no i get hit as well, with rugby gear as well as cycling. i think maybe i have been flagged as a frequent importer now? clothing is classed as apparel hence the tax on it.Thanks for posting.
I'm wondering what the experience is of other Wiggle shoppers. I am almost always hit with import charges. Today was the steepest - costing me 10% of the value of my purchase. Is this because clothing has a particularly high tariff? Are they becoming stricter because the strong Yen is driving shoppers abroad and this is affecting tax revenue?
