It’s not always easy here in Switzerland, trust me. But from what I read here, I am happy live in Switzerland. But we too have some additional charges with the delivery.

I think we can all agree that it's just sad these measures have to be taken. I to 100% believe IHUK have thought this through more than once. From my understanding, the thing us all (me included) care about most, is having access to the full lineup, especially releases that are not stocked by any EU/German resellers. UHR, shirts, wallets, jackets and what not.

Also, from what I understand, the cost driving factor for IHUK is per shipping and not per item / per value (correct me, if I'm wrong). So, theoretically, if we could bundle up all German orders, that would make the cost/item negligibly low. Certainly lower than 75€ (or 90€ in the worst case).

I'm 99% sure IHUK have taken all options into account, but still, here's an idea from the naive customer I am:

IH Germany* offers the full lineup through their web shop
IH Germany* collects orders (from German customers only) over a certain time period (e.g. 1 month)
IHUK sends that collected order in one shipping to IH Germany
IH Germany* ships to customers (and, if necessary, charges a reasonable shipping fee of e.g. 10€ for it)

This is basically stacking, but as a group.

*
If IH Germany does not want to do this, any other German reseller may be willing to? It certainly seems attractive!
If no reseller will do it, we could even arrange it ourselves? I've heard of the World Tours. So I have no worries we can organize a bundled order. After only 1,5 years in this forum, I trust you fellow forum members more than my bank consultant. So I'd 100% prepay someone to collectively order for me. :P

This is just two cents from a rather new, but very happy IH customer, who just cried his heart out about the news,
but figured it'd make much more sense to try and find solutions.

Cheers from Munich

This is really bad to hear. Premium shipping costs on already premium prices.

I thought the cost driving factor are the customs that have to be paid in advance through ihuk, those would still be applied in that model and also depend on the value.
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

Great suggestions. I think that our plan is that this will naturally happen over time anyway. As German shops see a spike in demand for product from customers, they will in turn buy more and a wider range from us via preorders and therefore have more available to sell domestically.

The largest cost is the duty, vat, and fees applied as a percentage of the value of every item within one shipment.

I sneaked my way around the German surcharge this week while vacationing in the Netherlands  ;)
Great service as always, ordered Tuesday evening, shipped Wednesday morning, arrived on Thursday.
Funny enough, the shipment went to Cologne first (where I live), and was then forwarded to the Dutchies...

I didn‘t find any information on the website or forum about taxes when shipping from IH UK to Switzerland. Are the taxes covered by IH? Or will I have to pay them?

Thank you in advance!

PS: It might make sense to add this kind of information to the Shipping FAQ‘s.

They are not I am afraid. Shipping is included for purchases over USD200 or equivalent.  We’ll look at adding this info, thanks for the suggestion.
