Folded and made an amazon.jp account. Got the base set and the spinner/ trackball controller. Just before committing to my order, I found out amazon.jp adapted that absolutely retared practice of charging you import sales tax like it's any of their business whether I pay it or not. That's a cool 40 Eurobucks out of nowhere... :problem:
Still bought it, of course.

Huh? I assumed it's because they've gotten tired of having packages sent back to them because customers were incapable of picking them up from the customs office in time... anyway, **** them.

It's much easier this way. They usually ship by DHL. Takes about 3 days.

I buy stuff from the US via eBay & have to pay the duty at checkout but it's better facing a nasty surprise 2 weeks later 8-)

The German customs office close to my home will just pass along every second package. For the last big shipment of SNES games from Japan (worth about 100 bucks?) I didn't have to pay any import tax...
