Ask a Question
So I ordered an item from AliExpress (china) totalling £15.74, postman put a card through to say that there was customs charge to pay and my parcel is at local Royal Mail depot.
I wasn't sure at first what my item was so I asked when I went to collect and they said customs charges are usually charged when items come from USA or Australia. Anyway - paid the charge and left with my parcel.
When I've looked at the address where the parcel has come from it says Southall, UK. Ive googled postcode and its industrial units in Southall.
Surely I shouldn't have to pay customs charge if its come from UK. The man at the Royal Mail depot said they could be a 3rd party seller, but i still dont understand why I had to pay the customs charge.
Can anyone give me a little bit of info if they know about charges etc.
