Why is the 19% VAT not removed when purchasing on Ebay with shipment to New Zealand ?
It is removed if purchased at Opis website, but not Opis Ebay store.

Hello Jacko,

Removing the VAT on Ebay can not be automated. Thus it would require manual rework for orders from outside the EU.
Instead we have decided to reduce the shipping cost on Ebay to only 9,99€/$ for oversea orders. So it is really not an extra profit we are taking but the money goes to DHL and Deutsche Post.
In our webshop you get the best price. The shipping costs are still the same, and the VAT is removed. Because we pay no fees or commission (as on Ebay), we give this benefit (removed VAT) to our customers.

I hope that answers your questions.

Best regards,
