Re: Swiss customs disobeying their own rules

Probably not the case here, but it got me thinking.

If you buy something for 60 CHF with free shipping, how is the total calculated for customs purposes?

At 60 CHF (you've actually paid for the shipping in one way or another)?

Or 60 CHF + whatever the shipping costs are calculated at?
It is the total including shipping. However in my case the total was comfortably below CHF 60, including separate shipping charges on the enclosed invoice, and the VAT threshold, and thus the point at which they may start charging their money for old rope, is CHF 65 (except on books/food etc.)
