DHL delivery with tax paying

So, I've got something delivered from EU wirh DHL. And I've got now what I need to pay additionally to DHL because the price was 65.84chf.
So:
1. Tax - 5.10chf
2. Vorlageprovision - 3.00chf
3. Kontroabwicklungsgebühren - 19.00chf

What are points 2 and 3?
Do I really need to pay them?

If I would order again, how can I not pay this in future?

Thanks!

Here's the DHL Customs Services price list in English:
https://www.dhl.ch/exp-en/express/cu..._services.html

Vorlageprovision is the first charge on the list.
Kontoabwicklungsgebühren is the second charge.

Yes, you really have to pay them. Unlike the VAT charge, they are independent of the value of the goods.

2: They paid the tax in advance and now collect them from you, that comes with a small fee.

3: Checking of package, calculating fees etc.. basically handling costs.

And yes you have to pay all of them, next time inform yourself a bit better before importing goods

Nah, taxfree shopping for more expensive goods can really be worth it. (or a big box of nostalgic childhood candy from the grounds where I was born :P
