I was notified by ebay that it was delivered at 7.02pm last night. Odd because I didn't see a hermes van pull-up and I was in around that time (I didn't leave the house at all). I obviously looked around the gardens and bins, just everywhere basically with no luck. I emailed the seller and sent an email to hermes explaining the situation, both likely to get back to me tomorrow. I dunno if I have a leg to stand on? PayPal/ebay will state that it was delivered and hermes for a fact will not help, hate that company. Any advise would be appreciated
*UPDATE - I have raised a dispute with PayPal, hoping me and the seller can't sort it out.
*UPDATE 2 - The tracking status has changed on their site to "21:41 Sunday 15 Nov - Your parcel is at our local depot and on its way to you". So yea they never delivered it. I should get it today, will keep everyone updated.
*UPDATE 3 - The parcel finally arrived around lunch time. Thanks everyone for your messages.
I have a parcel from Japan stuck in my local depot since New Year’s Eve and they haven’t even given me a link to pay import fees. I’m starting to think I will never get it and it will be destroyed
End of the year is coming and this is Just a friendly reminder of the changing tax/VAT law (2021) for all packets coming from outside the European Union. The changes was originally planned to put in place on 1.1.2021 but due Covid-19 they moved it by 6 months forward. If you can, try to ship at least 1-1.5 months before July 2021 your parcels so you don't need to pay the new VAT fees that come in place.
With effect from 1 July 2021, the concept of distance sales will be widened to cover B2C sale of goods transported from outside the EU made by EU or non-EU operators. Currently, an exemption applies to the importation of goods with a consignment value of up to €22. As a result of the 2021 changes the small-value consignment VAT exemption will be abolished and instead the following rules will apply:
Special arrangement for importation of goods with intrinsic value of not more than €150
Where the I-OSS is not or cannot be availed of, import VAT on distance sales of goods imported from outside the EU may be collected by the customs declarant including postal operators, courier firms and customs agents. The use of postal operators and courier firms is likely to facilitate the import process and the collection of import VAT.
In addition to the I-OSS and the complementary special arrangement, simplification place of supply rules have been introduced in case of distance sale of goods imported from outside the EU into a Member State which is not the Member State where the sale to the end customer is made.
The Import One Stop Shop (I-OSS) scheme
Operators engaged in the distance sale of imported goods with intrinsic consignment value of not more €150 will have the option to register under the Import One-Stop-Shop (I-OSS) Scheme. Operators have the option to appoint a so-called intermediary to register under the I-OSS on their behalf. As long as the I-OSS scheme can be availed of and is opted for, VAT will be charged by the operator (or the intermediary appointed by the operator) at the point of sale to EU customer. No VAT will be charged by Customs at the point of importation. The operator or intermediary will then be required to remit the VAT collected to the Member State of importation together with the I-OSS Return.
The I-OSS is much less beneficial than the Community OSS Scheme as it is only applicable to consignments of a value not more than €150 and requires monthly VAT reporting... keep reading on reddit ➡
Some of you might have seen my post about shipping some simple jewellery boxes (made of cardboard) via superbuy and was told it was 1703 yuan a JOKE. More than I paid.
Well I spoke today to DHL and the actual costs were $98
Superbuy are scamming bastards making nearly $200 on top of my shipping!!!!!
I now assume they are doing this to everyone and making millions.
I'm now moving over to CSSBUY
I recently bought some goods from Debenhams on its online sale, and as it was unwanted gift for some love ones, I proceeded to return it back to them. I dropped it off at a Hermes drop off point last month and upon checking the status of the return it says it is still with the driver :S. Like WTF it still can't be stuck with the driver for more than 1 month.
I am worried that I have royally fucked up and lost around £90 in the process. It may well be out of the returns policy of Debenhams.
I very stupidly paid with a Debit Card too! What should I do?
Hermes are crooks!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION Those of you who dropship using Aliexpress Standard Shipping - All parcels are now labelled with an Aliexpress Sticker....

I ordered a €200 motherboard in December before Christmas and was hoping it would get through AddressPal before the end of the year, but it was only added this morning and bam, €55 customs charge.
