    I've ordered from Yesasia, Play-asia and Amazon.co.jp but not Renchi.
    I have it shipped to HK so it's pretty cheap then I have it sent from HK to here while avoiding tax/duty/etc.

    YesAsia.com are import tax friendly although they don't like to ship sony stuff to the UK though.

    But Renchi do, and they are just as tax friendly [​IMG]

    Plus Play-Asia ship PSP & PS2 stuff to the UK, just not PS3 stuff, right now ...

    I buy all my imports from videogamesplus.ca (it's not on the list but highly recommended)

    Cheap and reliable, accept Paypal and various other payment methods.

    They've shipped everything I ordered to the UK in less than 5 days.
    Worth looking into when you have the chance

    yeah that's what website i use, they are completely import tax free, only problem is they charge in dollars so when i buy stuff from them i get charged a fee for currency conversion, they are good overall though and their shipping is fast too.

    Renchi have a drop box, in the payment screen, for selecting the invoice listed price ... the box shows percentage ... so what are you on about?

    i'm just saying what they said to me, i personally won't take the risk, especially for hardware that's costs a lot, also when i used their website i'm sure there wasn't a invoice box there to choose what price you want shown.

    I've used Play-Asia for many of my foreign DS/PSP/PS3 games.
    (I really want Taiko and Bemani for PS2 and a couple games for 360 but curse the region lock)
    Some games were cheaper on yesasia so I've bought a DS game from yesasia once, but usually I find play-asia cheaper.

    Mainly because I'd rather pay taxes than having to deal with my lost $150 shipment when its value was declared $20.
