    Hi Dave,

    I was sorry to hear about your experiences with buying products from Estonia.

    In my experience the additional charge is sort of “standard” (aka “scam” in my book). When my daughter was away at university a few years ago she’d buy things on the internet, to be delivered to my house (for various reasons). Occasionally she’d end up buying from American sellers (maybe via Etsy) and they would incur VAT, “Customs charges” and “handling charges”. This applied in all cases whether delivered by Royal Mail or other couriers (DHL, Evri, DPD, UPS, Yodel, etc). The choices seemed to be to pay up or get the package shipped back to the sender – and request a refund.

    I’d just pay these since the alternatives didn’t seem worth fighting for, but I discouraged her from buying things this way! I wish you luck in your battle though!
