why..?

I have never had to pay charges because Amazon USA sends the packages to Amazon UK first, then they are dispatched from there.

i,ve had 6 delivries this year so far 2 have had customs charges some come via uk some via germany however both fees were ridiculous with £5 handling charge plus fee
be forwarned

Depends on the value/nature of your goods. Ive had high import duty/taxes to pay and then the item was broke! It then cost me to return to the sender for repair & i then got hit with with more import duties when she sent it back to me again - NEVER AGAIN!! I had previously had a couple of small items ie Keyrings,t-shirts,kids clothes without any hassle or extra cost, but they were under 50USD wich i believe is the threshold-i could be wrong though-it was a couple of years back.

thanks everyone. :)

its for a dvd boxset with shipping it comes to about $85 and the other one is $40.

do you know what type of charges on import tax, duty, handling, shipping i'd be looking at?

You will get stung big time its royal mail charges.
Or parcel force charges as well.
Import charge of £6.00 parcelforce handling charge £12.00 a rip off
What box sets do you want ????

If the order is under £18, it will avoid such charges
