    O Davenport..Sorry...I thought Haines city..well...its not far from each other. hahaha.

    Can anybody confirm the following website?
    https://www.dutycalculator.com/new-i...ils/219195788/

    It says you do NOT have to pay any taxes or duty when importing from China as long as you stay below the $800 total value (products and shipping)

    From everything I have ordered from China I have never had to pay a customs or duty charge. The package has been delivered by DHL with no issue.

    Thanks Protege94!!!...

    That sounds like going home with a extra suitcase full of pixels...I think I can get about 2070 pixels in a suitcase...
    My 46 pixelnodes 18awg from Ray wu weigh 334gram ( 11.8 ounce)
    So 2070 pixels should be around 15 kilo ( 33 pound)

    Leaves me 7 kilo (16.5 pounds) for extra pigtails and packaging materials..

    And still nicely under the €430 that I am alowed to import in my country upon returning...

    (Singing) Its gonna be a good good christmaaaaas, with piiiiixeeeels..dreaming of those bling bling blinky piece of light..

    Just another consideration, you may want to place your order w/ Ray ASAP, the Chinese New Year runs from Jan 15th to Feb 2nd this year and everything pretty much shuts down. So to avoid getting stuck in a backlog of orders being placed during this time you need to order now.

    I'm in the uk, import tax is also high here, ask ray and he will amend your shipping invoice. I got 70x 50 ws2811 and some floods etc order came to just under 1100$ including delivery. He marked it down on invoice for 230$ . I only paid 50 English customs. Maybe worth a go. I know how airliners handle suitcases
    FedEx for me in the uk is better than DHL
