Because it's expensive business saying "Gimme Money!"

Royalmail pay off the customs fees and expects to you pay them for recieving your parcel. Its a rip off imo, but there not complaining because that'd mean you don't get your parcel and thats an unhappy customer and I'm sure they have plenty of them.

£8 is Royal Mail's standard price.

Is that actually possible or is it just a wish?

Either way its a joke were not even given the choice. So now ive paid £29ish for 3 tshirts plus £4-5 delivery plus £5 vat plus £8 charge to have my package delivered...

I think UPS charge a minium of £11........so it could have been worse!
