sometimes, when sending mail internationally, an item will be opened and inspected by customs, in this case, you, the buyer will be charged a customs fee, it is your responsibility to pay this fee when receiving your item from your postal service, this occurs rarely but it's worth considering if placing an order outside the UK where the item is likely to pass through customs.
