PayPal is close to banning payment for lasers. Be careful making a claim, and try not to mention lasers, so it doesn't ruin it for the rest of us.

But try the seller, first. It is their job to get the item to you. you have no control over customs... in theory. It won't hurt to try.

yeah i contacted the seller , but with their holiday thing it will take a while , if they dont want to refund me , then ill just forget about it .


oh yeah we must congratulate the name of responsible officer at customs MR ANDREW ESBER for doing such a fine job at taking our lasers YOU JERK FACE BURN IN HELL .

you may need to build your own to sneak the pieces past the customs guys.

Have a look on Ebay Australia, They have heaps on there ready to go shipped from within Aus

I would be sort of careful buying higher powered lasers though unless it's on the forum here
As you'll be waaaay overcharged for something totally under-spec... As I said have a look on Ebay they have many "1mW" ones to choose from and they'll all be over spec :)

try the seller first then try with ebay. ebay will side with you if you have proof they where taken and that the seller wasn't any help if that ends up being the case.

Just post that you're looking for [insert item] in Aus. We have plenty of international members, some from Aus, they'd be your best shot.

If you just do a search for "laser pointer" then on the side bar with search options click Australia only
