Seems like it.
I never once said he was ripping me off. I just stated the fact that it was a ridiculous price to pay.

Done with the insults? Or is your maturity level that low? :)
According to Scott, he explained it to you in a follow up mail. You then still found it necessary to make your post on here for all to see. It benefits no one.
It does do something though, and that's tarnishing his rep.
Anyway, play it off as 'just stating a fact'.

Please don't talk about tarnishing someones rep when you are acting like 2 year old.
Next time I will be sure to PM you should I want to voice my opinion on a public forum.
Have a good day!

Just my 2c worth and an idea that I think may help allot of people who have 0 idea on the breakdown of what it costs to import an item (myself included up until recently).

Create a simple FYI thread that gives a layman's terms breakdown on what the full import costs look like using 3 examples. For instance tech, food and clothing items as all 3 are seen differently by SARS.

It would educate allot of people and also possibly bring in more business as ALOT of us are clueless on importing unless you have actively made a point of asking around on duties, handling fee's etc.

It may be some admin to do but I would definitely appreciate something like that 👌

There was a blog post in the past about the percentages for item type, but maybe it's time for another one.

Hasn't changed much.

I can't get much more granular than that unfortunately, there are so many variables involved it's not possible to give an example that will apply broadly enough to mean anything.

eg: in your request above you gave 3 categories, the SARS tariff sheet with the different categories items fall into is 99 chapters and 660 pages long....

Hi all, sorry for the lack of updates, was one hell of a month! Still going strong for all import, export and local shipping needs, hit us up:


Biggest news is I've finally figured out a way to do costing breakdowns on quotes that should give a bit more clarity regarding our costings and the price of imports :)

Scott

PS: going to be closed Aug 30th and Mon Sep 2nd, will remind closer to the time

PPS: clearing locally held stock: [Sale] - Amazon Echo and Echo Dot | Audio / Video

We've been hard at work this morning to clear the backlog and everyone should be replied to.

Normal operations have been resumed, thanks for your patience!

Despite the chaos around me right now things are slowly returning to normal, and the exchange rate has improved quite a bit so get those orders in!

@ScottulusMaximus Thank you for your professional speedy service. I was able to return my item to Amazon and got my full refund. Much appreciated!
