    Hey did anyone else take advantage of the Olight sale? I ordered the X7R and a couple other things and got charged a 3% International Fee.

    Anyone else place an order and get hit with that? I’m a little pissed. It’s not a lot but it’s the principle!

    I didn´t bother to try this time. Didn´t really need anything, and If I´m remembering correctly I´ve been dissapointed with previous Olight sales only beeing availeble in the US. Great if it was this time, I could easily live with a 3% intl. fee, especially if shipping prices are reasonable.

    I recently had that issue with something I sold, I was charged an additional 3% fee. It actually stemmed from PayPal, they up-charge for international payments. That is probably where the 3% your referencing came from! PayPal much like its sister company FeeBay are greedy B%^$^&#!!

    Even though the shipping address was to US address and purchaser was in US he had an international address listed with PayPal.

    You’re exactly right. I did use PayPal. I’ll note that in the future and not use them!
