UK

Russia

  • Ergohaven being mentioned on r/ErgoMechKeyboards for Ergonomic keyboards (introduced in the reddit post here)

Second-hand

  • r/Mechmarket Subreddit : check what is on offer (check the [EU] in the title), or post what you want to get and state that you are in EU.
  • Ebay : you can find some second-hand keyboards, keycaps, and other components from UK or Germany

Chinese shops

  • The bigger ones: AliExpress, banggood, Gearbest.
  • TaoBao : Chinese language only and you usually need a proxy to locate a product and reship. Qtan is a famous guy who is a trustful proxy. He has also a site here: http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/contact and also sells on Ebay.
  • https://www.yunzii.com/ : free shipping to EU above $45 (but beware of customs). They offer everything from kits, complete keyboards, through key-caps/switches into desk-mats and cables.

Japanese shops

i.e. if you want a Topre board or an Elecom Trackball

  • Amazon Japan : priority shipping is usually around 8-15€ (5-7 days). Customs tax should be high but the last time we only paid 5€ for a 45€ trackball (maybe Amazon has found a way to import to another European warehouse first?)

Hi @Michael-ONEofZERO this list is only for shops in Europe (or shipping to Europe). I couldn't find in your site any information about shipping to Europe. BR

Hey guy - I've been buying from https://www.yunzii.com/ from quite some time and never had any problem with shipping to EU. They offer everything from kits, complete keyboards, through key-caps/switches into desk-mats and cables. Is it possible to add them to the list? As far as I know it's a China based shop.

Loob.no a.k.a. Keyb.no have shut down recently, so can probably be removed from the list.

Oh, good to know it! Thanks God that I've not ordered something from them, I've almost bought a keyset.
Maybe you can create a list of untrustable shops, so someone will not ask again. ;)
Thanks again!

Add https://42keebs.eu/
Mostly PCBs, tools and accessories.
Located in Czech Republic, not a big selection but quite reasonable prices. Delivered a few days earlier than advertised, which was a nice surprise.

Loob.no (a.k.a. Keyb.no) has been removed.

Hey!
Perhaps the UK stores should be taken into a separate category? UK is not the EU.
We'll have to pay a 20% fee for the order from there.

I agree with this. Ordering from UK being in the EU is not so cheap anymore.

Thanks @Black-millenium and @LukMas for the suggestion. I moved UK-based shops into a separate category.

I build keeb-finder.com, a comparison website that features over 20 shops.
Maybe that would be something you could add to the list.

Hello Patrick, the site looks useful in general, but I cannot find a filter to only search for items available in EU. If you add such a filter, we could add it to the list along with the other comparison sites.

Hi, great list!
What about https://shelter.shop/
Have not bought anything from them, but seem to be in EU.
Cheers!
