Its expensive. It takes over a week before we get this on the tracking info:
“Your item could not be delivered on March 1, 2018 UNITED KINGDOM due to payment of charges. It is being held while the addressee is notified.” So now I will have an extra VAT charge, which is OK, but there will be yet another £10 added by the post office. All because a Guildford based company can’t be bothered to bulk ship it’s UK designed products to its UK customers, or to pre-pay tax like Mouser and Digikey do.
Which in my case, means I will not only end up paying about 40% more than US people do but I also will not see it for another week, so UK enthusiasts supporting a UK company have to pay an extra 20% above the tax for a delivery that takes a week longer. Its’ not right, it’s bad marketing and it damages the brand.
