    As a heads up - my last order was 8000.00
    Customs was over 1200.00
    I contested and ended up with 257.00
    You still have shipping and currency conversion to consider and W&N pays for card fees.
    Every large order comes with customs fees.

    Thanks for the reassurance guys, no beef with WN, thier flat rate shipping is great. I will lose sleep over our country's greedy little hands.
    No funny charges when I bought private party overseas so it musy only be retail.

    i think that Chris + Don have it right - a big order gets tagged. it hasn't happened to me on a myriad of small orders ($500 +/- a few hundred) - no issues. another friend put in a big order that i tacked on to, and it got tagged.

    so its better to make more small orders and take advantage of the the 30 euro savings when its available so that your shipping comes down to 19 euro

    Great tips everyone, thanks for your support. Very impressed with W/N in every aspect, I'd like to keep using them.
