Remarque, puisque je suis plus souvent chez moi, je voudrais toujours tester comment ça se passe si on ne prepaye pas la TVA. (juste pour la curiosité)


Tu prends un risque inutile là, à moins d'aimer jouer à se faire peur !

Les 10€ qu'on me demandait de payer c'était pour une commande de 25€, et si je n'avais pas payé la TVA, on ne m'aurait donc pas remboursé ! et 10€ pour une commande 25€, ça fait un peu mal au c.. ! et ça ne vaut plus le coup là, autant payer au prix fort en France dans ce cas ..!

Je pense que ça va être de plus en plus difficile à l'avenir qu'un colis sans TVA passe sous les radars. Comme tout est informatisé aujourd'hui et que tout est scanné, ça ne doit pas être très difficile de mettre en place une alerte automatique en cas de non paiement de la taxe !

Après, c'est toi qui vois ..! pour moi, c'est tout vu, je coche la case.

Ps: Le 3631 de Laposte, est un serveur vocal, il faudra donner le n° de suivi du colis vocalement !
Quand tu auras eu les renseignements demandés, on te demandera si tu es satisfait du renseignement, tu réponds non, on te demandera alors si tu veux être mis en relation avec un correspondant, tu réponds oui, et là tu pourras poser toutes tes questions à la personne que tu auras au bout du fil !

Le 3631 est un numéro non surtaxé, je le rappelle !
Le robot est juste un peu dur de la feuille quand tu dois dicter ton n° de suivi, parfois il te fait répéter plusieurs fois, mais on y arrive !
(Pour rappel, pour les lecteurs du forum, ce numéro n'est valable que pour la France)

A bit more English in this informative French thread:

My FT package arrived yesterday without problems I'm pleased to say.

We all know that the method used is both different and cheaper than that used by ali-X. While I wonder if it will continue to work long term, I'll use it while it works;)

I appreciate Anniepan's post which offers an alternative should it become necessary.

I am glad to hear this good news for you cmj55!

Indeed, the Fasttech method is quite advantageous, and as I said in my post #43, and from what I understood, Fasttech respects well the European standards, the VAT is applied on the intrinsic value of the product, ie excluding shipping costs.

Thank you also for sharing your experience, I hope it will reassure a little more those who followed this thread and still have some doubts!
I also hope that the method used by Fasttech will remain sustainable for a long time... !

I will have another experience to share soon, but in only 3 or 4 weeks, at least I hope so!
I will be receiving a replacement product, as the one I received was defective.

Fasttech told me that since the VAT was prepaid on the original order, they will be able to declare it on the reshipment package.
I'll see how it goes, and I'll come back on this thread to say if everything went well with the customs ... or not!

But for the moment the article has not been shipped yet, it is not yet in stock, it should be theoretically in 5 days!
To be continued ...

Cmj, I had 3-4 orders this year, everything went well with prepaid VAT. The one order I tried without, got lost somewhere in China (if it's a coincidence...), for the resend I asked for to prepay it.

Yes I also find great that Fasttech leaves us with more options. Especially since seeing that Spanish people still have lots a troubles, and started faulting that the VAT is established by FT only based on the product price, shipping fees excluded, while for other countries things work out much better now. Hope it wouldn't change. Also hope that Spanish customs would change their practices. (almost wrote manners, lol)

Hi again French vapers,
Has anyone tried French e-packet recently? How fast is it?

Bien le bonjour Cilika !

Two orders with French e-packet recently. One month delivery, minimum. Twice as long as a few month ago...
But... no vat pre-payed... Maybe it is related.

15 days was the common delivery time I was used to, before the vat rules change.

Merci Laxal! Yes, delivery times have changed since. It's also interesting to follow tracking and see how the packages go through 127 smaller stages.

So it's not worth to pay the extra...
I received my 2 FT orders this week, (I always go with "Registered Airmail, Routed by Fasttech") they took 16-18 days to arrive, so i'd say it's not that bad!

1 st bad experience here with VAT.

It was my first puchase since a long time, and i haven't noticed the box "Opt-in to pre-pay EU VAT"

Thanks to cilika for the thread, i now noticed it lol. But for this order (previous to this thread) i thought VAT was automatically included in total price.

The package was splitted due to manufacturers delays.

First package went through customs without problems.

Second one is now held by customs and i have to pay 6 euros for a 22 euros atomizer.

Fail.
