Well you had NCIX up there. If I recall NE didn't have much of a physical presence in Canada. You people are very spread out over a large mass. Of couse shipping is going to be expensive coming from another country.
This really cools down the choice between Amazon and Newegg for me. Stopped using Amazon when they dropped a warehouse down in Central FL.
Amazon vs. Newegg? I really don't care, I use both. The only thing that annoys me about Newegg is paying that $2.99 rush fee to get it out the door.
The thing that annoys me about Amazon is their awful, Awful, AWFUL search system. It's absolutely stupid. You're looking for 2TB NVMe PCIe SSDs, you sort by lowest price, and you end up with five pages of cables, SATA mounts, thumb drives ... bullshit. They have so much shit in their search, but you have to look at every page in case you miss something. And after you pass a certain point you realize they aren't sorted by price anymore.
Don't get me started about searching for clothes on Amazon (I'm 6' 7.5"). Even Walmart can figure out how to find you your clothes better than Amazon can.
Newegg will begin collecting sales tax on most purchases shipped to Texas on October 1, 2019. Please note that there will be no sales tax collected on purchases processed on or before September 30, 2019.
I just got an email from the egg and it says I have to pay tax in Oregon.
I was just looking up storage shelves [on Amazon] a couple days ago
This is about sales taxs. Also those companies do pay their taxs. Anyway it is only a matter of time before all e-commerce start collecting sales tax. Surprised it took so long as is. States have been leaving billions on the table.What I want to know is when is the government going to make Amazon, Netflix and the other big tech companies pay taxes?
My sentiments Texas brother. Newegg has had no drop off over the years imo, seems I differ from others here. Amazon can be a day faster sometimes as we have a warehouse in San Antonio. Doesnt matter, I shop for the lowest price, corporations have no soul. What I do not want is fewer and fewer players in the online pc parts game. This is a kick to the crotch.
Eh, not unless it's an "I NEED IT NOW!" item. As it stands they only collect state taxes, however there's been a number of things added to various measures over the year that local taxes can be 1 to 2% more than the state sales tax. The biggest kick in the nuts would be MAP items, which I fucking hate with hellfury, but luckily for me most of those items that I do want that are MAP I would probably end up spending at least a few bucks in gas driving to get because "local" can be a fairly good drive away and I can wait a few days to get things, even less if Amazon has it.the States need the tax money but this might cause folks to shop locally but I doubt it because the item plus the local tax will be quite a bit higher than buying online
I have been paying sales tax on purchases for a long time. I have no issues with paying sales tax, but I do have an issue on how it's determined what sales tax I pay. The sales tax paid should be based on the location of the business you purchase from, not where I live.
That was an argument that was made in the late 90's when states were first looking into state sales tax on ecommerce. If that logic held true, then states like Oregon should have had all the e-tailer shipping hubs because they have no sales tax, they have a low cost of living, and more business-friendly labor laws than New Hampshire or Delaware, making it cheaper to locate there. However, businesses are predatory and will always work find a way to skirt the intent of the law. One state (Washington?) was prepared to pass a state initiative that allowed goods shipped out of the state from businesses that had no storefront to be non-taxed (in order to keep their distribution center employment.) In another case, a similar business (Egghead?) was preparing to relocate their sales office to Oregon, but leave their shipping/warehouses in the state where they were already located. Federal law prohibits taxation of goods moving between states.
Industry City in California was known for having local laws that were allowed to supersede state law because it was built to be a special industrial zone.
I live in Hillsborough Fl, and have an added 1.5% on top of state, IIRC, we're the highest sales tax in the state.Eh, not unless it's an "I NEED IT NOW!" item.
