Remember receiving an email from Parcel2go or Interparcel a couple of weeks ago to say that UPS service through them had been suspended and hoped to resume soon. Most likely due to brexit and the backlog.

Co-sign on FedEx. They’ve been great throughout. Recently and post brexit DPD have been great when shipping to EU. Electronic customs form ftw!

I sold 3 items and paid for UPS to come collect today which they did. However, checking tracking 2 of the items have scanned, but 1 has not and states:

Shipper created a label, UPS has not received the package yet. Screwed?, didn't receive a receipt either but used UPS loads of times with no issue until now.

The delivery guy will just not have scanned the label. Once it reaches the depot eveything gets scanned again anyway.

You sure?, that be a huge relief if true. It doesn't make sense he collected the parcels and scanned only 2 though?. Only stressing out because of the value.

I had UPS collect three parcels on the 8th and the guy turned up and said he forgot his scanner at the depot. I took his details just in case. A few hours later they were in the system.

I don't live in Dundee, that pickup scan Dundee is the parcels being scanned at the depot before processing.

Morning all,

There are some cycling jerseys on eBay that I'm interested in but the seller is located in Poland. Does anyone know if I can expect to be stung with handling fees/import charges on top of postage?

Thanks in advance!

Possibly if they don't mark down. You will pay upfront any duties if they are delivered via Global Shipping.

Not sure if there is any read across at all but my wife bought a kids climbing frame thing from Poland via Etsy and we didn’t get charged anything (we reasoned it was cheap enough that even if we did get charged top whack it would still be a decent deal though).

"sell for price from ebay + shipping but your country UK with ebay + VAT from your country. I must put bill on package and put (CN22 with price from auction ) for postage. Regards"

Can anyone decipher this message I got from seller in Poland when I asked if I can expect any additional fees on top of the postage?

this isn't that hard to understand… Poland is in the EU. You will now have to pay fees when importing stuff. you are gonna get VAT charged (+ potentially duty ontop depending on overall price)
