That is a whopping 100% difference. How come and how can I find cheaper electronics? Is it only possible with taiwan local produced electronics? Does it more sense to buy those products on amazon.com and ship them to Taiwan?
Because International companies order the newest and greatest with their huge markets instead of like eight stores in Taiwan selling 20 items instead around the world a huge conglomerates can sell millions of same items.
And Taiwan doesn’t allow hundreds of other local producers to sneak stuff out and sell to the local market on the street you know because Taiwan complies with International rules and laws and regulations and agreements and that’s why Taiwan is so successful now.
If you want the most options and the latest and greatest and also cheaper than buying in Taiwan then shop outside of taiwan.
Another factor is that FCC is cheaper than NCC (Taiwan version of FCC).
For comparisons sake, FCC certification of a product costs around $1,200, while NCC costs around 100,000 NTD. All that is per sku.
