Customs is sort of an import tax charged by the importing country. Naturally it should be borne by the person who imports the item, not the seller. Hope it helps.

Of course not. How can Massdrop keep track of the customs regimes for every country that they ship to?
Are there any online sellers that take care of customs duties for you?

Last I checked, Amazon or Newegg doesn't take care of customs in Indonesia. It's why there was a company that specifically took care of everything for your purchases at Amazon if you wanted to pay a 50% markup, which I guess is fair since import tax it fluctuates betwen 30% to 100% to sometimes 0% if you're really lucky.

Hey, i am from India and i have ordered several products from Massdrop. the customs charges are not included, usually anything around 4K INR is not charged any customs fee. over that you are looking at about 40 to 50 percent charges. e.g, i ordered smsl m6 dac amp which cost me about 9k INR including shipping and then i had to pay about 4.5k INR for customs. not a bad deal considering the price on indian sites was 25K INR for same product . i havent received any thing after the GST came in to effect so not sure whether it will increase or decrease the customs charges. there are a few thing on the way from massdrop to me in the next few weeks so i will find out soon.
dont be disheartened by the customs charges, most of the stuff available in massdrop is not available in India and even with the customs charges the final cost tends to be lesser than the cost for same stuff available for import on sites like amazon.

Nowadays, since May 2020, you can be taxed about 95% of the amount (Which is laughable) So if you order the 8k item, and ship it via DHL or FedEX you can expect your total Tax to also be 8000RS/- (LOL). I got a couple hoodies from an Anti Social Social Club drop where the order price was 9k and i had to pay 9.5k in taxes. Hope this helps. Cheers!

I know I am late but if I buy the Sennheiser hd58x jubilee ($170) from massdrop on black Friday and it will probably be around $120-130 on that day so how much will I have to pay for the customs and taxes because on their site it just says $15 shipping to India and that's it no info so I am curious to know

Usually custom Fees aren't included in shipping and are needed for the payer (which is you) to pay extras for it, usually if you don't buy in bulk, it will be okay. It won't cost much.

Import duties vary from country to country. In Indonesia, it's 30% on anything over $75. It could go upwards to 100% if they deem it a "luxury" item. A $200 headphone in a third world country will almost always be deemed a "luxury" item. Then it's just your haggling prowess and luck of the draw of how corrupt the custom officer is. It's why I almost never buy directly from Massdrop to Indonesia, save for some cheap $49 M220 my cousin wanted...
