  • Ordering from overseas

    Hey guys just like to ask has anyone ordered anything from Evike.com and has anyone had any problems with shipping to the uk

    pm me or leave a reply cheers

    Ive orderd from evike before. No issues with shipping but you will have to pay import tax at around 20% wich includes the cost of shipping plus get mugged for around 15 pound customs handeling fee. Worth calculating as it adds on a fair whack. Dont forget to add your ukara number with instructions to write it on the outside of the box

        You will have to pay postage, then when the package arrives in the UK, you will be charged 20% of the item price and shipping price. And then a £14 charge on top as Parcel Force or another courier pays the tax on your behalf.

        So for example:

        AEG: $200
        Shipping: $100

        Subtotal == £230.59

        20% VAT of £230.59: £46.11
        Courier handling fee: £14

        Grand total: £290.71

            i'll break it down as much as possible as someone that deals with imports daily

            Product - EG £200 + shipping EG £20 gives you the export total £220

            Once it gets to the EU/UK that £220 will be subject to duty (this varies depending on country it's coming from and type of product but for this example lets say 5%)

            your new total is £231 which is also subject to VAT at 20% so it's now £277.20

            Then the courier can charge a small handling fee which is usually around £15 so your total cost including freight would be £292.20

            This total is usually right around the retail price you would have paid in the UK , give or take a few pounds .

            However , if you have issues that few quid you may or may not have saved will vanish as you are entitled to no after sales support from retailers outside the EU

            Also this has taken between 4 days and 4 weeks with you having to monitor customs clearance to ensure the tax is paid rapidly instead of waiting for them to send a letter asking for it

              Just add the item to your cart and then go to checkout, enter the country to give an accurate shipping cost. They say international shipping is $30, but that seems rather low. If it is though, it would be ($185 + $30) x 1.2 = $215 or £165. And then the £14 handling fee on top.

              Yes, pretty much, it's usually not worth the effort getting it internationally, although it seems in this case it's an exclusive for Evike.

                    Or hand it over to someone who does care.

                    Sales section is still very active, but the vBulletin 5 is awful. We don't have a report function, no itrader, which is why that section is a mess, plus the constant 500 server errors.

                      You can usually get out of handling fee if you argue that you did not request for them to pay the customs fee for you. They decided to do that themselves.
