Shipping from and to UK from Europe has become more difficult and expensive due to Brexit.
In many cases customs are charging a tax fee, which has to be paid before they release the package for further transport. These costs are based on a percentage which is variable, depending on the value and content of the shipment, and country of origin. This makes it impossible to include these taxes in the order price and have to be paid during transport to the courier who will send the bill to the receiver.
If it won’t get paid the package will go return to the sender after three weeks.
So be aware of this before you buy something on the market from a UK based seller, or if you’re a UK based buyer, from a EU based seller.
