Can anyone tell me just what the fudge a Fedex Air Waybill is?
Here's the deal; a friend of mine won an auction, and was wincing a little at the price, but it wasn't too bad...until he got the FedEx notice that dropped almost an additional 80 dollars on top of everything else. The auction does say that international shipments may have customs, duties, tarrifs, etc and they're not responsible for those, but the waybill seems like something else entirely. But finding out what a waybill is, is a pain in the ass.
We're trying to sort out just who to be annoyed at, if it's just something he has to suck up, or if the seller should have informed him of these charges beforehand, or if they're just the cost of international tarrifs.
