    I don't know how he got them to agree to send him a monitor, unless there is not an authorized dealer for Lilliput in Denmark. Anyway, the website is

    www.lilliput.cn

    Its true 8-)

    I just e-mailed, and got in contact with Jordan Ou, He is a nice man.

    I dont know how much customs i have to pay, but the price i payed was 285$. Transferred from my bank yesterday, so now i wait.

    For those who dont belive me:

    1. Mail

    Dear Mr.Daniel

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    The 618GL-70NP(XGA)with touch screen is at USD215/PC FOB Xiamen, China.

    General speaking, we can send a sample to Denmark, but your company has to pay for the courier charge. Can you give me some information about your company, contact info and what's business you are doing?

    I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

    Best regards

    Jordan Ou
    ---------------------------------

    2.mail

    Dear Daniel,

    Please count on how many pieces you want, I'll check our wholesale price and postage charge. After that we can work out how much you should pay by T/T to us from your bank.

    Thank you.

    Jordan Ou

    3. Mail

    Dear Daniel,

    So you need to pay USD215+USD40(Freight Charge)+USD30(Our bank operation fee)=USD285(TTL: SAY U.S.DOLLARS TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-FIVE ONLY)
    Pay to the following account:
    BANK AND A/C DETAILS:

    PLEASE PAY TO FOLLOWING ACCOUNT:

    PRIVATE ACCOUNT: ZHANGZHOU LILLIPUT ELECTRONICS CO., LTD.

    ACCOUNT NO.: 35066860814221000200127

    BANK: CHINA CONSTRUCTION BANK, ZHANGZHOU BRANCH

    SWIFT CODE: PCBCCNBJFJZ

    Also please let me know your telephone number in addition to the address you mentioned. It's required by the courier service.

    I look forward to your confirmation. To be frank, this is the first time I retail to an oversea enduser except sample orders. Very pleased!

    Thank you.

    Best regards

    Jordan Ou

    To anyone interested: LCDs shipped to the EU from a country outside the EU is liable to import tax of 14% and add VAT as well.

    A screen that costs 200$ shipped to the EU for $32 shipping will cost u:

    $200 LCD
    $+32 Shipping
    -----
    $232 Total

    Import Tax

    $232 * 14% = 32.48
    $232 * 18%VAT (i.e. VAT for Greece is 18%) = 41.76

    Add about $5-$10 for some extra office costs.

    About $80

    Computers and Computer peripherals are NOT liable to import tax but WILL be charged VAT.

    Hope that helps and sorry about the slightly off-topic post!

    I believe you, my point was that if there is already an authorized dealer in Denmark they might have directed you to them. Since he thought that you wanted to market their product that got the ball rolling. Sounds like you could have got a free one for setting something like that up.

    By the way he answered you it sounds like he thinks that you have a company.
    They don't usually do this but if a lot of people start emailing them for 1 - 2 monitors as samples they will stop selling them.

    Also they don't accept Credit Cards so the funds have to be transferred via your Bank Account = $35-$40 international transfer fee.

    sounds like he understood clearly that he is an overseas end-user:

    Hi All,
    I'm looking to buy one of these Lilliput 7" VGA screens from ebay but cant decide what the cheapest and best way for me to get it sent would be.

    I can get things sent to America where my sister lives or to my home address in the UK.

    Obviously I would get the goods quicker from the UK but also might have to pay customs tax and VAT of up to 40 or so. From America I would have to wait until my sister next comes over to the UK (maybe a month or so) but haven't heard much about people having to pay the taxes.

    Any input on how people have been charged on these screens with taxes and VAT in both America and the UK would be a definite help to a student who has already reached his overdraft limit!

    Cheers

    I just got my Lilliput, the one from ebay, and had a dicussion about the duty with the postman. He said the duty paid was $15, and the package was checked "Merchandise". I paid $35 for shipping, so I guess the duty is included in that, allthough when you read the ebay page, it's not clear and sounds like duty would be in addition to shipping. Hope this helps.
