Buying stuff from Ebay suppliers in the USA

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I wanted to buy this little meter from the UK, in the shops it's about £30 to £40, on ebay UK sellers have it for £20 inc postage.

However From the USA I could buy 3 of them for about £28 and probabaly sell the spare two back on ebay to UK buyers and get my money back.

1) has anyone used paypal to send money to someone in the USA? Is it fairly simple and are there any charges?

2) I'm worried about import duties, what do you think the likely hood of being grabbed by customs is? The value of the three items is $44.25
