To be safe, figure an additional 8% of the value on the invoice. It's roughly $2 USD per British Pound; so, if the invoice shows a value of 400 British Pounds, figure around $800 USD, and 8% = $64.Do we have to pay a custom tax when we recieve these BE bags since they ship from outside the US? I'm trying to figure out excatly what I will need to get my purple Love Me.
Oh kings, what amount did u ask them to fill in for you in royal mail? i am ordering a bag and since u are in AB i figure this will for for me when i ship it to ON!^^
With Royal mail, BE marks the package as a gift and a lower value so you don't pay any customs. At least I didn't have to but may depend on where you are from as well.
I've received two shipments from BE via DHL and was charged a 20% fee of the declared value each time. Another shipment from BE was shipped via Royal Mail and I still have not received a customs invoice for that one. I think I prefer Royal Mail.
