    Had three caught now,.. I really don't mind paying customs but the handling fee =(

    There should be an option to pay customs upfront through BAF like some Ebay people offer. With it being privatised I dread to think what the handling fee might become D:

    Limit's 15, which ofc with the exchange rate changes a bit for $. Haha, it's worse trying to get the handling fee back once you've paid it .
    I can see why it gets people so much though, now it's not actually through RM though, it's entirely controlled by customs, assuming the 8 is still for 'handling'.

    But I thought it was a Royal Mail handling fee? You only get charged the Customs handling fee if it's over a much higher amount? D:

    Has that changed? I thought the import fee was for HMRC and the handling fee was for Royal Mail as they have to hold it, send the card, process the payment then deliver the item...?

    "Receiving mail from abroad

    All mail that enters the United Kingdom may be examined by customs, but normally letters, postcards and packets containing only documents or similar forms of correspondence are excluded.
    If you are receiving a package from overseas (unless it’s from another EU Country), please be aware that it may incur customs charges. Any package assessed as being liable for customs charges will also incur a Royal Mail handling fee of 8.
    Any goods imported into the UK over the value of 15 are liable to import VAT. Gifts between private individuals over the value of 36 are also liable for VAT. Goods and gifts over these values may also be liable for customs duty. You no longer have to pay customs duty for goods up to the value of 135, however you will still be required to pay import VAT and excise duty where applicable."

    Yeah, it's changed very recently Hazel, I only found out cos you might remember that customs charge I had back in April or so? Well anyway, I was only refunded the amount it was over (VAT), not the 8 handling fee, which I assumed I had to collect through RM. When I rang them recently it was explained to me that it's now all sorted by Border Force. I would say i'm surprised they haven't updated the website, but considering I was also told i'd be called back . . 2 days ago now i'm really not lol. This is all just what i've been told this week, i've also only been told it's been in effect since 'recently', no specific dates or nowt.

    I reiterate, this is all i've been told by RM and customs. Tbh i'm just looking to get a refund, if the amount is the same, it doesn't particularly bother me who it's going to.

    Wildcat has fixed their site again (at least the German/European one, which is what I used)
    They had the black steel with Labradorite inlay plugs on clearance sale, so I HAD to get them (even though they're 24mm and I prefer 25/26 but oh well). 6.99 euros a piece! I couldn't not order them since I've been eyeing them forever. And the shipping is like 3.50 euros.


    I'm gonna let you all know if everything arrives safely, I hope they sorted themselves out!
