There will be a clearance fee factored into the VAT calculation there, which is always a flat rate for small shipments and a % for very large ones. So the cheaper deals will have proportionally high fees, most likely. All of the major couriers charge fees for clearance on top of the 20% of actual VAT.

Ebay Global shipping (I believe is shipped twice), in this case shipped once with in a US to a US Hub, then processed with adding the Importing documentation the shipped again to the customer in the UK.

An example of an order I've did a few months back:
Price
US $38.70​
Postage
US $16.07​
Import charges
US $15.36​
Total charged to
US $70.13​

I'm pretty sure it is also VAT on both price and postage cost
And as Rui says it looks like there is a clearance/handling fee

But can still work out cheaper than getting VAT bills and handling fees on this side.

In my case to make it worth while I bought 3 items from the same seller, but it's gonna vary between sellers and how much they charge on postage for extra items, ect.

EDIT: you may even be able to work out the clearance/handling fee by temporarily increasing the amount of items (before purchase) and some math fun

Thanks both for the explanations, makes sense. I've also noticed that some of it depends on the seller.

Code can only be used with selected sellers (there's a list on the site).

I got Switch version of SMT3 for £28 from Boss Deals/Simply Games. Depending on how many copies Atlus printed, it may not go lower than that.

If you're looking for Fruits Basket Season 2 Part 1 on Blu Ray, there are some used sets being sold by Music Magpie on Amazon UK at £11.98 (described as in very good condition, so may or may not come with the slipcover).

Seeing a few others as well at £11.98 from Music Magpie:



Worth checking your Amazon Wish Lists for second hand prices.

On the 21st (tomorrow) I think there is supposed to be a Amazon Prime top up £50 or more and get £7 credits (but don't do it now, has to be done 21st and maybe 22nd)
The details I don't think have been fully confirmed (so not up on the offer/deals sliding image thing)

Currently there is a Amazon Prime small business help out of spend £10+ (on a amazon small business) and get £10 to spend on the 21st/22nd but the voucher I think has to be used on item/s over £20. Here is a link if interested:


Also for today only if any of you have TopcashBack there is a spend £10 get £2

My Amazon Prime expires today, I'll see if they can tempt me back tomorrow.

I was going to leave it expired for a while but I suspect that I will be suckered in by something in the sales, as usual 🤣

There's always the option of having a secondary account to get some of that Prime 30 Day Free Trial goodness 😉

Heh I do have a 2nd account but I cba to use it most of the time! :)

I was on student prime for the last few years which was amazing at £40 a year, but I didn't want to renew at £80 as I really only use the delivery and nothing else.

Logged on just now and it seems they are doing a 30 day free prime trial on my account even though it just ended, that would at least get me through the prime day sales.

Edit - nevermind it says 30 day trial but it's actually not and just wants me to pay as normal.

Does that actually work? haha. I dunno, if there are some good offers on I'll do a week for £1 or w/e it was offering me, I'm kind of hoping I see a Prime for a year for £60 again I'd probably accept that :)
