I ordered an item for £48 from amazon UK last night. On top of postage it charged me £7.20 estimated import fees. The blurb said the company had 180 days to file paperwork proving they had paid fees. If less than estimated I would be refunded difference back to my credit card. If the company didn't file paperwork within 180 days I would be refunded the full 7.20. Lots to keep track of now with orders..... My biggest concern is if Customs go back to their previous practice of charging for the package to be forwarded on from them when you've already paid delivery to your address, that was/is a disgraceful practice.

The amazon payment with a customs deposit does simplify life. But it does also mean that you will 100% be charged for something.

All delivery companies will charge a "Customs Clearance Fee" which is usually on top of anything already paid, and excluding the actual customs fees.
For some, this can be upwards of €35 just to file the customs paperwork even if there is no customs due.
Not sure if this is what you've experienced Tamara.

I think moving forward I will restrict my amazon purhcases to .ES or .DE since they are still inside of the EU and less likely to be hit with any additional tariffs or delays.

Placed an order on Amazon.es on the 7th of January using Amazon Global delivery option - received the item today 18th of January. Not too bad given the delays due to heavy snow on the mainland. It's interesting following the item journey though! Started in Sevilla, on to Vitoria then Leipzig in Germany, back to Vitoria before Madrid then in the end onto the Canaries!

An update on my original post, parcel posted in Inverness 10th Dec 20, actually arrived Friday 15th Jan 21, very frustrating as post office in Caleta closed Saturday so never got till the Monday.

I'd be tempted to email Jeff with those details - see what he has to say! Jeff@Amazon.com
I agree the time is quite good for here but it seems an unnecessarily large carbon footprint.
