Ordering kendamas from America
« on: 20 August, 2017, 21:49:24 »
Not sure if anyone else has had this ..
Ordered a krom deluxe quad from kendama usa I got charged royal mail handling fee ...
Ordered one from yancy no charges ordered 2 more from yancy and I got a handling fee
Quote from royal mail :
All goods entering the UK from outside the European Union which are above the thresholds are liable for customs charges, however it is up to the discretion of Border Force whether these are applied.
Just warning you guys ordering from America I feel a bit stung

Yeah, it's a bit of a lottery. There are plenty of stories of being lucky or unlucky. The worst thing though, isn't having to pay the import tax, it's having to pay the handling fee for the import tax!

Be prepared, everyone.  ???

I've ordered from the US a handful of times, and luckily only been stung once. Had to pay £18 to pick up 2 kendamas. Ouch. It is a complete lottery as Void says so just cross your fingers or try and source more locally - kendama.cz and kendama-france.com both have a decent supply and will probably get to you quicker.
Or get a Royal here from the UK!

We started to stock a range of Krom, Sweets. Kendama usa over on our shop

Items are shipped out from Prague,cz
we also hand paint our own brand - Aura Kendama
plays like an all round kendama... good for most tricks

I also travel a couple times to UK each year so can meet up in the London Area
