Help with imort duties code from America

Hi All,

I’m looking at putting in an order from America and was wondering if anyone had an idea of the HS code or what to put in for the product and description so I can use: -

Iam trying to see what the landed cost to me would be, cost of order would be
Order: - $435.33 (£264.66)
shipping; - $87.58 (£66.65

I hope this makes sense to someone, just after the code or description to use

many thanks in advance

Thanks Josephine,

Thanks for that, yes its Flavour Concentrates from
Was looking at getting 46 4oz bottles different flavours ( to stock up) as they very cheap on the wholesale

Yea the cost of basket was $347.75
UPS Worldwide Express $87.58 (USD)
Total: - $435.33 (£335)

Have been given an HS code from them 3302.10.9000

Do I need the insurance there was no where to add it to Basket??
Nice thought though, would be a few hundred pounds cheaper than UK
will have to look into it more

Priced them up from (where ive been getting most of my flavours from), They do some nice prices, and found to be one of the cheapest I found, But no patch straight from TPA themselves.

Thanks for being patient with me and very helpful indeed

2 Likes is slightly cheaper than rainbowvapes. The good thing about this shop is they have a discount code for us here on ELR; For 12% off most use code: ELR12 :grinning:
You can look at the recourse page for more EU vendors with discounts here;

Was it still cheaper from the US with all the additional fees?

Well it was but not by a lot,, and our 12% discount brought the price close, except I got 118ml bottles from USA, apposed to 100ml from UK.

They arrived very quick also
Cost of 54 118ml bottles on my wholesale account: -
USA: - $403.25 + $87.83 post
Total: - $491.08
That’s about £375.55 + £86.60 customs
Total: - £462.15
The bottles are different prices, but if you divide by the 54 bottles its £8.56 for 118ml bottles, cheapest ive seen is from and there £9.5 for 100ml with postage and discount its £11.56 as the postage is rather high on a few bottles, much cheaper if the order is over 1 litre.

So if you buy bulk from 54 bottles £458.04

So cheaper from UK unless you buy by the gallon from the states lol

Sorry for the long winded reply, just working it out
