Had one of my bits arrive at Zen and can still mark down.

What’s the latest on marking down? I want to order something but as it’s reasonably pricey I don’t want to order then find out they won’t mark down

Seems to be account specific. Others will do it but you will. Need to pay a comission, E.g. White rabbit express.

Is there a online calculator for custom fees to show much you may need to pay?, if not anyone who can mark down help a fellow fuker to grab something cheap.

Put my first order through Zen last week or so, marked it down and it’s been dispatched via EMS.

Anyone having or had issues contacting VCstorejp? Ordered something on shopify but wanted to speak to him about marking down but not getting a response on watsapp or IG

Just make sure the item isn’t marked as a gift. I’ve had stuff from JP, Germany and the US in the past month and been fine as the items have been below £135. Below that and they assume you’ve already paid VAT with the retailer (which the retailer is supposed to collect, but not all do).

From the Gov website:
Goods worth £135 or less in total
If you bought the goods yourself and they are not excise goods, the seller will have included VAT in the total you paid.
It’s why it’s a flawed system. But yeah, as long as it’s not marked as a gift (which then lowers the limit to £39) you’re fine if under £135.

Gift under £39, normal under £135 - but this doesn't take into account that VAT would be due on the under £135 parcel, so presumably that is something that might get checked or need to be declared on the label? Gift under £39 would not be liable for VAT, and they would need to assess the true value somehow (hence remove tags).

Order arrived pretty fast not using EMS, but airmail. Dispatched on the 8th and arrived today with no issues and no fees. Item was 20,000 yen market as gift but value declared.
