well I am going to wreck the thread with another customs story.
I just got hit with customs on a purchase from LN-CC. I was surprised by that because I asked by email about it specifically and they responded "As we now transact in US dollars and on a DDP basis the price on the website is the final price. You should not receive any extra charge from DHL or customs prior to your delivery." Their website says the same thing.
I emailed LN-CC a few days ago about it and haven't heard back. I am assuming this is an honest mistake on their part and maybe they haven't gotten back to me because of time difference + weekend + they haven't heard back from DHL.
I will let you know if they make this right, or if they don't. I am hoping they can get this sorted out because LN-CC is one of the few webstores that sells anything that I want. I would like to buy from them again.
I wish they would just ship by Royal Mail......
Same here got hit with customs from my LN-CC order too.
Although on the forms they listed items in GBP.
