EU purchasing is now available directly through our product shop. Due to EU regulations, when the billing address of the purchases is listed as being within the EU, VAT (Value Added Tax) must be applied. In some cases, the purchaser may have a VATIN (VAT Identification Number) that exempts that purchaser from paying VAT tax. This may be because the purchaser is a non-profit, a government entity, or because it has certain other tax exemptions or 'write-offs'. Please consult your finance person to check if your organization has a VATIN. If you do, please enter the VATIN prior to purchase. If we can verify the VATIN at the time of purchase, then VAT will not be applied. If we are unable to verify, but you believe your VATIN is valid, please email us at
