    Just had orders on Amazon Italy, Germany and France cancelled with no explanation - I’m in the UK - must be Brexit related but would have been nice to have had an explanation :(

    I'm here just outside of Frankfurt. Today we took a small parcel addressed to be sent from Germany to England and the local post office would not accept it...I believe it is because of Covid (closed borders) but no explanation was given.

    It's actually payback because Hurst was offside in 1966.

    My last 2 UK orders appear to have come through just fine, though. One was sent over the weekend and I took delivery yesterday, and another one I placed on Monday has just been dispatched.

    It's probably due to Covid. I have a guy whom I buy from regularly and he has got a few records for me on hold because they simply won't ship. He was able to post them, but they're being held due to the closed borders.

    I guess that is why it's called Good deals on "other" Amazon sites ;)
    Good deals on Amazon US suffer from shipping + custom tax when purchased in Europe too

    I bet that if you place an order today, there will be no problems but you'll find and import fee deposit "surprise".

    Imho, they cancelled a significant number of orders over the last days because they were trying to figure out what to do to from now on.

    UK customers will probably find an import fee deposit message if they purchase goods from Amazon.fr, .de, .it or .es.

    For orders >€22
    They drop the UK Vat charge, and VAT will be reapplied in Portugal (plus possible handling charge on Portuguese side)

    For orders <€22 the UK VAT is dropped, but not reapplied in the EU delivery country

    Just ordered Led Zep II deluxe vinyl to Ireland (to test)
    £17.99 list price
    £14.99 paid (ex UK VAT)
    < €22 eu VAT threshold so no duty/ VAT to be paid on delivery

    Are you sure about that? Because the €22 limit is gone as of Jan 1st. All orders outside the EU are taxed now regardless of price.

    My understanding is that the €22 limit includes goods+shipping.

    I don't know about shipping rates from Amazon UK to Ireland, but if the grand total, shipping included, exceeds €22, you could be hit by customs when the courier brings you the item

    I am Amazon Prime with UK so free to ship to Ireland currently.
    Will keep Prime until 1st of Jul so I can pick up some low value single item bargains.
    Can’t see much point in retaining Prime thereafter.
    Picked up 2xlp Bonnie Prince Billy ‘Best Troubador’ for £10exVat delivered last night

    Ah, got it. Unfortunately, I don't think Amazon UK offers prime with free shipping to other EU countries.
