Hi Everyone, 

 

I just ordered the regimen ( the big kit ) from amazon.com and I paid about £ 25 for the shipping fees.

My shipping address is in the UK but I got a bit worried because from this website (acne.org) the shipping fees are about $ 68 for the UK so I wonder how could it be so cheap on amazon?

I hope to receive my order very soon and to not have any extra fees /tax...

Did you ever used Amazon.com to buy the acne.org products in the UK? If so, did it work or did you had any trouble receiving your order?

 

 

Thank you very much for your help...!

 

Alice

I have ordered direct from acne.org & through Amazon.com in the past and the total cost has always been the same (although I have only ordered individual items, not a kit).

 

Just checked the charges myself & it's strange that when ordering direct from acne.org the postage is double that of Amazon, & yet the products on Amazon are still dispatched by acne.org! I noticed that none of the delivery times for the various delivery options on acne.org match up to Amazon's 10 to 20 business days.

 

Be prepared to pay import VAT (20%) plus handling fees. Sometimes you are lucky & they get through without charge, but in my experience I have been charged every time.

 

btw...your English is perfect.

I got charged £13 extra in VAT, customs and handling on one 16oz bottle of AHA. I can only imagine what an entire kit must cost.

Last month I placed 2 seperate orders directly from acne.org. I waited until the first order had been dispatched before placing the second order to make sure they were sent separately.

 

The first order was for 8oz BP (treatment). It was $16.52 (£10.64) +$11.58 (£7.46) shipping, total $28.10 (£18.10).

 

My second order was for 6oz AHA. It was $16.11 (£10.42) + $10.01 (£6.48) shipping, total $26.12 (£16.90).

 

They were delivered without having to pay any extra charges.

 

I got charged £13 extra in VAT, customs and handling on one 16oz bottle of AHA. I can only imagine what an entire kit must cost.

 

What was the breakdown of the charges? It should have been printed on a label on the parcel.

£8 handling charges, can't remember the rest, I don't keep boxes.

I too bought acne.org from amazon.  Although its being ordered from amazon, they directly ship it from acne.org just as if you ordered it from acne.org.  It is not in a separate warehouse or anything like I thought it would be.  I live in the U.S. but Amazon said that I would have $4.95 in shipping costs but then when i checked out it was the same as if ordering it from acne.org at 9 or 10 dollars.  It will probably be what ever the acne.org website says the shipping cost to the UK will be.  Shipping costs are the worst!

AND... $68  to ship to the UK... WOW pricey!

Ahh right. I misread your post. I thought you ordered a tube (8oz). Yes a 16oz bottle @$32 (£21) will attract import VAT.

 

I wasn't sure if the handling fee had increased recently with the other postal increases, but it is still currently £8.

I realized this after I ordered it. Safe to say it's an 8oz tube for me next time tongue.png Heh heh.
