So just been charged Via PayPal. $214 came to £171. So not as good as google said but that was to be expected. Cant wait for them to come 😀 Let's hope all my calculations for Taz and duty are correct for the U.K. Will be a happy (post) Christmas!
Your mistake was using PayPal - but they're no worse than banks who also rip off customers with extortionate exchange rates I guess. If you make purchases like this regularly I'd suggest looking into getting a credit card with fee-free foreign spending, as they use the much more accurate daily exchange rates provided directly by MasterCard and Visa. PayPal and the banks charge whatever they think they can get away with. From my own experience I can certainly recommend this one: https://www.halifax.co.uk/creditcards/clarity-card/Default.asp
