The Netherlands

Post by bartje » Thu Jul 22, 2010 9:37 am

I've ordered twice now and received them in about 3-4 days. Awesome speed in my opinion.

Luckily, no import tax bills so far. But beware with overseas shipping - you don't pay EU import tax when you pay SparkFun, you pay US tax. So potentially they can charge you as much as 19% + a base fee of about €20.

But then again, I'm lucky >:) so I'll just keep on ordering.

There's no additional details as to what that 'delay beyond our control' was, and I have no idea why it departed Indianapolis twice, but it arrived plenty fast.

Holdup in customs probably means I'll get an import duties bill later. I should charge them for taking so long instead ;)
