bharath egala : I want to import lead acid battery scrap. I have checked the price of the product with dealers. When I checked the shipping history of the product in a few websites, the price that other importers get the same product for is almost double the price I have checked with. Why is it so? Has it got anything to do with tax? Please let me know.
