    Customs duty has nothing to do with the supplier, but is imposed by our government.

    That's not what I asked. I'm sure someone will appreciate your knowledge of the ins and outs of government and HM customs, though.

    So, are we saying that orders from cdwow over £18 are getting through customs or not????? THAT is the whole point of this thread!!!! I'm eyeing up some juicy Criterion Collection boxsets. What is the liklihood of them being charged customs????

    It seems some UK-sourced stuff is coming via the Channel Islands (with Duty/VAT pre-paid apparently)but other stuff (R1, 3, 4 etc) is still coming from HK.

    Seems a bit risky to me esspcially since their prices aren't that great.

    Of course we're talking +£18.

    Excellent :)

    Is that the usual HK label since it's a Region 1 DVD?

    But what you asked makes no sense - Monkeyboy is correct in that you are no less or more likely to get "caught" by customs using cd-wow than you are any other retailer. Customs charges are totally random.
