Duty (or customs tariffs) is set by the destination country customs authorities and is determined based on a combination of the country of origin or manufacturing of the goods being purchased, and the classification of that merchandise in accordance with a harmonized system adopted and used by the countries that we support. Value Added Tax (VAT) rates are set by the destination country. You will be able to view the guaranteed total amount of applicable duty and tax/VAT for your order within the global checkout.

What is your Price Match policy in regards to International orders?
Unfortunately, we do not offer international price matching with dealers outside the U.S. at this time.
Do your electronic items work in all countries?
We sell items that run on 110 volt electricity (USA standard), unless otherwise noted. If your country has other than 100 volts (220 volts is common), severe damage may result IF you use this item without a voltage converter. A simple plug adapter is not enough; you also need to convert the power to 110 volts. We accept no responsibility for any claim resulting from damage caused by power usage other that 110 volt.
