Hi, the prices of importing car parts in Israel are insane! I was wondering what is the situation in other parts of the world.

The taxes here are:

Upto 75$ - tax free.
More than 75$ - 48% of the package value AND the shipment price.

What is the situation in your country?

Norway it is +25% VAT in addition to a fee for the paperwork needed, usually about 10-20£.

I'm not sure of the percentage but I recently paid about £70 on some rare motorcycle fairings from China.

20% VAT on goods coming from outside the EU. Plus import duty which varies depending on several things, but typically 2-5%.

Pretty similar here... too bad UK will leave the EU and ebay.co.uk will get expensive for me...
