    No seller isn't responsible.
    All customs/charges must be paid by the recipicent, this goes for all imported goods.

    oh and this is common practice with these hong kong sellers. they price the items at such a great price.....even with shipping....just to sell it. knowing ur gonna have to pick up the tab of the extra fees.

    i never buy overseas.......

    I am with the seller on this one, he isnt responsible for your country's high taxes and custom fees.

    you're responsible, either pay or return to sender.

    the seller is in the right, you're in the wrong.

    good day to you 'my friend'

    Thanks for the helpful replies (and sarcastic ones)
    I only asked your opinion,
    it seems the customs are adding taxes as an automated response,
    so they are trying to captive anyone and anyone,

    Its a non-commercial product so they cant add import tax on things marked as gifts.
    Therefore i should be in the right and revenue and customs should have to lift their alleged fees. VAT is normally added with a country, its the import duty they can deal with overseas,

    They can add import tax to whatever they like. (limits normally like 20 pounds-ish i think)
    Import duty/VAT/Whatever is always added when something is coming into a country, never in the country it came from.
