    I'm back in Europe and lived in America for two years. And I miss some things dearly as well

    Hi Europe, I'm in Lund, Sweden. :D I subscribed to crate last month, mainly to get ahold of Avalanches, Kurt Vile and Wells Fargo. Still haven't received any of them though.. Are you guys full subscription members or crate?

    Full subscription. Nothing yet. I got my shipping note last Thursday. I think my records are on a plane at the moment.

    Yeah, shipping from the States to Sweden usually takes 1-3 weeks.
    Though I bought "MEW - + -" and "Delta Spirit - Into The Wide" from the Sale section on June 20 and still haven't received them.. Guess they are still in transit, but is there any way to check if an order has been shipped or not? I have three active orders and I have only received one shipping notification which I don't know which order it belongs to. :confused:

    Are your three active orders different store invoices? If so, VMP tends to combine them into one shipment (at least domestically). There should be a count on the shipping notification. The cocktail recipe and the art each count as one item in addition to the LPs.

    Yeah, those are three separate invoices. I read the same thing as you said about them combining orders in the VMP thread on the VC forum, so you're probably right. The item count on the shipping notification only says "MULTIPLE".

    Actually I just received a notification that the parcel is in Sweden, so I should get my records and answers shortly. Only thing that worries me is if the combined value of the orders has caught - or eventually will catch - the attention of the customs offices, which could result in painful import taxes and fees... Again, we'll see.

    Hey there!
    I'm from Berlin, Germany and just signed up.

    (Is there maybe any other German in this forum who has some experience with the german customs duty?)

    Customs fees depend on the country my friend. Here in Germany we can get charged with additional 19% for packages that have a value of more than 22€ and come from outside the EU (only if the package gets stuck in customs...). I’ve ordered recently a couple of records from Japan (value over 200 Euro) and for some odd reason I wasn’t forced to make my way to my local customs office (same goes for the US, sometimes I pay, sometimes I’m not) These costs are nothing what a seller could estimate or really affect (unless the lesser just puts a smaller value on the invoice or so which will def. not be the case here I assume). If I would send a record to the US with no invoice inside the package, I would have actually to fill out a customs form and put it on the package and mark it as "gift" and it will somehow pass through customs, lol. Hope this helps

    Thank You.
    I was just worried because i didn't know what kind of receipt VMP puts into their packages.
    So an album with an 108$ receipt every month would be actually more trouble than just 36$.

    I just got the Gorillaz LP. VMP declared the package as "retoure" so i didn't have to pay or do anything at all, which is pretty great!
