I don’t really think we pay much more that the USA Customers. Remember the price you see on their websites is the price before they add their sales tax (net price) which is done at the till unlike here and the UK were we see the gross price. There’s ‘Sales taxes’ is different amount for each state as well.
So we get sucked in think oh it’s so much cheaper but of course it’s not really and we end up paying our VAT on it when it gets into the UK. Then there’s the Admin charge of £8 by the Royal mail plus you have to facture in the exchange rate as well. Don’t forget you’ll pay more in postage costs as well. So you really need to add it all up first.
Far cheaper to import from the EU or China.
