I HAVE ORDERED MY FIRST ITEMS FROM USA TO GB ON EBAY.  I HAVE PURCHASED FROM USA SIERRA TRADING FOR 18 MONTHS. AS TIME PROGRESSED SOME PROBLEMS HAVE ARISEN RE SHIPPING COSTS OF UPS. LAST MONTH I ORDERED GOODS WORTH $110.THE SELLER ADDED $40 FOR SHIPPING. WHEN UPS DELIVERED THE PARCEL - A SKIRT 3 TOPS AND 1 PR SOCKS LESS THAN 1 KILO THEY CHARGED GBP EQUIV OF $45 WHICH I PAID BY CHEQUE £24.07.

YESTERDAY, 1 OCTOBER I RECEIVED AN INVOICE DATE 20 SEPT.TELLING ME I HAD TO PAY A FURTHER £13.43 FOR ''NON TAXABLE SHIPPING'' AND SAYING I HAD 7 DAYS TO PAY OR THEY WOULD ADD INTEREST. IT CAME 14 DAYS AFTER I TOOK DELIVERY, AND AFTER THE 7 DAYS WERE UP. BEFORE THIS I ORDERED ITEMS ON EBAY FROM USA SELLERS AND AM AWAITING DELIVERY.I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS LAWFUL FOR UPS TO CHARGE EXTRA SHIPPING ON AN ITEM ALREADY DELIVERED. I NOW SUSPECT THAT WHEN MY EBAY PURCHASES ARRIVE THEY WILL CHARGE ME THE INVOICE ON GOODS FROM SIERRA TRADING AND WILL NOT HAND OVER THE EBAY GOODS THEY DELIVER UNTIL I PAY MORE SHIPPING ON THE EBAY PURCHASES. ONE ITEM IS $1.99 AND SHIPPING $11.OO AND THAT PRESUMABLY WILL DOUBLE TOO. I THINK THIS IS DREADFUL.WE ARE OAP'S BUT IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN TO ANYONE. I NOW WILL NOT ORDER FROM THE USA UNLESS LITTLE ITEMS ARE SENT BY MAIL, UNTIL UPS LOSES IT'S MONOPOLY ON SHIPPING.

IF US SELLERS ON EBAY WANT TO CONTINUE TO DO BUSINESS THEN THEY WILL HAVE TO USE ANY INFLUENCE THEY HAVE ON UPS TO PLAY FAIR.
