According to the Customer Service they do get goods taken by customs. They claim to offer refunds if this happens or they'll send out the same goods again.

I'm sure that_guy will have a nice picture explaining it all

Strange that they'd do that... i mean, it's not exactly their fault if you are caught by customs? Goodwill i guess.

What kind of customs tax would you be looking at if it did get stopped?

This is from http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/money_and_tax/tax/duties_and_vat/value_added_tax.html

If you buy online or by mail order etc.
From outside the EU

You can buy goods from outside the EU up to a value of €22 without incurring any VAT charges. Goods up to a value of €150 may be imported without payment of Customs Duty. To avoid these packages being stopped by Customs, the value should be clearly marked on the label. However, VAT and import duty is charged on importations of tobacco, tobacco products, alcoholic product and perfumes even if they cost less than €22. The Revenue Commissioners provide a guide to the reliefs available for imports from non-EC countries.

If your online purchase costs more than €22 you will have to pay VAT. If your online purchase costs more than €150 you will have to pay VAT and Customs Duty. This will be collected by the company that delivers your parcel. The company usually have an administration charge. Methods of delivery and collection differ from company to company, so you should contact them directly for more information.


Bear in mind you have to pay this for anything legit ordered outside the EU. The fact these jerseys aren't would worry me because if its a sizeable package chances are it will be opened and if there opened thats the end of the jerseys. Hope not though.

If and when That Guy returns, I'd be interested to see if any fellow exiles in Oz would be up for picking up a few jerseys and getting the free shipping? let me know!

Sorry about the delay in these pics lads. I'll have them up after work. Broadband at home has been on the blink a bit. Got it sorted last night. Again, sorry for the delay. I know a few have PM'd cos you've put orders through.

How long did the order processing take with them ?

Did you get any printing done ?

We got ours in about a week and a half. I got printing done on both jerseys. I've pictures taken of the back and front so you can see what it looks like.

Any chance of seeing these? Wanna buy from there, looks quality. Ireland shirt for 15 euro or 65 euro. Hmmm.

Such low price and free delivery sounds WAY too good to be true.


1. Most are Thailand version
2. Presume they're not official merchandise
3. I don't care; they're a great price.
4. I'm in Galway; will order 1 or 2. Anyone else interested?

Hi That_Guy. Apologies if you thought we were wrongfully accusing you of dodgy dealings. Circumstances didn't make it look to good though but glad to see you're back.

Just a general question for anybody who has ordered jerseys online from not 100% official sources: Say if they get ceased by customs, are they just taken away or do you get a fine too when they see your name on the package?

No apology necessary. My fault for not replying sooner. As I say, I'll have the pics up after work.

Have only had one shirt seized last summer that I ordered from Triads, trying to remember what the letter said.. think it just said it will be destroyed? No fine anyway.

They seem to have very good communication anyway. One of the jerseys I ordered wasn't in the size available, so they emailed me if I wanted anything else in place of it. I just took a smaller size instead and they said no problem, then I got this email this morning;


Hi,

We informed you that size Small is available but really it is out of stock as well. We will refund this jersey and send the rest.

Sorry for the issue.

Regards,
julie
