I had a similar experience regarding the purchase of 3 CD-RAM discs last year - postage from Germany £15 plus VAT (no insurance cover either) for £5 worth of discs which my postman delivered via my letter box. The only reason I bought them was simply because they were no longer available via the UK.
I know a guy who sells stuff on
- usually fairly low-price stuff - say £10-30. he reduces the online price by at least £5 - then adds a fiver on the postage costs - he says he can make at least a fiver for just walking to the post office - nice easy money if you can get it.
