I buy a lot of games from sellers in other countries, including AP members, and I have never had to pay anything beyond the price of the game and shipping.
Today I received a package from the US and I had to pay an extra 26 euro's!!
Does anyone know or understand why some (all but one so far) shippings don't come with extra costs and apparently others have very high hidden costs (tax and custom duties I assume).
Is there something the seller could have done to avoid this?
At the postoffice they said that all shippings from the US have these costs, but that's clearly not true.
If I send something abroad, does the receiving party also run the risk of having to pay that much extra?
I've become very hesistant now to buy something from international sellers.
Any ideas on this?
