    Good update zimmer - thanks for that.

    I would imagine most sellers in the U.S. would have a turnover of more than NZ $65K so they would be required to collect the 15% GST. In the case of the OP he might be saving around $35 and then we have the 2% foreign exchange fee most banks charge on credit cards to deduct off that.

    Right on. The CC fee is often overlooked plus somehow the unfavourable exchange rate used doesn't match the day's lookup rate.
    You can dodge the CC fee by using PayPal (if accepted by the seller) but then PayPal rapes you with their dodgy exchange rates and fees. It may seem small cheese but it all adds up.

    Most of what I import is stuff that is just not available in NZ.

    Don't fully understand your question but if you use the guide and you are buying in $US, you select the $US options for purchase and delivery charges throughout and their guide tells you what you will have to pay them in $NZ
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.
