I received a letter last week from the German Post Office about the delivery of my order in Amazon.com. They said that it was hold by the Zollamt or Custom Office in Regensburg and I have to pick it up no later than 14 days.
This is the disadvantage when you order goods outside the European Union countries. In Germany for example, the Custom Office will surely hold the goods. If I am not mistaken, I need to pay for the taxes levied in that items according to German rules and regulations. I guess I need to pay the 19% Merhwertsteuer or value added tax. I will see how it is going when I will pick-up the photo accessories tomorrow.
You can find here the details of my order in amazon.com from the United States seller.
