    Cheapest Ilford Film in Europe?

    (product availabillity sounds like the correct subforum for this question)

    I am planning to make a large order of 200 to 300 pieces of Ilford PanF+ in 120 format and I'm investigating prices around Europe. Last year I bought 100 rolls from Nordfoto in Germany which gave me the lowest price of less than two euros per roll, but now they seem to have risen, atleast for half a euro. Still, they seem lower than others.
    Any suggestions? For such an order, every cent counts.

    That's a coincidence. I just ordered some Pan F from 7dayshop this morning. It costs £1.35 per roll which is just about two euros.

    I'm not sure if there is a similar benefit anywhere else in the world but if you buy from 7dayshop in Britain, you do not pay VAT (value added tax).

    It's unfortunately a benefit available only for the Brits. Since 7days are shipping out of the Channel Islands, the merchandise is tax exepmpt for citicens of Britain. But since the Channel Islands for tax purpouses lies outside the EU, VAT (and customs fee) is added to the price when ordering to f'rex Greece or Sweden.
    Now, the customs officers doesn't always have a very keen knowledge of the intricacies of British geography, and to my experience there is a 33% chance that VAT and customs will be added when ordering to Sweden from Jersey. Greek customs may be more strict -- or more leninent.
    BUT it is more or less a moot point since 7days (and some other Jersey based companies) only deliver to Britain nowadays.

    Hi Steve,

    Used them for my film for many years. So good not paying tax. Feels like a small victory every time I place an order !!!

    Regards, John.

    Hmpf.

    7dayshop is (so far) the cheaper, but no use to the world outside Britain (and Ireland). Nordfoto is the cheaper of the "useful ones" at €2.19 per roll excluding MwST/VAT. The €200 minimum order for buyers outside EU has never been a problem - at least not to me.

    Remember that Germany's VAT rate goes up from 16% to 19% from 1st Jan.

    These people offer discounts for quantity. Their 20 pack price is Euro 2.40 each. Might be worth an email for the quantities you are purchasing?

    Their postal charges are expensive, but this may also be negotiable?

    Another good option here in Germany is PhoBaTec. Sometimes they are cheaper than Nordfoto, sometimes Nordfoto is cheaper. But I think they do not stock Ilford PanF. Maybe you can ask them by email, as far as I know they are very responsive.

    ciao
