Customs and Documentation
Customs is a government agency responsible for regulating items entering a country. All items being sent to and from a country must clear customs first.
As an eBay seller, you'll need to provide the correct documentation so that your item won't be held indefinitely by customs. Your carrier can easily arrange for customs clearance before you post your items.
Full details of British and European customs issues can be found on HM Customs and Excise website .
