How are you ordering this. I suppose I need to find some long lost relatives in aussie to sort one out for me.
Has anyone been hit for GST/duty while importing these?

Was your one sent in the post and you were charged GST that way, or were you bringing one into the country through the airport?

Unfortunately there's not much you can do about it. It's subject to 12.5% GST, and if they want you to pay, you have to pay, simple as that. As they said, you could put whatever price on the declaration, but if they know what it is you're still out of luck!

Glad you're enjoying it though, looking forward to getting one myself.

Come on now.. $100 isn't realistic. Maybe if it were 500-800 they might have charged less, but $100 is pretty stupid price to put tbh.

This is becoming silly. Of course you are required to pay GST upon entry, same as in any store in NZ when you buy anything. Participating in an arrangement where you under-value an item to save GST can easily add penalties and confiscation of the product, so if you buy an item overseas, the local GST is part of the purchase cost. It's as simple as that.

it arrived at the international mail centre, and then DX picked it up. i then get a letter from DX saying that they cannot send me the parcel until i contact customs. i did, they told me that the package is an ipad and therefore there is unpaid gst, i was like sweet whatever ( i couldnt care less, i just wanted my ipad) so i went to the customs office on anzac street and paid my taxes :)
after that, called up DX, checked with them that everything is sweet, it was, so i went and picked it up from their place near the airport.

simple and easy
