I once had to pay the 8 pounds for an item that had attracted 89 pence in VAT. I was NOT pleased.
On the other hand (I HOPE no-one in authority is watching) from time to time our postman - who gets well fed up - will just drop something with a PAY NOW sticker on it in our parcel bin. I have virtuously waited for a note from customs asking why I didn't pay - and I have never got one yet...
Gregory, I know that feeling. Having to pay 13 euro extra on a charge of only 3 euro in tax. And btw, I don't know how it is in the UK, but that charge is not from the post, but from customs.
And how lucky that your postman just drops it in your parcel bin. That never ever happens here in the Netherlands. If there is a sticker on it, they will not give it unless you pay. And they always forward it to your home address, instead of the postbox. Annoying!
