Parallel importing

When an importer finds a cheaper price of a good or equivalent good on the world 

Market

 and imports the good instead of paying higher 

Local

 prices. These imports tend to be outside authorized importer channels, and are often carried by ordinary tourists. Goods that do not incur heavy transportation costs are most 

At risk

 from parallel 

Import

. Authorized retailers, who are not allowed to source goods from parallel importers, generally oppose this practice since it makes them non-competitive against unauthorized retailers who can source these relatively cheap goods.
