UK - Custom Fees?

#1
Hey all,

This is mainly towards people in the UK that have ordered previously from america!

My brother's hoping to order some memory from ebay.com but i'm tryingto work out for him if it's actually worth him ordering it, paydelivery, then the chance of customs searching fees compared to justbuying over here.

I've never ordered anything overseas before - anyone know the chanceof/approximate price of customs sneaking through my bro's package? (yesi know how dodgy that could sound..)

Thanks a lot!

Customs is charged on anything over £18. There's a slight chance it might get through otherwise depending on the packaging.

you will be charged 17.5% VAT plus a customs charge (usually isn't much depending on the original price) and Royal mail charge of about £4-5 if its delivered by them

Ah damn yeah; The current bid is $300, there or there-abouts.

I think the bloke said the delivery is only $10 which seemed a bit low but <shrugs>

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
