My experience has been the same. When I was buying/selling baby carriers alot I neven had one with dutys attached. Nor have any of my BE shipments ever been affected. I am very thankful!I haven't had a ton come in from BE, but I think 3 this year. And none of them had duties or customs fees added. But, they weren't all in one order, so I don't know what happens with larger shipments. But I have bought many bags and baby carriers from overseas and nothing has ever had fees to be paid upon delivery.
Hi Moon, I've had three bags sent to two diff people in the U.S. who are coming to see me. My son being one of them, coming for Xmas vacay from college, who's bringing two of the bags: the Vermillion Madrid, and the Tan Bubble Chevre Stroke Me. The Nougat Milan is arriving on Jan. 5 ish. I think the Black Velvet Matte L.A. Satchel, I'll have sent to me in Mexico, and will have to pay 16% duty on. Mexico is tough. I try to have the bags sent to the U.S. and then plan a trip up there to collect. But lately, Moon, I'm thinking about moving to Florida. We'll talk. ha ha.
