I purchased a Melrose Flap from Nordstrom last thursday and the shipping is real quick this time. only takes 4 days.. ( normally it takes 1-2 weeks) but sadly.. not sure is there any mis-communication.. I through they agreed to mark the item as $300USD for overseas customer but ended up fedex called me today and charge me $298 for shipping..

I have no option to pay it and get the bag and sort it out afterwards or... return the item to sender which will takes another 1-2 week to sort it out until i get my bag again..

I choose the first one... and I emailed my SA.. not sure will chanel able to do something about it.. it is the 2nd time that it happened... and it realy annoys me.. because if they cannot do it, just tell me and i have an idea how much is the total cost of the bag ... while now.. Fedex is giving me a surprise !

congrats on the bag. Usually for overseas orders you need to pay tax and duty.....i had the same happen to me twice. Unfortunately, something you can avoid.

Congrats on your new bag... sorry about the added costs, which your SA did not disclose to you (or made a mistake on). Contact your SA and tell them that this is the 2nd time this has happened, and what they can do about it. Anyways, even if nothing can be done about the cost, be happy knowing you were able to get such a wonderful bag...!
