Customs Fee's and Duty Charges in Poland

Not for books. That's only for electronics

One thing to look out for on Amazon and Ebay is that in your order sometimes they won't send something to Poland at all. In one order we bought books, individual cds and a cd set. They wouldn't send the cd set for some reason.

I bought some printer inks from ebay, and they were delivered no problem no payment required. mind you they came from UK and it could just have been dumb luck.

I think that once it comes from the EU i.e. amazon.co.uk, you dont have to pay anything extra (so far i have not had to pay anything but that has only been for books).

Parcels coming from EU countries are usually OK because presumably even the poles have to pay lipservice to EU regulations ( that's about ALL the do!) but anything from ouside is routinely opened and you are told you have to pay taxes, duties, health checks or any of a number of trumped up nonesenses, supply polish translations of invoices etc so just refuse to pay and return to sender and ask supplier to refund - it's not worth the hassle!

I bought a few times stuff through amazon.co.uk. All was delivered in good condition. But handling and delivery costs they charge.... I think they make more money on that than on their books :)

We buy stuff from Amazon USA all the time and have no problems at all. We have bought DVDs and books, there are certain things, like electronics, that they won't ship over here. Plus our voltage is different, so it's a moot point have the time anyway.

And the shipping is relatively inexpensive too. Usually around $10-12.

Better to buy from amazon.co.uk which is in the EU. No extra taxes, custom fees etc.
