Ehh, I’ll be taking GBP and EUR so I guess I didn’t want to convert it until I actually ask for payments
Speaking of which, I’d really prefer payments via Bank transfer or paypal in GBP because I’ll never get to use paypal in EUR
What about the support for EU customers ? We will have to send back the unit to US, I guess ? Will be too expensive to pay shipping for way and back (and maybe even customs to pay if a new replacement unit is sent, not sure about that)…
I’m in for one unit. Not that I need another esc, but I just want to support those who makes Jasons life a bit more difficult.
And it’s a nice move to help our community members who never received their Unit from enertion
@Anubis, do you know how shipping from UK to EU works in 2021 with respect to Brexit? Don’t the packages need to go through customs now?
Edit: I just did a quick research and from what I understand, as of January 1, 2021 the Brexit transition period has ended and no trade deal has been negotiated between the UK and the EU. So it looks like we now do have to deal with customs when shipping between UK and EU. That’s a bummer.
For most EU countries, you actually need to send a “21.99 EUR drone ESC” since 22 EUR is the “duty free” limit. I can’t speak for other EU countries but in the Czech Republic, once the declared value is above 22 EUR, customs office starts asking questions. Then it doesn’t quite matter what exactly the declared value is because you’ll be asked to prove the value of goods by providing the order, invoice, and payment statement. Then you get to choose between telling the truth and falsifying the documents where I personally tend to prefer the former since the latter is no fun if you get caught.
If on the other hand the declared value is below 22 EUR, the customs office never cares regardless of the weight and contents of the package. My hypothesis is they are overloaded and they are more than happy to let it go if they are legally allowed to.
