We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: That's because duty is worked out on the declared value. Over and over again we see posted on these boards that marking a dress as a gift will avoid duty. This is incorrect and always has been. The only way to avoid paying duty on anything coming into Australia is to lie about the value which is of course illegal. Sending dresses is different, USA rarely checks packages so most get through, Canada and the UK are like Australia and check most but have a much lower threshold. The UK gift threshold is £36 for example, anything over that, duty will be charged
