And the rest of the "detail"!

When you purchase an item through the Global Postage Programme, you receive international tracking at no additional charge and pay any applicable import charges upfront. There are no additional charges at delivery. You'll see an estimate of the international postage charges and any import charges in the item listing. The final charges appear at checkout.


Import charges include certain fees, such as export classification, importation risk premium, and variance fees, which are assessed by the global postage provider as part of the services provided by the Global Postage Programme. These fees are in addition to the customs duties and taxes imposed by country tax and customs officials. For additional information about applicable fees, see the eBay Global Postage Programme Buyer Terms & Conditions.


Note: The charges that you are quoted in the item listing are not final until paid and may change - for example, if you change your delivery address during checkout or if the applicable import rules change before you complete your payment.

The most important statement is: "These fees are in addition to the customs duties and taxes imposed by country tax and customs officials.". These are fees levied by the company behind the "Global Postage Programme". Nothing to do with the UK HMRC.

The rest of the detail is even more worrying!

When you pay for the item through PayPal, you are authorising 2 payment transactions. The first payment goes to the seller and consists of the item cost and the domestic postage costs. The second payment goes to the global postage provider and consists of the international postage costs and any import charges.


After you've completed checkout, you can review these charges on the Order details page. The Order details page shows the total charges and the payment amounts to the seller and global postage provider.


Note: The Request total from the seller link is not available for Global Postage Programme purchases. You'll see the total, including postage, after you've purchased the item.

The long & short of it: you will not know the total, for sure, until the auction is finished & you have gone through checkout. At this point the final total will be revealed! Sounds great...
