    $13.99 shipping for a $10 single? 
    maybe one day 10c will do something about their outrageous shipping costs, but today is not that day. 
    I often wonder if any has used the UPS Worldwide Expedited option, 4 days shipping at only $173.98

    I would have liked this single but high shipping costs pushes it beyond the threshold of getting charged custom fees in the UK. Its like a double hit, taking the cost of a $10 vinyl to over $35 if my sums are correct.

    Even for US this is a bit much. $17 total basically for one cool song. I know it’s for a good cause and I like Matter of Time but Say Hi is just a cute little b side I might listen to once.  Can’t justify spending on this.

    It is only the value of the goods purchased and not the total cost including the shipping that is used to calculate customs.

    I don’t know about other countries but German customs include shipping in their calculation. Which I think is an outrageous money grab

    The UK definitely doesn't including shipping costs when calculating duty. So this should not be eligible for any additional costs.

    In France, they also include shipping cost to define duties...And you pay a 18€ flat fee on top of 20% VAT...

    Thanks for this, I assumed they did. I’m tempted to buy now.

    I bought this and I live in the UK. Hopefully no import duty. I have heard of the shipping cost included when calculating import duty but dont think Ive experienced it.

    Im surprised there is more interest in a purple reissue of Ten than there is for this. Just wished they let us know if this going to be available elsewhere.

    I've never had this happen to me and i buy a lot of stuff from the US. As long as the value of the goods is declared as less than £18 it's never a problem.
