If they were shipped to the states, then to MWeston and then to Canadian customers, it may be a way to avoid people getting hit by customs fees.

Erm, it would certainly hit Michael with gigantic custom fees.


Your methods are just moving the fees to different people. There is no way to avoid them aside from luck (aka busy day at customs).

Yeah I can see how that works.


Perhaps from another angle then. A large number of items going through one person may be vastly more efficient for costs. There are two associated fees, one is a processing fee and one is the actual customs fee. A shitty shipping company like UPS will have a $30 fee on top of everything else. If the processing fee was on one larger shipment instead of many smaller shipments it would be cheaper overall.


Still, I have an address in the states and I can probably send an underling to fetch a package and smuggl.. urr, I mean deliver it. =)

For Canada, the pandora should be under 8471.30.00 00 (Portable automatic data processing machines, weighing not more than 10 kg, consisting of at least a central processing unit, a keyboard and a display)


This category is duty free.

That's similar to what its coming in under regarding the US as well, and duty free. All items are duty free, cases, extra parts, SDHC cards, TV Outs etc.

Regarding a Pandora with no keyboard:

Is there any good reason why the above would be more worth taxing than the current Pandora?

Wow. :blink: I must admit, I have no idea if that's also the case over here or not...

Yuck, I just had a Gemei A330 returned from the UK. Your customs put a duty on it for more than the guy paid for it. The Beatles meant every word about the Tax Man.


Here's the US HSC code for the Pandora.


8471.30.01 00

It might be duty free, but it won't be tax & processing free.

Just to be sure, how do I check up if my order is still in the system? I'm always insecure about such matters.


Happy that the day is finally getting here, :) .

the pandora is.... naked!


I'm very glad the pandora actually has a keyboard

It is sure one of those days dear pandora wakes up and go to work and just then...oh well...gasp, it can still be used, maybe touch screen keyboard?


Touch? She will wake out of such nightmare! :D :D

I wonder when EvilDragon informs us more about Pandora's progress.


Has production already started or did Pandora encounter problems..?

I think our customs get threatened by anything coming into the country more complicated than a rock. They figure it might unnecessarily confuse and alarm the British public. Keep your unholy magic and devilry out of our country, ya'hear!
