1 - pricing
All prices on this web are still in Kč (CZK = czech crown) only. These prices include VAT (mostly 20%). The tax is deducted in the case of shipment out of EU. Czech crown is relatively stabile currency and you can approximately compute your prices in Eur or dollars according to rates shown in following table. Final price depends on actual rate.
(You have to divide listed price in Kč by the appropriate rate. For instance if the price is 270 Kč, it is cca 10 Eur (incl. VAT) or 8.5 Eur (excl. VAT) or 11 dollars (excl. VAT).)
2 - shipment cost
There are shipment cost for standard parcel (pricing of Czech post). Small shipments (with value up to 20 Eur or USD) could be sent much more cheaper as registered letter. Prices listed in the table are without VAT. Shipments inside EU must be VAT charged (20%, with exception of orders placed by VAT registered companies).
*) plus 3 Kč per each 1000 Kč of shipment value (exact price)
**) plus 0.11 Eur per each 36.9 Eur of shipment value (approximative price, depends on actual rate)
***) plus 0.14 USD per each 47.8 USD of shipment value (approximative price, depends on actual rate)
3 - payment
We accept bank transfers regularly. Other possibilities are PayPay system (this is not Pay Pal, but Pay Pay - these two systems are similar but not the same), sending of cash money in the letter and "Anelik". We do not accept credit cards.
It is necessary to use "all charges paid by orderer" checkbox. In other case, the incoming international bank transfer are significantly charged (about 150 Kč or 6 Eur) and we cannot accept this charge.
This is the payment method used by some Russian customers. It function well and there are no charges on my side. Sorry, I do not know anything more about it.
Simple and nearly without charges on both sides. Details as follows.
Pay Pay (www.paypay.com) is simple and cheap. It is not so much known as PayPal, but I feel it more advantageous. It is profitable to open PayPay account even for single payment.
1 - Open an Pay Pay account. Anybody who has email address can register with PayPay. The account is created automatically after your correct registration and veryfying your email. The process is free of charge and takes approximately 3 minutes.
2 - Transfer to your PayPay account a little more money than is needed for your order (the amount is on the pro-forma invoice you will receive from us). (Received payment to PayPay account is free of charge.)
3 - Transfer the amount needed by pro-forma invoice directly to our bank account. This operation is charged 0.22 EUR / 6.23 Kč (January 2007) - it is really cheap. Yes, we have PayPay account as well and transfer to PayPay account is even cheaper (free of charge), but we prefere direct transfer to our bank account which is in czech crowns (because we still use PayPay seldom and this simplify our bookkeeping very much). The payment will be in Kč (CZK) and if your PayPay account is in other currency, the PayPay exchange rates will be used (www.paypay.com/b_menu/exchange_rates.php). Difference between middle and selling rate is standard, but it is the main charge in this low-cost system.
4 - You can transfer the remaining money back to your bank account, or left them on PayPay for future use.
4 - packaging fee
Only shipment with very small value (under 12 Eur or 15 dollars) or shipment difficult to pack (containing long rods, long flexi-tracks, especially in combination with large sheets) are charged. Maximum value 1 Eur.
