    Hi first post
    So ive ordered from china before and had to pay duty but this time i got some rep stuff and dhl sent an automated message about 20 mins ago, pay £18.00 on duty. So i did. Now i have to show the number to proove i paid duty to the delivery guy (im assuming just before he slaps cuffs on me haha).

    Anyone else had this? I have not found this in the threads only things have been to come down to offices to pay and people dont seem to. Did I make a mistake? £18.00 isnt much duty either the package must be quite heavy and large and its worth about £500.

    I dont actually give to much of a toss atm but i may do later. Ill tell him i dont have it to hand see if i can get if not i will just take it as i paid already they know who i am.

    What would you have done in this situation?

    Do you think the opened the package and are going all clueso on me?

    Any responses appreciated.

    I had £32 duty slapped on me last week, really pisses me off because im selling my stuff on the internet and i have to put the prices up or cut my profit, wouldn't be to bad but my Chinese guy put that their was £200 worth of ebooks in the 2 boxs and they whacked me for £16 a box tossers.
    And they hold them back until you pay.

    Yeah not sure what my guy put on box yet, but hey ho. The mrs thinks they would just look at box not inside. Yeah i have to agree thats some of my profit in the hands of dhl the sods. But onwards and upwards.

    Have you had this happen often?

    Gotta say I love this forum!! Its a diddlers dream with all the info here. Thanks to many i have learned alot in the last few weeks and am feeling positive (today) about making a living.
