Hi guys,

Does Youshop have any problem sending a phone from US to NZ currently?
I have an invite for Oneplus one and thinking of bringing it in.

I sure hope it works! My Oneplus One is sitting in the Youshop warehouse right now awaiting dispatch.

How much was your delivery charge and did they/will they charge tax?

I'm impressed that NZ Post saw fit to reply to the automated tweet of the thread with all the relevant info.  Man are their social media people on the ball.

I'm expecting tax. 28 for delivery. Will be in the warehouse for longer than it took to get to the warehouse ;)

Thanks guys. Current exchange rate is border line for being taxed. It comes at around 398 dollars NZ depending on which number you use for the exchange rate.

As in "they don't know when a bot is posting?" I guess...

Yes it's the price I don't like on PBtech, I also refuse to use them for yet to be released products in NZ, they charge a dumb amount for a product then drop to just under RRP on release in NZ.
I also don't like how they advertise everything GST exclusive to make it look like they have the best price.

hey mate, congrats on the invite. I got one a few days ago in my email and I got all excited and clicked the link. I think it might have been a spam. I logged into my OPO account and didnt see any invites there. Sent an email to OPO customer service - they were not a helpful bunch at all. So I guess I lost my invite. But if anyone here has any spares floating around, please feel free to ping me :D

All the best with your OPO - would love to hear your thoughts about this flagship killer!!

It's possible your invitation expired. Mine was only valid for 48 hours so I dove right in despite still being happy with my Find 5. I've got a buyer lined up just in case its too huge to handle.
