Comments on 2009-10-12 Diaspora

Hey, I looked at my Lulu shopping cart again, and shipping and handling went up by a dollar: $13.97! Weird.

Buying it from Sphärenmeister in Germany is much better:

Bezeichnung GP Diaspora - Hard SF FATE 28,95 €
Versandmethode 1,80 €
Gesamtbetrag ohne MwSt. 28,74 €

Often small shops will not sell without VAT to Switzerland. This is cool. About $43.

You probably know this already, but I read on an info page that certain tax exemptions exist when importing from Germany to Switzerland. Sure enough, the package arrived without me having to pay anything extra.

Yup. No VAT if and only if 7.6% of the package does not exceed CHF 5.- – otherwise you’ll pay 7.6% + CHF 18.- service charge. A source of much annoyance!!
