So ordered some stuff from otakumode.com on 21st December, it got to the UK on 28th and sat in customs over Christmas and New Year, today I checked tracking to see this;

Date Time Location Tracking event
6/1/2015 4:49 Norwich Central Depot…+ Received at delivery depot
5/1/2015 22:55 National Hub Received and processed
5/1/2015 17:18 International Hub Revised charges to be paid
5/1/2015 14:47 International Hub Awaiting Customs Charging
28/12/2014 19:32 International Hub Awaiting Customs clearance
28/12/2014 19:26 International Hub Received in destination country

So am I getting charged a fee for the goods or will PF be delivering to me today/tomorrow?
As far as I am aware the threshold for items being sent as gifts is £15, the total for my order was $16.18 which is around £10.70, which is obviously under the threshold...

From what I have seen online the customs + PF fees are extortionate. Ive never had any problems with the 6 or 7 other orders from otakumode.
I have emailed PF but idk how long they take to respond.

ahhhhhhhhhhh.......
