    Why’s it so great?

    YouShop provides you with a USA delivery address for items you’ve bought online in the USA, allowing you to send them on to New Zealand.

    You can:

    Buy from online stores in the USA that don't send overseas.
    Access brands you can't get in New Zealand.
    Monitor your parcel's progress.
    Know your parcel is in good hands by using New Zealand Post.
    Pay postage in NZD$ from just $23.00 for a 500g parcel.
    NZ Post will act as a address forwarder for buying things from the USA! There are probably cheaper alternatives out there but many will like the feel of security of NZ Post.

    Pretty cool.

    Yeah I saw that too, looks interesting. I asked my mate who ships stuff from the US often if it's any good.

    Looked at it but they use USPS so they don't allow lithium batteries.

    Will stick with shipito I think - more choice on the shipping too

    I wonder how long they're going to get away with that. There's a lot of American produced climbing gear I'd like to buy in the US (for half of what I can buy it elsewhere) but they have trade restrictions placed on all of it. I can't imagine they're going to be happy as a pig in shit to find out one of our SOEs is dodging their system...

    Interesting point.

    Perhaps NZ Post have a list of shops that could potentially be sending barred goods?

    Whats the import tax on goods from overseas? Is it a $600 limit?


    Edit:

    From customs website:

    Goods mailed into New Zealand may be subject to import duty. Import duties are calculated on the Customs value of the goods in New Zealand dollars.

    The goods may also be subject to Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 15%, based on the Customs value of the goods, and including the duty (if any) and postal/courier charges.

    Goods liable for duty and GST of NZ$60 or more cannot be released until the charges are paid.

    There will also be an import entry transaction fee (IETF) and MPI biosecurity system entry levy.

    If your goods are valued at over NZ$1,000, you will need a client code.​
    http://www.customs.govt.nz/inprivate...s/default.aspx

    from nz post website:

    When your parcel arrives at your YouShop address (at our USA warehouse), we'll tell you, so you can declare the value of the parcel for customs purposes, and pay for international postage to your nominated address in New Zealand.

    TL;DR If I understand it correctly, anything over $60 bucks can be taxed? Really makes it pointless....

    Nope. Ive spent $360 on a single overseas purchase and didnt get taxed..
    What I understand is that you only pay GST if the amount you gotta pay is $60. And since 15% of $400 is $60, I'm assuming the 'limit' before you start paying GST is $400.
    Id like someone to confirm though..

    The limit is indeed 400$. 99% certain.
