    Re: Overseas Purchase

    Yes the only issue is how you pay.

    If your school has a CC then it's easy otherwise you're looking at paypal or international money order is $'s or a bank transfer.

    The other issue is the possibility of customs duty on what you import - I have been stung with this in the past.

    Re: Overseas Purchase

    Import duty, vat, shipping. Warranty? How do you send it back if it breaks? I can see auditors being unimpressed already :P

    Re: Overseas Purchase

    I bought some software from the states - it was half the price than buying it from a UK reseller

    I got it on my CC and just give the bursar my statement and get it back in expenses :twisted:
