Customs Fee? :(

Hey there,

Did anyone else get hit with a customs fee from DHS/Border Control when ordering directly from Zortrax?

I got a couple of spools of fillament, new hot end, etc. and it seems that for Fillament they charged me an import tax of 3.5ish %. About $14 total - invoice sent by FedEx AFTER I actually picked stuff up.

It'd be nice if Zortrax starts marking US shipments as "Manufacturer Sample" or "Gift" on the box. That'd surely help.

Thanks!

Ummm - wouldn't that be illegal?

I got one from DHL over a year ago.. Waiting for the second letter.. lol :D
