    Default Group Buy from Digikey - Anybody interested

    Hello,

    I'm planning a $350-500 order on Digkey in the next 10 days. Would anybody be interested in clubbing orders together to share the shipping charges?

    Mail me here:
    biozen AT gmail

    Cheers,
    Mohit.

    Have you guys tried element14 . I somehow find it cheaper/more reliable.

    Shipping is Rs 200. And prices shown are MRP in INR, so no extra customs / duties.

    Also they have local line which i can call and trouble them anytime. Some items are actually at lower prices than local vendors.

    Digikey/Mouser have little more variety/cheaper in US but element14 turns out cheaper and faster in India.

    Give them a try sometime.

    My order is close to $500.

    @Vikas - Yes I have bought stuff from Element14 and they are really good and reliable. But there are certain parts that are only available on Digikey so dont really have an option for this particular order. Thanks

    I havnt ordered it yet. I plan to place the order today. So if you want send me the list sometime today it will be ok. Also, do you know if they charge any custom duty or octroi additional to $40 shipping and handling charges when the parts come in India?

    This is my first time ordering from Digikey to India

    If you can hold on a little more, I'll send you my list.

    If the delivery address is Mumbai, then octroi will be charged over the customs duty. However, if you can bill/deliver it to Delhi, then since octroi isn't applicable here, just the customs duty will have to be paid. You can get it shiped to Vikas' address and then he can divide the order and ship it elsewhere. Octroi savings ~4-5%.

    Lemme know.
