Can you purchase a license online for a company located outside the US?

Created: 28 May 2013 | 2 comments

Hi,

Is it legal to purchase a Symantec product license from your US official website for a company located in another country than USA? It seems that when you shop on your website, you've a limited list of countries available to choose for the billing information.

In my case, I want to purchase a license for a company located in China. Is it mandotory then, to purchase the license from one of your official partner in China?

On your website, the license for Backup Exec 2012 with 1 year support costs $1,162.66 before VAT. I asked for a quote to one of your official reseller in Suzhou and the same item costs 8,000 RMB ($1,305.78) before VAT. Is it normal to have a price difference of $143?

...the difference in price is down to import duties and additional tax.

Thanks!

The remaining is the TAX amount charged. It is beneficial to purchase the product from the official partner itself.
