Hi,
Been looking at buying a few blu-ray from Amazon.com. With shipping the items came to about £20, will I have to import tax? Havent ordered another from Amazon.com for years

Thanks for all the replies. Was just making sure that everything was still the same before I ordered anything.

Things aren't quite the same as they were. There are now two "AmazonGlobal Standard Shipping" options on checkout. One adds Import fees deposit and the other doesn't. So you have the choice of paying up front or not. Anything up to £15 before shipping should be safe to chose option without Import fees deposit. Above, it's up to you.

Why give us the price including shipping?

That only comes into play if the value of the items is over the 15 quid limit. How much is the item you are ordering?

You should be fine. Well within the 15 quid limit. Don't forget to select the shipping option where you DO NOT pay the tax deposit as it is under the limit.

Yep. I have to chase them for every single refund. The system is bobbins! I'm just pleased they have an opt out option now.
Weird. I’ve had automatic refunds on the tax twice now, although it did take about 8 weeks like it says in the T&C.

I get regular refund of import fee deposit from amazon USA automatically
It can take 2-6 months to get the refund notice from amazon
I even had a refund once after 8 months

Some are partial refunds reduced import fee collected and some are the full amount no fee collected
