How does this work exactly?
I have never dealt with foreign toy suppliers before, but a domestic source for a figure I want (Revoltech Rei from Neon Genesis) is out of stock and the only current people selling it for a reasonable amount are out of Japan.
As I read up on shipping, I noticed the "buyer is responsible for all customs/import fees." So, I don't want to buy a $50 figure, ship it for $10, and then end up with like $30 of fees.
So how does it work? Is it based on a percent of the value? Is there a level at which it "flies under the radar?" Are there forms to be filled out?
I've heard many horror stories about customs from foreign board members.
So, any useful info?
