    ebay help please EXPIRED

    hya i recently bought an item from a seller on ebay... it was a brand new 12mp camera, cost me about 80 pounds, however on friday i got a post office noticed stating that my item is at the main post office and that i have to pay a custom fee of 15 pounds to collect it

    obviously i emailed the seller and told him some lalalalalala but to no vail

    now im planning to open a paypal dispute but dont know if i should open one as a item not recieved, or not as described

    i am not going to collect the item.

    on the back of the leaflet is says that if not collected within a week the item gets sent back to the seller

    What country did you buy it from? If out of the UK then of course you will be liable for customs charges.

    You do understand what customs charges are right?

    You bought the camera from outwith the UK and are therefore liable for the charges

    Not the sellers fault

    Seller doesnt NEED to make you aware of customs charges

    HMRC will levy the charges at their discretion

    hmmn it did not state in the listing that custom charge was charged on top of the price,

    so you purchased something, without thinking about the charges and now you expect the seller to be out of pocket

    You are mentally challenged if you think you can import items from the USA and not pay any charges.

    Next you will tell us you can't import as many Chinese imports for free too.

    its not the sellers (from the USA) responsibility to inform you (from the UK) of the UK governments customs charges!

    You see where this is heading now?

    errr i bought plenty of things from ebay from overseas sellers and never had any custom charge.

    i always look out for listing that states that there are custom fees, maybe if u had a look ull see that some listing states that custom charges will be included within the price :whistling::whistling:

    go and get it, pay and enjoy your £15 lesson.

    I would imagine you may stay on the system for a none payment with customs regardles of whether you pick it up or not. Can't see there being a reliable link between the Royal Mail and HMRC

    Customs charges CANT be included within the price

    They are levied in the UK and not in the country of origin

    Do you need a bigger spade?

    You have never paid before because thay haven't investigated your item or it's below the limit.

    They can't put it in the listings as it is not always definite you will pay them.

    So you have been lucky! Just accept the charge & put it down to experience/bad luck.

    Yeah expire it before more people point out how wrong I am.

    be a man and admit you are wrong.

    "learned what manners is" nice use of english

    Stop being so mean guys.

    To the OP, the charges are nothing to do with the seller I'm afraid. When you've bought things in the past you've obviously been lucky. I think your best bet is to just bite the bullet and pay the £15.

    The OP just doesn't understand the custom charges as they have never dealt with them before. It doesn't make them "mentally retarded"

    No need at all.

    If I had made the mistake I wouldn't be opening up a paypal dispute, I'd own up, pay up, shut up and learn from it.

    Anything purchased from abroad over £18 think it is, can be liable to a customs charge, you were unlucky it got picked up, ive had the same thing a few times, not the seller its customs that make the rules
