May be a strange thing to post on tech help yet as I have been purchasing parts from os I would like some opinions re shipping and GST. As our Government changed the laws last year that goods coming to Aus are subject to GST with goods under a value $1000 au classified as low cost purchases yet still subject to GST and goods over that requiring customs clearance through a freight forwarding company . I have purchased items under $1000 from the US and use a US mailing address Aus post ,shopmate account I have found that I can track the item speak to someone in Aust easy for me and GST is paid before it is shipped in AUS. Question? Should I set up the same process in Germany as I am trying to buy shocks Bilstien In AUS the shocks are priced at $1700 and in Germany are $500 euro. Rang hessmans and they can not match anywhere the price. Don't want to get caught in a customs nightmare. Is there someway better?
