Bought some computer gear from Ebay and was going to ship to a friend in CA and have them shop to me. But the items were from a store that sells on Ebay and would incur CA sales tax - about US$33 with free shipping. And then there's the cost of sending it to NZ from CA.
Instead shipped to Youshop with free shipping and no sales tax.
And I have just cleared the item with Youshop and the shipping to NZ is NZ$28 so that's a much better deal.
Nice saving this time.
