Thread: European shopping from USA online shops

    European shopping from USA online shops

    Hello all. I finally get enough money to buy Panasonic FZ28 digital camera.
    My friend in Sweden is going to order it on his addres, since I use his paypal.

    Now I have some questions:

    Does anyone (who is from Europe) have experience buying from USA online shops. FZ28 in USA is 280 USD, but in Europe over 420 $. If we buy from USA what will hapened with tax. If we buy from some european shops then we dont need to pay any tax as it is already included in the price.
    When ADD 4 GB SD card, adittional battery, car charger, bag then I cant pass in European shops bellow 520$, while all that is only 340$ on Beach Cameras for example. I planned to buy Ikari Laser mouse or G5 logitech, but then price goes up more in space, what is there in USD here is same or even higher in Euros. What if I buy from Amazon.Com?

    Any advice from European buyers?

    I had all sorts of problems buying stuff from the US, the price was cheaper but when it arrived in Germany the customs people opened the package and then charged me the difference between the US price and a typical European price. Now I just buy from pixmania or FNAC, both of them are European companies so there is no extra duty to pay.

    Thanks for Pixmania, now price is little bit cheaper
    just as I would add tax and shipping from usa.

    How about cheaper things that are not available here? Up to 50$?

    What sort of things are you looking for? I usually only buy electronics online, that's why I like Pixmania, they're in every state of the union so it doesn't matter where I am, I buy downloadable music from 7digital.com but everything else I need I go to one of the big cities and just go shopping .
