Well Emma I think if ordering from anywhere now these changes have taken place, I'll make sure I save my pennies & place bigger orders!!!

Just make sure you don't order over 15 worth of stuff if you're ordering from outside the EU( ie the USA), unless you fancy an 8 admin fee from Royal Mail on top of the tax that Customs and Excise will hit you with.  I will not be making that mistake again!  ::)

Yup - a good point. If you order from outside the EU, you not only have to pay the vat on what you import, but also often an import duty and an admin charge.

I got hit with both those charges Mel couple of week ago when I placed a big order for Czech beads from America. But the beads still work out cheaper (even with the extra postage/import added on) than the Etsy shop I was using!  ???
