Happy New Year everyone!

Is there any French customers here who received their order(s) recently? Everything went well, I hope?



Salut cilika,
Oui j'en ai reçu. Comme je ne coche plus la case, je tente ma chance avec la douane. Des fois je ne suis pas contrôlé et je ne paye rien, et des fois je paye entre 4 à 6€ en ligne en cas de contrôle. La valeur déclarée reste inférieur à la valeur du contenu. L'un dans l'autre je reste gagnant. Je ne prend que du gros clone qui tache ;) toujours beaucoup plus intéressant sur FT qu'en France

Bad experience in Spain. Paid taxes to FT, but order stopped at customs. I don’t know why small orders still don’t have customs taxes in Spain, but I paid 6€ as administration fee for handling at customs.

Salut mariocart,
j'ai pensé à ça... Mais vu que mes très peu de commandes depuis juillet ont été tous attrapé par les douanes (meme cela qui avait été prépayé), j'hésite. Mais là, j'hésite aussi, peut-être je vais demander à me faire rembourser des taxes que je viens de prépayer avec une commande il y a quelques heures ;)


Hi acidsnow, that's what I should've paid if I had been at home at the right moment.
What do you mean by small orders? A couple of $? 20$?

Hi!
In the past in Spain: shipments below 20 € didn’t pay any tax, 20-150 € paid VAT, above 150 € paid VAT plus taxes. Besides, transport company collect administration fee for any shipment stopped at customs for storage and administration. For example state post collet about 6 €, and UPS - 18 €
With new European law any order should pay VAT.

Its seems that now any order without prepaid taxes is stopped by customs, but informatics systems is no updated. So for FT order below 20 € I’d paid only administration fee. Another order 20+ € from Switzerland by UPS I’d paid Spain VAT plus administration fee.

By the way, in Spain when shipment is stopped at customs we receive postal letter with instructions to process customs duties online.

Oh my sweet... for Spain even before you needed to pay VAT??

Yeah, I have very little experiences with the new legislations. For France, there had been no bother before, what was free, was free of charges.
I had an order from the UK where I had to pay VAT and the administration fees in Aug. But I could pay some reduced fees online. An other order from one of the comp. Chinese site, prepaid, which went smoothly.
Which bugged me with my last received order from FT, was the lack of any postal letter or e-mail. Not even that I had to pay, but I had to rush after my package, first to figure it out where they are keeping it.

I'd just like to know what to count of for the next time.
Already have 2 orders here (not yet shipped) with prepaid taxes. Probably I'll try to place an order around 20$ without it, for to see!
Time for gambling lol

I never paid nothing before. All Chinese shops declare very low amount, below 20 €.

Hi, acidsnow AND cilika, Happy new year.

If you prepaid the VAT tax for your order, but your local customs asked you to pay the tax again, please feel free to contact our customer service for further help. Thank you.

Received a package today. (shipped on the 7th Jan.)

Without extra payments! :))

Either FT cleared out the issues or was just plain lucky, it's a good result!
Hope the same for everyone.

Thanks again!

Hello Cilika
Est-ce que dans le suivi la poste tu as constaté un onglet "Etape de duane" ? Si oui, que contient-il ?
