The new VidOn Remote will have the ability to control the whole VidOn Box, so we need time to redesign it.

 

After Dec 22nd, the price is likely still $1.99/mo. We will offer lifetime.

So how about import taxes? Can you lower the ammount of $ from the receipt to make it tax free or we will need to pay import duty also?

It will display as 10€ on the receipt.

I see you tax VAT on payment for EU orders. 12$ shipping+ 15$ VAT+ whatever import duty that wil be charged.

If you pay VAT on full price i cant see how you'll go around the import duties

For me is a no go, good luck to others buying it

Well after my purchase of box the price wasn't exactly what was announced...

You can see in the image I've paid the box, transportation costs... and TAX.

 

My questions are:

 

1 - Since I'm from Europe, this means that if the package goes through customs I have pay taxes not from 61,99USD but from 76,25USD?

 

2 - Well since I'm buying the box from china, why I have to pay taxes to Spain? Which is the nearest country where I live (Portugal).

 

If you guys would include the membership in the bundle, as it was initially supposed to, the cost would be much more expensive, because of the TAX that was never mentioned by you.

The Price ($49+$12.99) doesn't include the VAT. 

And the price we mark on the receipt will be around of 10€. We will try our best to avoid the high tax.

Why it is Spain not your country Portugal, we need to ask Avangate, which is the third-party payment platform that we cooperate for business.

Hi vodevil,

I think that Vidon.me/Avangate decided to handle the import taxation for you which means they are paying the suitable import tax for you (Portugal has 23% as far as I am informed)  = 14.26 USD which you are refunding them in advance.

Otherwise you may run the risk that the customs of your country will hold back the delivery as long as you have not paid the import tax.

Duties is another topic and it depends up to which customs value the import is free in your country. The basis should always be the procduct price + transport costs to your country border - here 61.99 USD. The membership will not be a part of the delivery for customs value - so don't worry about that so far.

When you decide for payable subscription later on, normally your local VAT will be added to the fee.

$49 indeed is the zero profit price, so we can't cover the VAT for you.

Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for the explanation skyliner. So now I don't have to worry about my customs.

I have the old AV200 box and very happy with it, except for for audio clips and fizzes in places, video perfect, when playing 7.1 master movies from a usb hard drive, ISO Files. I have scanned the forum for reasons I would enter a yearly contract but as yet have not been convinced that the hardware is better, although the box looks nice. I did not get an answer to the above  problem, will I get one with this new contract?

 

Sorry to be negative but I would like the new box if it seems better.

 

Gerry
