Bank transfer – save on foreign exchange fees

**Due to new regulations in the EU and UK, we only suggest paying via bank transfer for large orders. VAT will not be charged on purchases made by bank transfer.**
If you live in certain countries or regions, you can pay for your items by bank transfer in your local currency and save between 3 and 5% on the price indicated in your currency, as well as get a 2% discount by bank transfer (4% discount on orders over €150/£135). Therefore, you will have an immediate saving of 5 to 9% of the prices listed on our website.
Your deposit will be made into a local bank account, so there will be no foreign transfer fees.
This shop is powered by Etsy, which charges a 3-5% currency exchange fee on all currencies other than USD, so we’ve created this solution to save you money.

Questions and answers:
Q1. Will I have to pay any fees to send my payment to a foreign bank account?
A1. You won’t send the payment to a foreign bank account, so you won’t have to pay any fees.
If you are located in the UK, you will send your payment to a UK bank account. If you are in the EU, you will send your payment to a bank account in Belgium. Australia to Australia, New Zealand to New Zealand, etc.
Q2. What happens if the item I want to buy is sold before this process is complete?
A2. Once we have received your request, we will remove the item from sale in other online stores and mark it as reserved on this site. If someone buys it here after the item is marked reserved, we’ll cancel their order and ship the item to you.
Q3. How can I contact you to place an order?
A3. You can send us a message through our contact form or via e-mail.

Q4. Will this offer be available in more countries?
A4. Wise (formerly Transferwise) continues to open more business bank accounts in more countries, so we expect this offer to be available in many more countries in the future. Check this page to see if your country has been added to the list.
P5. Will I pay you the import taxes or when the order arrives in my country?
TO 5. We will collect import taxes for specific countries (UK, Australia), but most don’t offer a way to collect and remit these taxes. Collecting import taxes (VAT, GST) at the point of sale makes the process much easier for you and typically results in lower fees due to not having a per-package processing fee.
Q6. Will you register in the EU to pay VAT?
A6. IOSS registration and monthly fees are too expensive for us. Since we are not registered as a company in the EU, we need to work with a company in the EU, and their fees are usually more than 100 euros per month just to have access to the tax return.
The only way to pay VAT at the point of purchase is to order through our website.
P7. If I order an item whose price exceeds the VAT amount, can I pay by bank transfer?
A7. Yes, we are happy to accept your payment by bank transfer when you purchase an item over £135 or €150. We will also increase the bank transfer discount to 4% for these items. Send us a message to configure the purchase.
