Has the way Paypal operates with payments for models sent to the US changed?
I have noticed that in the two most recent transactions to the US, not only have Paypal shown the price of the model, and postage as normal, but there was also the addition of VAT, payable by the buyer. Is this a new procedure, i.e. are Paypal now required to collect the VAT on imported models on behalf of US Customs and Excise? This does happen in the UK, but I pay the courier before its delivered to me. Has this happened to anyone who has bought a model from the UK, or indeed, anywhere else? I'm just curious.
