So after years of never touching the net when it comes to shopping, my first online experience is going to be a big one (if I decide to go through with it, which I surely intend to), on the australian games workshop site there is a set of 100 boyz and a metal warboss for 300$ with I think its 22$ or so shipping.
NOW because our exchange rate is so good with america everything is cheap as chips right now and that means, after factoring in tax, and the shipment cost, I can get the same box from around 250$
I was just wondering if this is correct. our dollar is worth 95american cents and I made an american games workshop account to make sure I got the numbers right, after the shipment cost, tax and the actual product cost, its $232, and theres an extra $11 because of the exchange rate, so this factors to about 243 american dollars? meaning a saving of about 60 bucks for me?
Also, is it 100$ reputable? I would absolutely HATE to sink 250$ into my first online purchase to have it blow up in my face somehow. So what does everyone think? Am I doing it all right?
After all this I realized it said "estimates only" so this is what it came to
Value Added Tax(Included in)
and there is a 10$ extra because of the exchange rate, meaning the full cost comes to around 224 AUS dollars, meaning a saving of almost 80 bucks. downright awesome if you ask me.

You might want to double-check the tax and duty implications before ordering. I don't know laws in AUS, but I know that if I were to import stuff like that from the US to the UK, I'd have to customs clear it, and could (if the value was too large) end up paying excise duty (and VAT) on the value of the invoiced goods. ALso remember that prices in the US usual are without the inclusion of sales tax, though that may be waived for international customers.
so tax for such an item could reach what? I'd really like more knowledge on this, since as I said it is the big first online purchase ever.
You wouldn't have to worry about sales tax, since it's based on whatever state you're in, so I would imagine you wouldn't have to deal with it.
But sales tax is never included in prices anyway, so what you're seeing on the US site is what the items cost without tax.
