Thank you very much for you swift reply! So I guess, I will be sent the bill, pay for it, and then the goods will be forwarded.
But where does this extra 28.- CHF come from?
I got charged 28 francs "import fee" by UPS the day before yesterday on goods valued 15 francs. Just saying whatever you think the value is going to be (as in nothing) they'll stuff you with something extra. They'll either ask for cash on delivery when they arrive at your door so have some ready as opposed to having to run around trying to find some & stealing it out of your kids pocket money purse as you have no cash, or they will send you a bill a few weeks later when you thought you'd got away without being taxed. Depends on the delivery service.
