Changes to Royal Mail terms and conditions
Only a couple of days ago, I became aware of new severe restrictions in the U.K. in the near future.
Royal Mail starts these Regulations in January 2013 for commercial accounts and in July 2013 for regular customers.

Small businesses will suffer and are bound to lose half of their international customers.
This is big. And this sucks.
On the one hand, via the Internet I can view the merchandise offered in the U.K. and on the other hand, I hesitate to order anything after that window closes in July 2013 - being worried that the item may be seized in transit before it ever gets to me. Meanwhile, when paying with a credit card, the purchase price is already deducted, and where is my item ??
Just imagine the flood of angry e-mails. Customers already send off an angry e-mail when their item is only late.
So then, perfume merchandise is transported via Ground inside the U.S.A. - that is already in force.
Next year, perfume merchandise is transported via Ground inside the U.K. - oh, dear, gone all these good deals from U.K. shops for us international shoppers.
What about the perfume pals in Australia and Malaysia and Japan ? They are English speaking and often ordered from the U.K.
