It depends, because in Europe (I live in Germany), VAT is only added if
the value + shiping exceeds 25 Euro and customs are only added, if the
value exceeds 150 Euro

It does NOT discriminate American sellers, because German sellers have to
bill the VAT too

Also I buy regulary in the USA and even with heavy USPS costs plus Import-VAT
I am mostly lesser expensive as if I buy in Germany...
