German customs remains the sole customs authority world-wide that has given me any trouble. They’ve rejected more than one package for incorrect and/or ridiculous reasons and now - so far as I can determine - they’ve just absconded with my latest shipment. I’ve had less trouble shipping products to Nigeria, believe it or not.
I’ve had no other trouble with shipping anywhere else in the EU, and you’d think that EU entry anywhere would be consistent, but no.
So I have decided to simply never sell or ship to Germany ever again.
This is not a slight against the German people. If someone in Germany wants to buy something and have it shipped to some other EU address for forwarding, that’s fine with me. As long as it goes through customs somewhere else.
