    This comes up every now and then. I have previously paid charges for US online shopping but here are some offical insights.

    Customs Docket

    My VAT charge was €6.85, the An Post handling fee was €10.00.

    The fee is calculated at 1% of value or minimum €10.00 for processing customs charges.
