A duty is a kind of tax, often associated with customs, a payment due to the revenue of a state, levied by force of law. It is a tax on certain items purchased abroad.
Post here your problems, experiences etc with duties.
So I bought a tee and a stash pouch from somebody. The post came today and the bitch told me to drop an other $52 because of the duties. The package came from the US, and I live in Europe. I did this more often but never had to pay extra. Am I just unlucky that they noticed this time, or is the chance that this will happen more often pretty big?
And is it normal that they asked for $52? I mean a tee and a stash pouch? that's almost retail.
Shit is fucked up.
