Got it from Manchester 19%.
Found a store on ebay. No duty and 3 day delivery.

No duty as long as customs does not detect the scam and then you have to pay up.

But surely you are not a tax dodging sponger: you dutifully pay duties before importing the goods...

I'm buying a product from a UK retailer. Where's the scam?
If you order a pair of jeans from a UK clothing store, is it a scam?

Those would not be without duty...
Duty-free is only for people outside the EU

(unless it was under €150, p&p included, and sold directly to you from outside the EU... Not via a UK vendor...)

If you buy goods from another European Union (EU) country the following rules apply:

No Customs Duty is payable.
Excise Duty is payable on alcohol and tobacco products and must be paid at your Revenue office before the goods are despatched to you. Please see alcohol products tax and tobacco products tax for further information about Excise Duty.
Value-Added Tax (VAT) is normally payable. The rate of VAT payable depends on whether or not the seller is registered for VAT in Ireland. You will find information about VAT rates in our VAT section.
In the case of excise goods VAT is payable at the rate that would apply if the goods were purchased in Ireland. This must be paid at your Revenue office before the goods are despatched to you.

I bought from an English shop and paid our normal vat rate at checkout.
Again... Where is the scam?

My mistake then.
I did not pay attention that Gearbest was non-EU.
I stupidly jumped to conclusions.

Congrats on a good deal.
