Yet, I felt that shipping, credit card charge (+ something else?) was adding to the price more than I expected.

I have been lucky, multiple orders during the years from you-love-it and everything went great. But I believe they won't handle all the orders well..

Foil kites are quite pricey hence better to have a good look before buying.

But, Gerrit worked for me with all Mwst papers done and paid back to me 19%.

I have had good experience with both shops, but have way more orders with youloveit. I would recommend both.

I've only bought from you-love-it and have had good experiences. It can sometimes take a little longer than expected for items to arrive and they may not have everything in stock, but Gerrit has always offered me a similar or better product for a discounted price if that's the case.
