Postage Charges for International Challenge and other Contest Winners

Hi Everyone,

Just to clear up any confusion- We do NOT charge anything to our international customers for any contest or challenge prize package that we send out. We pay the shipping costs for that.

Customs requires that we put a value on the package so we value it at $5.00 US Dollars and mark it as a gift. If customs is charging anyone customs charges or VAT, it is out of our control.

I hope this clears up any confusion.

Hugs,

Gina K.

That makes perfect sense perhaps that they are collecting from the other end. And I never thought you would charge for the postage. But I know when something is marked as a "gift" usually there is no charge at the other end either. At least with sending to my kids in Japan it has never happened. As always, you are so generous and I for one, thank you for that generosity.

♥ so true!

Not sure why people would think that, Gina, but thanks for clearing it up.

I am in Australia, and have never yet been charged this end for customs (or anything) on either prizes or purchases - not from Gina K or from anywhere else.

I haven't been charged by customs for any prizes but have been caught a couple of times for purchases from GKD. The last time it worked out as about $34 !

Many thanks for your reply Gina.  When I heard the rumour it did not make sense to me, that is why I asked you for clarification.  The only thing I have had from Gina K is just the best fun.  So don't go anywhere......

Thanks.

Glad I could help! :)

That's great Gina and makes perfect sense to me - I live on the other side of the world to you but I love to enter your challenges and I would do so even if I have to pay for the prize I won to be posted.  Hugs A

Thank you from Australia.  I have been purchasing some products from overseas and postage is more than the item costs most of the time.
