quick question about amazon shipping costs from the usa

Firstly, hope this is in the right place...if not, please move! Ty.


I wanted to buy a book thats far cheaper on amazon.com than amazon.co.uk.

I remember reading a post about import charges if you order something over a certain amount but I can't find the post and relevant details. The book I want is $38 and a fair few quid less than on amazon.co.uk.

Also, any idea how long they take to ship it over on average?

Rep for useful info from those experienced with amazon.com.

Cheers!

Im sure if the item is £20 or under you dont pay any, usually takes about 2 weeks.

I think you might get away with $38

be careful that this doesnt get hit with customs, the customs limit is £18 and this will be approx £20 before p&p.

If it was hit with customs would it still make it cheaper?

Thanks guys

I think its probably better for me to stop faffing around and just get it from amazon.co.uk. At least I won't have to worry about any unexpected import charges cropping up later. Or it taking 2 WEEKS!!!!! yikes, didnt realise it would take that long...guess I was expecting it on the next concorde out of new york or something! :whistling:: instead of on the titanic

Thanks for all your help, appreciate it. Repped you both!!!
