Note that this amount contains the cost of shipping to the US, US
customs, and the margin for the US seller.

[extra costs are more than 60 Euro]

I imagine that Pulster won't import 10-packs from the US. They will
probably order larger quantities directly in China, so instead of paying
for shipping to the US, paying US customs, then shipping to Europe and
paying European customs, they only have to pay for shipping to Europe
and pay European customs. So that makes it quite a bit cheaper already.
And the bigger quantities should help too. Even if they import from the
US, I'm sure they get a much better price for 100 10-packs than we get
for a single 10-pack.
