Uh .. but .. you usually don't pay that presentation cost if the the
total value is below the limit, do you? Sounds like this all depends on
the blood pressure of the agent in charge...
Or what transporter was that? I remember reading complaints about UPS
always charging such a fee, even if it didn't have to present anything
to the customs (for German customers, though).
I'm awaiting something from Hong Kong in a few days . Totaling to
somewhere just below the limit. I'll report back how that turned out.
