GST Put the price up?

Just today, i was willing to purchase the purple/gold tundra, just yesterday the price was $284 AUD but for some reason its now $321.42 AND BELOW everything thats for sale says price includes GST, why has hobbyking only added this just now and inflated all of the prices of all their products? Is this just my browser or is there a new policy?

    Hey Jorge,

    We sent out an email about a week ago informing our Australian customers of this change. In case you didn't receive it, here is the content below:

    "From 1 July 2018, the Australian Government implemented legislation to impose goods and services tax (GST) on goods sold on and items imported into Australia which have a customs value of $1,000 AU or less, known as low value imported goods (LVIG). Starting 14 May 2019, will begin to calculate, collect and remit 10% GST on all LVIG sold on (Hint: now is the time to stock up on your favourite RC items before pricing changes come into effect - don't say we didn't warn you).

    Passion, value and service are what drive us at HobbyKing to bring you the very latest at the best price possible, while still maintaining quality and performance and we will continue to strive to do so.

    We're here to help if you need it. Visit the Help Centre for more info or contact us. To learn more about the new tax, click here:"
