Hi spiro,

I think the final price does not include the customs duty. If it does then it is a smashing price.

cheers,
sri

Hi,

I was just searching on ebay Global & found good prices of BDp.
Really not sure if calculated prices are final.

eg.Sony BDP-S350 Bluray+DVD Player 1080P for Rs.7458,
calculated price- Rs.13351

Global Easy Buy

If this is the final price,then its good deal with warrenty.

Pls.post your views,
Thanks....

Sony honours global warentee?? Just check....esp grt the latest cenario. In 2002 it used to honour Jumbo warentee ( By Jumbo -Uae) and we were told it is special ararngement.

It is the final price (except any Octroi taxes imposed by local muncipality/contonment etc.).

Typically, Global ebay charges US$ price + ~40% on the US price + US local shipping (if any), which IMHO is a good deal as it includes shipping and customs duties. The catch is that it may not be worth ordering anything of smaller value, say items below US$ 100.

I tried it, and it works as they have stated. the price charged is inclusive of shipping and customs duty.

Of course, I tried it only with a small item. I ordered a "digital optical to co-axial converter".

Delivery took less than 2 weeks.

I must say the Denon receiver prices look amazing.

What we need to think about before buying :
- most probably these are 110volt units
- ProFX will not honour warranty, or provide any servicing or repairs

Any thoughts from anyone ?

Hi,

This is what given in the Denon 1610 auction page.


International Buyers - Please Note:
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.


cheers

Correct, this is how local dealers will protect their business. In the best case, the dealer will overcharge for servicing - the amount he would have obtained as profit if you had purchased from him.

But, now all units will require servicing, only in some cases, if some problem turns up you need to service the product

it says :
PaisaPay : Full Coverage on Total Cost
Assured purchases or your money back

Basically it seems ebay.in is the front end with all the features;
and the order is sent to int resellers in back-end.
So like north20, who is going to be responsible for delays?

Thanks

That's what it is. Ebay.in is the front-end, and will calculate international s&h + india customs duty upfront, and charge you for it. They take care of buying it from the US seller, and then shipping it to you.

My 1 buying experience has been very positive. Shipment actually arrived far earlier than they had indicated. They even send the courier ticket number to enable you to track the shipment.

Hi friends,

I am new to this forum, but have been an ebayer since 2006. Pls dont order AVRs from ebay. Most of the times you would end up receiving factory-restored or refurbished ones and, becareful, there is no returning when you buy an item through global easy buy and you cannot contact the reseller at any stage of your purchase.

All the best!

Can you eloborate this please? AFAIK, the items are clearly described as refurbished or NIB (new in box) on ebay and if you buy from reputed sellers, I don't think there will be an issue and you should get what you paid for.

Just remember, if the price is too good and the seller has dodgy reputation, it might be too good to be true :lol:.
