I,m Upset or do my eyes deceive me


I purchased some gifts for my friends. payed for the postage , then payed extra postage because the package was coming from America , all done through paypal .
The post office this end would not release the package until I payed £12.63 ,which is what I payed for the original postage .
I sent a copy of this photo to the seller showing there was no postage payed .I was sent an email with underlining saying the postage had been payed and a copy of a receipt showing it so .
I felt the matter should be pursued by the seller but I very much doubt it. It means I have payed £25 26p in postage .
When sending gifts abroad which I do quite often I have never, never payed this much postage before .

I think paypal should be able to help you.

Clearly something has gone wrong and it sounds as if the problem lies with the postal service either here or there. Paypal is one route to try altho whether you'll get your money back is another thing.

I am sorry to hear you are having this headache!
Just recently I received a GIFT from the USA ( http://gina-catswhiskers.blogspot.com/2010/11/pif-my-gift.html ) which is a gift of no comercial value, like yours - PRESENTS to Friends and although the postage fee was paid in the USA $14.20 it could only be released here in the UK a further £13.80 payment to the Post Office.
I thought it was a lot of money for only postage.

I believe you do have a chance of refund with PayPal as your package shows no postage paid at the source, when you did pay for it at the time of purchasing the goods.
Good luck and don't let it spoil the moment

How incredibly frustrating for you. Do press Paypal for some compensation - it is clear you have been treated badly.
