    depends which region you are from , mostly if you are from a region to which , your payment processor(clickbank etc) belongs I think you will have to pay tax or else you could avoid . Tough i don't pay tax because i am still below the annual threshold to pay VAT

    If you are in Europe and do want to do business with companies that are not EU based then you always have to pay VAT and custom tax when importing. The percentage is in every eu country different but usually around 20 fot VAT and customs between 1-10 % and also depends on what you are importing. That way it might not be cheaper for you to import. There are some tricks which you can try though but can pay off only when you do small quantity. I am in the business with export and import wholesale of consumer electronics so for some time I know how it works out in Europe.
