I have just clicked on an advert on Gransnet and found it is a US site and all the prices are in dollars! Is there any point to this?

Well maybe. I often buy from JustFashionNow and NewChic - both US sites that just happen to have the sort of clothes I like - colourful and a bit boho. The stuff arrives fine.

Yes it was NewChic I looked at. Do they charge duty on them?

I know which one you mean an the clothes look lovely I’m tempted.

No duty. The are a bit slow arriving but otherwise no problems. I would go for slightly bigger size.

Lucky Please would you tell me how the delivery charge is calculated on NewChic? I couldn't find the info on their website!

I bought something from an American site. For some reason, it came through Germany and I had to pay duty.

Yes I ve bought from newchic takes about three weeks but good quality clothes I didn’t pay any postage it was free

Be careful. Some of these sites are based in China. I clicked on one called 'Damensein', which sounded German, but before I was tempted to buy I googled the name. There were several threads, including one on Mumsnet, saying that the clothes were very poor quality and fit and that the company was based in China.

Thanks for the info BlueBelle. It's all a bit of a minefield, isn't it?!
