    Completely legal to import these supps to Europe?


    Hi,
    Been lurking around the forum for quite a while, seeking inspiration for a new stack. I've decided to order the following:

    Anabeta Elite
    Agmatine
    Erase Pro
    X-Gels or X-Factor
    Maybe Norcodrene or Alphamine to stack with Erase Pro

    Since the only European retailer of these supps (PredatorNutrition) are ridiculously overpriced, i'd like to order it from Nutraplanet. Can anyone tell me if any compounds in these supps won't pass customs without getting seized? Been looking at WADA list etc. and no problems there. Any knowledge or experiences from european citizens who ordered any of these products from nutraplanet would be great, thanks!

    You could have problems with Alphamine and Norcodrene. Also remenber that, depending of the country where you are from, customs may apply import taxes (in my country can be up to 40% depending of the amount ordered).

    So EU retailers aren't doing nothing more that passing to us the import taxes and VAT.

    Are you in the UK? You say Europe so I don't know. Anyway, UK customs is a lottery... sometimes they catch things, sometimes they don't. Really down to luck. And it's not the ingredients to be worried about so much as the tax they'll slap on it for you, wiping out any saving you made buying from the US. Depending what country you're in though, might be more slack.

    Yeah i figured this, because of the yohimbine.
    Customs doesnt matter. Still way cheaper than Predator.

    You could always call them and ask, see what their policy is. No harm in that.

    Thanks for your answer! I've tried that, but they won't answer anything specific. They just tell me to buy from local retailers lol.

    Well I think the only way you'll know in that case is by trying it and finding out lol. Unless there's another Dane on here who has already tried it.

    Yeah, that's also my best guess. I'll just go ahead and order it later today. Worst case scenario is that the package gets seized, but i can't see why that would happen. And also it seems that yohimbe is only banned in Australia and Sweden?

    You'll be fine. I've had tax slapped on my nutra orders to the UK before. Smaller the package less chance of them stopping it I have found. Even with the added tax and "handling fee" I've still managed to save money over buying within the UK.

    Exactly, that's why i want to buy from the US. US prices + shipping + tax and random ****, are still way cheaper than PredatorNutrition.
    Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Not so sure ordering from NutraPlanet will work out for you - for a small order to Ireland they would have charged me double to include shipping. :\

    Nutraplanet do a good deal on international shipping. $12 for a package under 3lbs. That's 3-5 pill bottles

    Yes predator is really expensive.But they have a nice product range.Depending on the brand the price is still acceptable or absolutely inacceptable.The latter ones should be better bought from the planet.But even natty stuff could be seized by customs depending on the country.I asked them if it would be ok to import pump spray from the us and they said no!It would be considered as medicine.Ridiculous

    iForce Potassium Nitrate and Genomyx Evol would have cost me about €100 in total. Not such good deals...

    Actually it is very cheap. I just ordered ABE, EP, Agmatine, X-Gels and ALCAR. $161 including shipping (which was only $8 btw.) IF the package gets taken by customs, the order will reach an overall price of $231,

    The same order at PredatorNutrition would cost me $311.

    So bottomline; Nutraplanet is close to half the price of PredatorNutrition, including shipping fees, and still way cheaper if the packege gets taken by customs.

    The pricing/tax is insane. I actually worked out once that if I got a big order sent to a friend in the US (talking around $3-400 here mind), it would be cheaper for me to fly out and pick it up than buying it all in the UK.

    I paid customs duty and tax on my last few nutraplanet orders and still saved a lot to make it worth while.

    That's great and all, but shipping from bb.com is a LOT cheaper - even when it comes from the US. Fair enough, they don't have some of the same products, but for those prices I won't be getting them anyway.

    How the **** can shipping be A LOT cheaper than $8?? And also, it's not. Minimum international fee is over $8 lol.

    Obviously i dont order from bb when i want PES products..

    Your argument got owned. Deal with it instead of being butthurt..

    You will pay vat, import tax and customs handling charges in the uk. I've never had a problem so far with yohimbine being seized. I think it might be of of those things that is illegal to sell in the uk but not illegal to buy from overseas for personal use. Much like some prescription meds. Someone will correct me though i am sure! I much prefer proper alphamine, even if it's all in my head.
