    Default Postage to UK

    not sure if you can do

    this, but I know some companies do.

    and that is to get around the import taxes, that on the packaging you could

    put \'Gift\'

    I\'ve just got a bill for the last package for an extra £10 for taxes...

    BOOO

    We can\'t mark it as a

    gift unless it really is, but we do mark the \"value\" at aproximately our cost of replacement, which should help

    quite a bit.

    i\'ve never had to pay

    tax for things sent to the UK from love scent [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] is it a random

    procedure, i.e. they decide to tax random packages, and so far I\'ve just been lucky?

    yeah this is the first

    time I\'ve ever payed custom tax...must be a random thing...they pick a package and do the paper work, every 1000

    or so...I dont know...they must be overwelmed with packages to keep up with it all.

    I´ve paid more than that if

    it makes you feel better. Did they also tell you what the max value is?
