My next parcel was also delivered by Polish Post, with no additional fees. But once again, it has been transferred via Liege, and has the Polish Post sticker over the Chinese one, and no customs declaration at all. It had a declared value (for insurance) of 45€.

Just a little post to say that I received my last order. With a declared value of 10£ on the sticker for customs declaration, the French post delivered the parcel without fuss, no extra to pay.
Another datapoint:

Shipping to Amsterdam, NL: I received my order without any customs hold-up or charges. Probably the low weight of the order and the 10GBP stated on the box is fine. PostNL willfully ignored the signature requirement, but there's a good chance that's just PostNL...

I recently had another item from a friend; notionally 30GBP, weighed about 2kg. For that, I had to throw DPD 13 quid to release it.

Sounds like EU are still using the low value goods rules... But I honestly thought they were no longer doing this anymore..

Deferred until July I think because of Covid (IIRC).

I posted a bunch of stuff to Ireland recently. I marked it as "for repair".. no charges.

Got a Jaguar SCART cable from Retrogamingcables UK. Took ages in customs, but was released without charge (unless that comes in a separate letter later, but they usually handle it digitally through the postal app).
