hello everybody!
after a long time without firing up my soldering iron, i've recently decided to build a new pedal.

I would like to buy one UV-printed box this time, and i know that Tayda electronics offers this service, but i'm concerned with import-taxes and customs duties, given that around 2 years ago rules changed in the EU.

Do you guys know how much i would pay for a small order from Tayda, taxes and customs included?
OR: Is there anyone in Europe doing UV-printing service with affordable prices?

thanks a lot.

Tayda often have a DDP option which includes taxes.
Else it depends on your country (Germany is 19% for example) and what your shipping method is. If you do DHL express, then you’re paying them to process customs for you which could be costly.

Thanks, i would choose the cheapest option.
I'm in Italy anyway and import taxes are 22%.
(I don't know what a DDP option is, i will search on Google)

DDP from Tayda would be nice, however - I haven't been able to find the option on the site 🙄

...haven't found the DDP option either.
Anyway,
anybody here living in the EU (preferably in Italy) who has recently ordered from Tayda?
how much did you pay? thanks!

DDP is sometimes an option. It depends on your order size, though sometimes it's just not there.
I have ordered without DDP using DHL Express to Germany, and you end up with the country tax (+19%) as well as a DHL handling fee for customs.
The handling fee depends on the number of customs category lines, you get a number of them free and then pay pre extra. I forget the exact cost but it's around €2-4 per line/category.
What this means, if you're not using DDP then just order a few types of things from Tayda. I generally only order pots because I can't find them elsewhere for the same price, maybe also enclosures if I want UV printing.
For EU, you're better off getting components from LCSC or somewhere local where tax is handled for you.

ok, i can confirm that once you add something to the cart you can see the DDP option, with DHL .
It's around 26 $, a bit high but quite ok, considering that it's a 2 to 4 days delivery with no extra-costs.
