    Customs Charge

    ok so just received a card from royal mail telling me that I need to pay a fee on a hd-dvd i bought from DVD Pacific (duh me!)

    Planet Earth HD - $70.53 + $4.47 = $75 (£37)

    ...and was wondering why im being charged £14.15 fees?! should it not be 17.5% on the total value i.e. £6.48?! what happens if i decline the package?

    thanks for any help! steve

    ps. for future reference whats the limit on buying stuff from the US without getting hit by customs!??

    If the value of the goods is over £18.00 then you may get charged. You will also have to pay the 'Carrier', RM, PF or whoever delivers it a charge.
    This should explain:-

    If you don't pay, the item should get returned, but getting a refund will be difficult.

    thanks for your help! :thumbsup: think i'll just pay it off and take it as a lesson learnt! :-(

    only order stuff under £18 at a time as said above to avoid the charges, boxsets more often than not get picked up on

    Unless you email them & they mark it down or as a gift

    Don't think this makes much difference, I've just been done as well and it was marked as a gift. I beleive it has more to do with the contents and there value in the UK.
