Customs Fee

Hey guys I just recieved my dress from Innocent World and the mailman said I had to pay a customs fee of $60!!

Did any of you guys have similar experience with your purchases whether or not their from Innocent World?

Was/Is there a way around it?

Do you know why this happened?

For the customs fees, it depends on what country you live in and what was being shipped. They usually have different rates for weight/what type of item it is you are importing, usually much higher for "luxury" items. And it happened because your government wants more money, essentially.

it's your country's rule, you have to pay. that's how customs and import duties work
some sellers will mark down the value of packages, but it is illegal to do so, so more stores will not

Unfortunately, clothing, also known as textiles, can sometimes get a customs fee in the United States. :/
Every time I open the fridge, the hole in my jello glares at me.

Thank you for completely removing my signature without emailing me that it was too long.
