Is your Paypal address US or NZ?

 

You may need to create a US paypal account.

 

 

 

I just check that site though, and you'd want to check the local prices IMO.

 

I have a pair of RB3522 on my Xmas list, and I can get them locally (at our local Unichem) for $229 less 20% (they have a sale on)) which is $183.20.

 

That US Ray-ban site has them for $115.50 (US) which is $165.04. Youshop would be a minimum of $20. I'm happy to buy them in NZ for local support.

Thanks - I used NZ PayPal, not sure if it makes any difference though to be honest. Obviously US address from YouShop.

 

I would like to support local community but I do not think they stock them. Never knew Unichem stocked Ray Ban Optical?

Non-export companies are on the lookout for known forwarding companies now.

 

YS being one of them. Generally if its a forwarding agent, its going off shore. So they will cancel orders (try getting ice skates now.. nike have a brand stronghold over bauer etc) if there are regional restrictions.

 

 

 

Lots of the pharmacy stores in NZ have approved reseller status for namebrand. As with sunglasshut etc. http://www.opsm.co.nz/sunglasses/ray-ban

I've found that the pharmacy stores can be a little cheaper than Sunglass Hut etc. They certainly are for the glasses i'm after.

There is pressure on places to not ship to reshippers because it has previously been heavily used by people in the USA to get around state and city sales taxes.

Really annoying a couple of Canadians I know.
