I imported goods and incurred £4.63 customs charge. Thats OK I was expecting it.
However I was charged £8.00 collection fee by the Royal Mail. thats about $13 (Robbing Ba$%&*&’s).
If you are importing to the UK have your seller mark the package “Goods to be Customs Cleared by the Importer” in large clear letters.
No royal mail handling charge will be payable and you will receive invoice for customs that you have to pay directly. Delays things slightly but no more than the way parcel force send you a letter normal post with website link to pay customs plus their handling fee.
