If Luxire declares the item correctly, you would only have to pay the value of the alteration itself (because they mark it as a return item from alteration and declare the value of the alteration). In the best case, this value should be below the threshold for customs. So there should also be no processing fee by DHL.What I really fear is how this might affect items beeing shipped back for alterations. For e.g. a jacket going back a couple of times you might end up paying 25% multiple times?
For me, this processing fee by DHL is the biggest annoyance. They charge around USD 20 for a process that's mostly automated and presumably doesn't really generate much expenditure on their part.
