Dear Import tax officer I have to admit I don't like you very much. Somehow you end up charging 40% on top of the original price. Which leaves our customers with a nasty surprise and bittersweet taste.
If you are living in the USA or Australia you probably don't know what we are talking about and you don't need to worry. However for those in Canada, Europe, Asia and New Zealand I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about.
As you know we don't base our prices on standard retail by marking up x 3. If we did then you know we could include these prices from the start. I'm sorry about that. But I'm also not sorry because those prices are a rip off.
So after weeks of researching we worked it out. We calculated and spoke with experts. As you know we ship direct from our factory to the end customer and this became incredibly helpful.
From now on we will include the fees and taxes so that you can prepay them and know the exact cost. YAY!! To be fair we've absorbed some of these fees into our profit margin so that you can still afford our products. I know that for a lot of people this is a relief. While we can't eliminate taxes we can definitely reduce them.
I hope that this makes sense and can put you at ease to know the there will be no nasty surprises and that you can look forward to enjoying your purchase!
