thats what i was thinking so im hoping there is a tactic which i can use to avoid this such as sending the product as a gift and put it down that the product is weights or something heavy.

The best thing to do is ship 10 at a time within a few days of each other i think they can fit in flat rate shipping boxes u will have to pay about $30.00 per box

you know they do make starbuzz in 1kg tubs too, if you are looking to not resell those 100 tins and use them for a lounge or something

100 x 250g is not a believable gift, you would have to anticipate duties and no vendor will do this for you without accepting apayment by western union.

If I was a vendor I would say sure, but you have to WU me the $$ and if it gets grabbed by customs I'm not taking a refund.

That's almost 3 grand worth of tobacco, why would you want that much unless you plan on reselling.

--- Go for that... IF i was the vendor i would def. want like 5-10k in gameroom cash along with it though just for the troubles

As for what you are doing with it all? Others asked and it went ignored, but if you are not comfortable answering it... We will understand.

I suggested this to someone the other day about a hookah rig he wanted but lived in the uk...

Why don't you find a member on HP to have everything sent to... Then have them help you out and say... Send a group of 10 out to you... WAIT and see if it gets collected... and if it does... figure out another way... Throw a few bucks or a container or few to them for the time/gas/etc etc for helping you out...

I would be glad to help considering i don't do anything all day... but i am in boston now and no car... Wont be back to home until 24 nov.

Problem with getting flat rate shipping is if customs have a way of tracking how many pacels one household receive from abroad it might be a bit bait if 10 parcels come out of nowhere in the space of a few weeks, try sending them to different people's houses to help avoid customs

--- Eehh, i don't think you would really have to worry about that. All in all though, you or he could always look up this more in depth to see when he should start to worry, when they would start questioning the items etc etc.

Something you would really need to look up yourself.

nothing you would have to pay the tax or get it sent back to the vendor who will refund you but charge a re-stocking fee and not return shipping

It is illegal to import it without paying customs.

They will hold your package, and calculate the custom/duty charges then send you a letter of how much it will be, if you fail to pay or dont want to pay you can ask for the package to be sent back and the vendor would offer a refund, minus shipping and restocking fee's

Duty on 1kg ~ 80
