the money transfer....it needs me 45 minutes to explain....you can't buy them....there is no bill....no payment....you only get them when you have set a record at the Bonneville Salt Flats....

Also....about 25 percent of the "worth" which was sent, you have to pay custom declare tax....depends what it is...there will be add another tax.....and sometimes they are not using the cost in the states...the tax are based on how much it cost in Germany.....I call it, printing money rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes

Well Pork Pie,
That's what State Socialism will do. A few Working Stiffs have to pay for the Benefits of the Many who are Not.

Luckily there are still many left, who are working very hard to prevent this from happening to this Beautiful United States of America.
God Bless the USA and ALL the Freedoms we have here !! Right Sparky !!
