    question about ordering from Stowa to USA

    hi all,

    for anyone who ordered a Stowa, the company ships to the USA using Fed Ex.

    can anyone who has ordered a watch let me know if they got dinged with customs / duty?

    there is a Flieger T02 with my name on it.

    thanks.

    Recurring issue and almost 100 threads on this question.
    And yes, you will receive a bill from FedEx.

    Yes, you will get billed a few weeks later. The bill shouldn't be more than $25.00.

    I would expect to a bill from FedEx to show up a little after your watch arrives. In January my bill was $30 for my Antea KS.

    Just as others have already said. Still cheaper than buying a watch within the EU with their VAT, no? Look at the bright side I guess.

    Ask them to ship DHL chances are you will not get hit with customs, duties, taxes etc - I have had much better success from Stowa to Canada with DHL wish I had known earlier...

    My customs bill from FedEx was $31USD for a Flieger GMT with a couple of extra straps. The bill arrived 10 days after the watch.

    Ordering a Stowa from the USA

    I am trying to estimate total costs.

    Do Americans pay the full price listed on the Stowa website or the one without V.A.T.?

    If paying via Paypal, I understand that they handle the currency conversion (for about a 20 dollar fee).

    How is customs paid? Is that handled by Fedex?

    Merged with a randomly chosen thread covering this recurring issue. You might have done a search prior to posting.....
    ....or reading the Stowa FAQ (here is just one answer to your questions: If you are living an outside the European Community you will get our prices without V.A.T.Taxes and duties will be paid by recipient by time of delivery. Taxes and other fees variate in each country and will be charged directly by FedEx.If you are living in the European Community we will charge prices with V.A.T. There will be no additional cost when your ordered item will be delivered)
