    Jersey Customs (paying for declaration)

    Sold an iPhone on eBay last Friday and the person who won lives in jersey. Now I set my eBay to UK only (didn't want to deal with anything internationally). Someone won the bid from Jersey because it's UK

    Anyways I've sent the item to jersey even though it's not mainland U.K and it's been held at the depot. I've been told they're awaiting the payment for declaration.

    Do I have to pay this or the buyer?
    I can't find much information on eBay or the internet and wondered if anyone has any knowledge or experience.

    I take it you stuck a customs form on (CN22 or CN23 if using Royal Mail) and declared the value? What was the value?

    Jersey isn't in the UK it's a Crown Dependency and as such has specific rules for imports from EU.

    The buyer is the importer therefore he/she should be paying.

    Great stuff. I sent it using Interlink Express and I asked the lady for her number and email (for tracking purposes) never knew that customs needed her number too so I've messaged the woman on eBay to explain all of this. It sold at £350 + £6.99 shipping. Just hope it's not going to backfire on me

    Thanks for your help

    only thing is , if she doesn't pay the import tax - she will file a complaint for non receipt and ebay / paypal will refund her !

    If she files for non receipt , she will get her money back - SADLY ! ebay are a law of their own !

    You have to prove delivery, not just proof of posting, in order to win any eBay dispute.

    what is the custom charge? will you get the phone back if she does not pay it?

    To avoid this happening again, in your eBay account where you select the countries / regions you don't post to, there is a "Channel Islands" box you can tick. Its in the "Domestic" section, which is a bit confusing.
