I've been hit with charges every time I've bought photos off OPX, so cannot see it being any different here. Only way around it was to find a friend in US and see if they can place the order for you, get it posted to them and then send it on as a gift with a cheaper total charge on it.I hadn't considered customs charges either...
I thought 'printed matter' was exempt from such charges, but I know I've been hit with charges on similar items coming from outside the EU.
That's exactly why I'm looking for a friendly US scummer Shipping to Switzerland is crazy (11 photos => $66 o-o).Only way around it was to find a friend in US and see if they can place the order for you, get it posted to them and then send it on as a gift with a cheaper total charge on it.
That's what I mean Matt, if they didn't charge that crap handling fee, most purchases under £100 wouldn't be as bad to import!It's the BS Royal Mail handling charge that winds me up the most. Had something a little while ago with a £2 customs charge and an £8+ Royal Mail "handling" fee.
I was going through the Star Wars acquisitions thread and found this post from last year that indicates the packaging is better now.Is anyone who ordered & received theirs able to shed some light on the packaging?
I received mine today and it was in a big box wrapped in bubble wrap. The autographs were in a hard plastic (like Official Pix), wrapped in brown paper, taped to a piece of cardboard. The box had several layers of tape and several Fragile stickers on it.Is anyone who ordered & received theirs able to shed some light on the packaging?
Yes, but when I inquired about the lack of publicity shots from TLJ...and the over abundance of screen frame captures...they said it was Lucasfilm’s fault.Their selection of dual signed pics of Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver is lacking. There's so many good shots of the two from The Last Jedi that I would buy in a heartbeat.
Which places are you buying from that take a loss on shipping? I've never seen that.They could eat that cost just like every other place I order anything from.
