Maybe customs in AU is really strict about it But ya, that's pretty ridiculous amount. that's like a 300% markup for it.

1,100 Australian Dollar (buy it now+shipping) = 775.115 US Dollar

20kg x 4 = 80 250g packs

775.115 / 80 = 9.6889375 per 250g

i think that's an alright price

I'm surprised someone hasn't reported this person. Can't sell tobacco on E bay.

But he says it clearly,
- The value of the item is in the collectible packaging, not in the tobacco itself.

The collectible tobacco packaging is *not* available at any retail outlet, and the packaging has a value that substantially exceeds the current retail price of the tobacco in the package.

You can sell the jar on e-bay but you cant sell tobacco. So to get around that they sell jars still sealed from factory so technically its the packaging they are selling, e-bay cant stop that.

The old saying - "There's a sucker born every minute" comes to mind. Even if they are trying to loop-hole in Ebay's tobacco laws, that's a crazy amount. Unless he's really trying to just sell the packaging... then he's trying to find his "sucker".

I think this is the seller's attempt to get around eBay's no-tobacco policy. Pretty lame

It was about time. We might be shisha lovers but we do not condone any illegal action or this kind of actions which try to bypass the laws and rules of certain places. Especially a place that has so much to offer.
