Getting international shippings through customs and has been a lesson in patience. We shipped two parcels to ourselves before leaving the US. Aside from the exorbitant cost on the US side, duties were also owed on the Portuguese side - which is expected.

But the process is very disjointed and communication between the various parties is out of sync.


One funny thing - I had shipped a mousepad that I valued at $0 (I got it in a loot crate - it's technically worth nothing to me), but I was told it must have a value so I valued it at $1. 😂

They also apparently looked into my PC and challenged the cost of the various components. This is the one I still haven't received (because UPS doesn't show I've paid duties even though I have), and I'm worried they unpacked/repacked it and now it's damaged. :(
