Got an e-mail from Amazon yesterday about the potential for VAT/import duties being applicable from January 1st.

Is a no deal going to the making or breaking of Parcel Motel? Their delivery location is in Antrim.
Pretty much. Unless they pivot to being a “custom fees collection” fee collection outfit like fuckin dhl.

Haven’t had a ups parcel in years. Do they also charge an admin fee for collecting the customs fee like dhl?

I haven't had anything from UPS in years either but I think they're delivering the dumbbells I finally found online for someone's xmas gift.

We do use Fed Ex quite a lot in work for bringing stuff from the states and after years of being a shitshow they seem quite efficient now.

Do we have to buy shit from amazon.fr now? To avoid vat like
fuck Amazon.
but as regards postage :
UK postage is really expensive it's cheaper to buy things from places like Germany
or many countries in Europe
it's about 10 Euro for a 2 kilo package from Germany and couriers are even cheaper.

I ordered a record stylus I needed in a hurry from a shop in Dublin and they
charged 15 Euro for courier delivery.

I was sending out Xmas cards today something I rarely do normally.
I found some old stamps some from various years.
at one point a domestic letter stamp cost 41 cents - 41 ! why forty ONE ?
I also found some 2009 stamps they were 55 cents - it's 1.10 now.
not many other things would have doubled in price in that time.
