I got an lv1 dynasty waffle from p8nation and the lad sent it as the marker was only worth $100 so the import tax was £12 :sneaky:
I have considered this as I’ve done it for other things, but if something goes wrong does it mean you aren’t covered?

If undervalued then the postage insurance will only cover the declared amount

Pay by PayPal etc and you have comeback on the amount you paid vs the amount they declared, but if you ask them to under declare then you have contributed to the loss

isn't this classed as tax evasion if the markers considerably worth more then the seller actually states ?
dont get me wrong how do they actually know what its worth and surely you could just state it was a bargain if the sellers in on it also.

I have a few friends in the states who would consider sending me a ccm pump over.

If the value is down played then lost... what happens then...

Ive got an adrenaline shocker coming - $1400 i just told the sell stick the price on the package.

Reason - if it gets lost i aint losing my money.

Besides - paintball is expensive anyway... does anyone care that much about tax?

Agreed. otherwise if I didn't Id have a ccm coming from the states instead of one I've just purchased from France
