Expensive shopping!

WTH is buying stuff from Home Assistant Nabu Casa so expensive, Dutch company no Benelux stores or international stores like Aazon for instance!

Bought the Blue in the past, had to pay almost as many for shipping, customs as the cost of the Blue itself.
Now I want to buy the SkyConnect, about €27 with shipping, VAT almost €50!

I don’t mind supporting the team, and pay gladley the Nabu casa subscription, but the other devices are just crazy, as an example I paid €43 for 2x Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 stick on Amazon in March!

I’ve had one on order for months and still no update on expected shipping, just the original timeline of December. Pretty poor customer service.
