  1. Shipping parcel from US

    @lunaCH These prices came up as standard fees for shipment. I am not sure if VAT, customs etc is on top of this. A year or so ago, I ordered directly from a cosmetics company, and they just had a shipping price. The current vendor does not offer this service, so ill have it shipped to a friend in the US who will then send it to me. Only if I can find a cheaper option. 
  2. Hello all,   I need to ship some cosmetics for personal use from the US to Germany. Its a small box, should weigh no more than 2-3kg. When checking DHL prices, it roughly costs between 150 USD to 200 USD to have it delivered to Germany. Its quite expensive, plus the shipping costs more than what the products are worth.    Is there any way to have shipment done cheap? A shared shipment etc?    Thank you!  
  3. Full Time Work Contract Termination

      Honestly, I don't know about that either. That is why I was hoping to get from this forum. 
  4. Full Time Work Contract Termination

    @optimista I agree with you. I started applying for new positions on the 16th, and have already landed a few interviews. Since this has become a culture within the company, I was hoping if there is a way of getting back to them, but well if it really is that time consuming, then I guess why waste my time.    @engelchen Based on what I read here and there, the employer needs to have a valid reason to end the contract. And since in this case they have none, at least not any that I am aware of. 
  5. Hello all,    I was hoping to get some information about some of the issues I have lately encountered at work.    I work as a full-time employee with a firm in Frankfurt, and I was recently told that "it would be best if I find another job".    To give you a bit of context in to how I have been performing, I am the only person in my team (it should be 3 people minimum at any time) for the last 4 months, I have on my own delivered higher revenue even that what they made during Q4 2019, which had Black Friday, Christmas etc. There is an online record of all these things, and can be proved. I did not put any of the projects on hold owing to low capacity, instead even took up new ones and delivered. Nothing comes to my mind that should have upset my employee, no project messed up, no campaign missed, no revenue targets that were not achieved.    There is a lot of political bullshit going on in the office, and I never indulged in it. I think, after a year they owe me a pay raise, and they just did not want to offer a promotion or a pay raise, instead want to replace me with an intern.    Anyhow, I have received this news without a written explanation as to what the reasons are, and I don't believe it to be fair.    I want to know what I can do, I definitely do not want to stay here and work any longer, but can I sue them? Since I have not breached anything in my contract, and have delivered more than one person can. 
  6. Hello everyone,    I have been pursuing to switch my current visa to a business visa, and have hired an agency to help me with a business plan. My business model includes importing cell phones, and cell phone accessories from China. Owing to the current circumstances, does anyone know if importing cell phones to Germany from China is a legal challenge?    From what I know, prior to COVID19, it was business as usual. I just want to make sure I am not missing out on any legal dynamic here before submitting my business plan to the IHK.    Any other suggestions to keep in mind regarding this business plan would be extremely helpful as well. Thank you!
