Just found a box set at a very cheap price and was wondering if I would have to pay any charges on a DVD box set from USA ?
It's £16.96 with free postage

Well that was as clear as mud

The article says anything under £18 has no fees but in the answers it says £15.
Not that it matters now as the item is sold.
Also worth mentioning it is not always the declared value that applies, if something is under declared customs will increase the value to its normal value and charge any duties and taxes on it. Plus the delivery company normally ally a fee between £5-10 for processing the payment.
As it is over £15 you will have to pay the 20% vat amount and then whatever the courier charges for the collection of those fees.
And ensure your player can read ntsc which is the format the American dvd probably is Vs UK Pal

It used to be £18 then was reduced to £15, so you would be looking at VAT and delivery company charges.

Had the same problem when I bought the Cosmos Boxset from the US. The picture played in B&W! The O/P should be aware of this.
