MurrayM:sep11guy: i contacted the website, and they promptly replied :
Thank you for contacting us.
Upon shipment, our company pays for the GST and Import/customs charges. Therefore when goods are delivered to our customers, they shall not pay for any extra fees.
The prices advertised on the website is all you will need to pay.
Please feel free to call our sales hotline to place an order.
What do you think of the above? is this possible ??
Very unusual for a website to do this. Means a lot of extra work for them!
No idea about this shop, but its not uncommon for retailers to collect GST &/or duty at the time of sale. Amazon and several other clothing retailers give you the option to pay taxes upfront, or deal with it yourself if it gets stopped by customs.
