If there's 5 of us buying we'd be looking at about $40 a board to ship to me, and then shipping out from me. No idea what shipping would be like to get them shipped to each buyer directly from Virus.
That shows, that i can pay 40Euro and get the board directly, instead of sending it to US for 160/group, and sending for ~50USD to Kazachstan.
UPD: shipping to US/canada shows 120Eu. You mentioned 160. and i doubt we'd buy more then 15 kilos of Virus )))
Taxes are complicated, may be it's be cheaper to send to US, and then to Canadian, if US have no taxes for snowboards. 5% of $1000 is about the shipping for 1 board =)
Or divide into two groups for US and Canada.
It'd be funny, if 20% they mentioned is the VAT
Also, can you ask about bigger discounts for a bigger group? I can post some topics in Russian boards, and i think some people will like to buy a Virus with such a discount.
Like for getiing 5000Euro total - extra 5% off or something like that. I think you can find some compomise.
BTW, You should ask, if we all should buy one model or different? That matters alot.
