That's completely insane...!!!
but be careful, when I had my very first VAT to pay (and it was a UK order) I made a little googling and found (forums etc.) that even if you refuse to receive your package, and in spite of, they really really want you to pay those taxes still.

But that was in France.



PS.; and that time customs were still acting "fine". I had that damn mail the day (or two) before receiving the package that allowed me to pay on line, "only" 9€. (reduced fees)
Which they stopped doing on the later...

Then can try.....but, they will not succeed....I have no credit card, no bank account, I work strictly with cash, and I am not even Spanish...I have a French passport. Unless they arrest me and jail me. But, the food ain't bad in spanish jails.

¡No pasarán !

Seems there are no charges if I refuse to pay and they have to send back to Fasttech. This is the package from hell really....I paid for it on the 11th of december 2021 and today is the 3rd of march 2022...3 bloody months !!

Yeah Mark, sometimes, instead of asking us for to pay charges, rather they should pay us for the delay... :p


It's good to hear!

Dear MarcF,

We sincerely apologize for the trouble caused. Such a high tariff is indeed beyond our imagination. We are checking all our packages to Spain now and will post an announcement on our forum to remind our Spanish customers to pay attention to the customs issues. If there are any suggestions to avoid this, please feel free to let us know. May postNL or Europe expedited service to Spain be better than China Post?

The tracking information shows a bill sent to recipient, so once you refuse the package, it will be returned. We will issue a refund to you asap. Thank you for your patience.

Don't worry about it Anniepan...I think this is simply bad luck...that parcel was cursed. It took so long to get here, and then it fell into the hands of a zealous custom agent who went a little crazy.
Let's wait and see how long they take to send back this package. I'm not in any hurry.

By the way, since I might need batteries we will test to see if the next parcel falls into evil hands again. I just wont send it by E spain....

Thank you and let's hope things get better. Mind you with the war going on in Ukraine, this might also affect international freight.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. The tracking information should be shown for return next week. We will keep you updated on the ticket. We also emailed you the shipping methods for batteries to Spain. Please feel free to let us know if you have any concerns.
