That's really subjective - especially considering there are three versions out there (four if you count the TV cut as a version).Is this film any good? Never watched.
You now only get correct USA price on Zavvi USA website if you have a delivery address that is in USA@paulboland hope you are well and hope you don’t mind me asking if you managed to check if there was a difference in postage if you set up an account from different login details to UK on the USA website?
I will test later this week by setting up a new account on Zavvi USA with different login details to Zavvi UK to see what happens when I enter a delivery address based outside USA
I did relook at this after ordering on Amazon USA and now not sure as the difference is minimal but zavvi packaging is worse than amazon
do you also mind confirming if it is correct on zavvi USA that my payment details have disappeared, - take it that’s because it’s a dif site and I need to put it back in to confirm as a safety meassure.
your knowledge on this has been a great help as it’s a bit of a minefield
$34.99 + Vat does not lead to price been $69.99in case anyone is wondering checked with zavvi that the price incs the vat and duties etc hence the price hike when it goes onto the basket.
Therefore just ordered this version and cancelled the general version on Amazon USA
Arrow USA only releases are shipped from USA warehouse@paulboland do you have any idea where zavvi are likely to actually ship this from? I know this is a US exclusive release, but I'm unsure if it'll still come from UK/Guernsey either way..
I've just managed to order it via zavvi US to my UK address, at the $34.99 price. It wasn't working previously and only came up as $69.99. Trying to workout the liklihood of customs charges..
Right, so it'll be sent from a USA warehouse in that case either way. Cheers paul.Arrow USA only releases are shipped from USA warehouse
Zavvi USA that sells UK only releases are shipped from Warrington or Guernsey
Zavvi are registered for IOSS but that applies to items been shipped to EU addresss and ordered from Zavvi UK or the other european Zavvi websites
EU Vat is included in price for those orders if value is €150 or less
These are shipped from Warrington or Guernsey mostly with odd item sent from a EU warehouse
Zavvi USA is a separate website from Zavvi UK/IE/DE etc etc
When Arrow do a same releases in UK and USA
Zavvi USA is selling the USA version but if they sold out of USA version they might ship UK version if they still have any available of UK edition
You likely will have tracked shipping for items sent from USA tacking might work to your address or just when it leaves USA
You might have Vat to pay for a USA item shipped from USA when getting delivery in UK it will depend on if Zavvi pay the USA courier that Vat payment themselves or they don't
It's still showing price for me as $69.99 at checkout before postage is added when I select my delivery address in Ireland
That price includes UK and EU Vat + a zavvi mark up they using which is not right in my opinion
Might been a glitch that since fixed that let you order at $34.99
I justed tested UK using my An Post AddressPal UK virtual addresss I use for HMV orders and showing $34.99 + $2.49 shippingRight, so it'll be sent from a USA warehouse in that case either way. Cheers paul.
Odd, I've tried it again now and it's still working for me. $34.99 plus $2.49 delivery to my UK address in Wales. Maybe it's because you're trying an Irish address?
According to the international shipping section on zavvi US, the $2.49 shipped option to the UK isn't tracked, so I may not get a tracking number. In regards to uk vat, as you say, I suppose it's anyone's guess.
They say they include it (even though they charge much more than necessary) when the price is upped to $69.99, so they may do for me here regardless of the glitch. Or they could equally not as well. I'll have to take the gamble.
Aslong as it's not just my account then, which makes it less of a glitch and more like it's intended. God knows what they can get away with.. technically shipping it to themselves first may not count as importing? Who knows. I'll find out come October.I justed tested UK using my An Post AddressPal UK virtual addresss I use for HMV orders and showing $34.99 + $2.49 shipping
It might be Zavvi for UK address are going to have those parcels shipped from USA to UK then reship from UK but that just a guess
Not sure though if they can get away in doing that now with the changes to import/export rules
You will find out either way when you get delivery
Hopefully you avoid customs
USA release though the discs are made in USInterestingly the non zavvi exclusive art varient they're selling is still coming up at $69.99 for me for UK delivery. So it's got me thinking it may be something to do with something they can do internally, in regards to moving around their own exclusives.
Plus, the delivery timescales on a uk delivery still states 2-3 days, which unless that's a stupid copy and paste, surely would mean it's being shipped from the UK/Guernsey rather than US.
Oh yes, I appreciate all that paul. I'm just purely spitballing the set of circumstances that could of come together to bring out this result. Who knows what happens internally really.USA release though the discs are made in US
These don't have BBFC age ratings
Arrow would still have to import the USA discs and packaging into UK if they was to ship direct to Zavvi in UK
There are rules in regards to a retailer or distributor importing and exporting goods
Arrow Films even though are registered as a business at the THG Head office they are still based as their previous address and use their existing distribution center to ship products to retailers Amazon/Zavvi/HMV etc etc
Arrow Films are a separate business to Zavvi even though THG own Zavvi
Lots of business that THG own or have majority shares in are registered at THG head Office but are run as separate bussiness the actual companies are located elsewhere
Some are based in UK/EU/USA and other countries
Arrow are also based in USA they use MVD Entertainment Group (MVD Distribution) for distribution of USA releases to retailers based in USA
As this is a USA release it would be item imported from USA even if Arrow was then to reship to Zavvi in UK
