Robotech.com Shipping to Mexico Again
Por couestiones de disputa de tratados entre México y China, Robotech.com ajustó sus opciones de compras y ahora se puede comprar en México de nuevo!
Author: Steve Yun

IN ENGLISH: (Español abajo)

Mexico and China have recently become engaged in a trade war, and one of the effects of this dispute is that Mexico is imposing a 350% tariff on any products manufactured in China that enter into Mexico. This tax is even added to products that are made in China and sold from American stores, such as Robotech.com.

Unfortunately, because we have no control over international taxes, we can't include them in the shipping price of our products and any such tariffs have become the responsibility of our international customers. When we found out about the trade war between China and Mexico, we immediately stopped shipping to Mexico because we didn't want our customers to be stuck with a 350% tax surprise!

We are now pleased to announce that we have resumed shipments of products such as DVDs, music, apparel and books to our fans in Mexico. However, items that are "made in China" such as toys and certain collectibles will not be shipped to Mexico. Customers in Mexico who attempt to purchase toys will be given a notice about this situation and can remove the Chinese-manufactured products if they still want to order other Robotech products. Shipments of Chinese goods to all other territories, including Latin America, are not affected by this trade dispute.


EN ESPAÑOL:

Recientemente México y China han estado en una guerra comercial y uno de los efectos de esta disputa es el agregado de un impuesto de 350% a cualquier producto manufacturado en China que entre en México. Este impuesto también se agrega a los productos hechos en China que se venden en los comercios estadounidenses, como Robotech.com.

Desafortunadamente debido a que no tenemos control sobre los impuestos internacionales, no podemos incluirlos en los costos de envíos de nuestros productos y estos impuestos se han vuelto responsabilidad de nuestros clientes internacionales. Cuando descubrimos la guerra comercial entre China y México, dejamos de enviar a México inmediatamente porque no queríamos que nuestros clientes se quedaran atascados con un impuesto sorpresa del 350%!

Estamos complacidos en anunciar que hemos recomenzado a enviar a México con excepción de nuestros productos fabricados en China! Los DVDs, la vestimenta y los libros se encuentran disponibles nuevamente para nuestros fans de México. Sin embargo, los items "hechos en China" como los juguetes y algunos artículos coleccionables no se enviarán a México. Los clientes que deseen comprar juguetes recibirán una notificación y pueden quitar los productos manufacturados chinos si aún quieren ordenar otros productos. Todos los otros paises, icluidos lo de latino america, no fueron afactados en esta disputa.

 

The Robotech.com Store has resumed shipment of most items to our fans in Mexico. However, the trade dispute continues prevents us from shipping toys and certain collectibles made in China to Mexico.

All other Latin American territories are not affected.






Customers purchasing Chinese-made products will be alerted that shipment of such items to Mexico have been affected by the trade dispute.
