Brenton I had to do this for my last item I sent to Belgium. The Eurozone really kills our Euro prop friends in taxes and duty. It’s unnerving to do it this way..... but it works.....Shipping to UK now comes with restrictions, since they changed shipping rules pertaining to custom fees and me having to apply for an import license to get product into the country, which I will not do! The whole Brexit has caused a huge mess with shipping to the UK!
So, in order for anyone in the UK to get anything from me, they have to take a risk of me putting a value of $20 on the package and labeling it as a 'Gift'.
So far, I haven't had any problems and everyone has been receiving their package, but do know there is the risk of only claiming $20 if the package gets lost...
I have other friends who refuse to ship anything to the UK now, which sucks for them, since they had a lot of customers over there....
There is so much red tape and hassle to get an import license, it wasn't worth getting it. It's that bad!
