    Duty is usually 30 - 40 % if shipped with DHL , UPS , FedEx etc. Shipping starts at 30 - 40 USD . It is trackable and 5 - 7 Day delivery world wide.

    If it coming via USP, HKP , Local Posting services there is no duty for < 50 USD items ( You local Postman will deliver it ). Shipping is slow and a lot of vendors do free shipping.There is no tracking. Like ordering from Dx take 3 months to reach sometime.

    Also avoid undervaluing items , else you might have to visit the customs .

    Hello streetjerk; here are my suggestions, I came across the same situation a couple of times

    To ship materials, or any other thing in fact, you might want to check out the web packling.com, they compare prices to give you a good rate. I never used it for delicate stuff though, that might raise the price up a bit. It also depends on teh size of what you want to send, of course.

    However, when I buy online, I try to find copanies who help me with the shipping too; not too long ago I got a delivery after purchasing at Surplex (http://www.surplex.com/de/start.html) it might be useful if you ever need to buy or sell machines.
