Andy,

Others here on APUG have ordered from Freestyle, with orders well under the $1000 GST-threshold. I am very surprised the order has come to well over $1,500. The order is too high to garner benefits of overseas purchasing. Customs, only doing their job, will embargo the order (sometimes for as long as 10 days, but the average is 3) and charge 10% GST, pushing the total to around $1,722.00 (they include freight-on-GST). It is unfair to have others in a small order group carry the burden of a GST impost; the order should be split up 2 or 3 with each one under the GST-free threshold.
