doubt about retrogate.com
« on: February 12, 2015, 09:12 PM »
Correct me if I'm wrong, but retrogate is krikzz store, right?

I have interest in acquiring other everdrives, however, by everdrive official resellers here in Brazil, ends up being more expensive for the end User, after all, they have to make their profit as well.

I wonder if it would be possible to buy on the retrogate and when the krikzz would send me, put what I paid the amount of US $ 50.00 (product + shipping), because in Brazil, purchases over U $ 50.00 are taxed at 60 % of the amount paid and the taxes here already is too high for electronics and currently the dollar is practically triple of the Real (today thu 12/fev 2015 U$1,00 = R$2.83), which makes the everdrive an article even more luxury haha  ;D

Could it be possible?

Probably not.  In USA it is a federal offense for shipper to lie on custom form.  I imagine other postal services have similar law about custom form and value declaring.  They may not go after private party who did it one or 2 times but if they go after a business like Krikzz, it can hurt a lot.

What could work is to pay a trusted friend outside Brazil to buy the ED and have it shipped.  USA almost never charge taxes on incoming packages.  I hear they generally won't bother unless the value has a few zero's  ;D

From there, they can send it as "gift" and put in low value like $40

What the OP is speaking about are the details of a purchasing negotiation, so it's not something that any seller is likely to be willing to discuss directly on a public forum.

This is something that should be negotiated directly between the purchaser and the seller privately.
Send them an email and see if they'll play ball with you.
