Only that in this case there is no agreement.
But it is irrelevant, shops are not passing on their info of VAT refunds to Swiss customs.

How do you think this worked?
Hmm, how about Dack Rambo said where and when he paid import VAT, how much the value (gross or net, they can do the math) of the glasses was, and then they checked if they had registered a coresponding import VAT payment at that border post at that specific time.

BTW: By law and regulations you are supposed to keep the Swiss customs recipes regarding paid import VAT in tourist traffic at least a year Art. 96 ZV https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#a96

Yes you miss something. The telephone line from German customs to Swiss customs. It is known that they give each other tips about incoming goods which might be smuggled.
If someone is interested in the finer details maybe Mr. Pittet is able to tell more:

or you simple have a glance in the relevant binational treaty.
https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...927/index.html
See Art. 44 and also Art. 11
So yes, there is indeed an agreement in place.
