    Got the package, after a very long delay. Customs was very uncool. I'm asking for reimbursement of 1/2 of what I was forced to pay by Customs. Which seems fair to me.

    Why ask the seller for a reimbursement of customs tax? He's got no control over it. It's simply the cost of doing international business.

    How much you have been forced to pay?

    I'm sorry for your loss SirRush, but in this case, and this is just my opinion, I don't think the seller has anything to do with the customs you got charged for. It sucks but we all have been there and that's the main reason why many people don't buy anything overseas. We are usually charged a fixed amount of money (20€, 40€ for the process, plus the value added tax (19%, 21%) of the full amount of declared value + sometimes what THEY think it's worth + even the shipping costs, and on top of that depending on what you get, an import tariff.

    It sucks. But it's not the seller's fault, don't get mad at him.

    I agree with the above. It's part and parcel of dealing overseas.

    I purchased my WE4000 from USA a few years ago and had to pay import duty.

    Then write your Congressmen but don't expect the government to get rid of an income source. The US government is in control of customs / import taxes, not the seller, not AmiBay, not the seller's country, and definitely not you.

    I'm sorry if you weren't expecting this but it really is your responsibility to inform yourself and no one else's.

    I think he was refering to the buyer's comment "Which seems fair to me", so both of you think alike.
