Question Imports from China - What is the real cost: Looking for someone who has been there, done that.

I been trolling Alibabba and found LOTS of DTG printers that are impressive and affordable from China....on the internet.
However, when I begin to speculate on the real cost, they all become less attractive.


Question 1. For those of you who have imported a DTG printer, (code 8443.51.50) what duties did you have to pay? 3%, 15%, 30%.


Question 2. Have any of you found a way to more easily determine these tariff rates using online sources?

Question 3. Does it make sense to order multiple printers, and all maintenance parts in duplicate from the very beginning. (Same Epson critical parts)



What I am seeing is when it is all added up, by the time shipping, tariffs, redundancy and 'figure it out yourself' learning curve, buying domestic may actually be less costly.


What has been your import experience and costs?
