The problem I have with the UK is when I send my products over there, the government charges so much VAT and Royal Mail fees it's ridiculous.When I send stuff USPS they don't charge a fee to my client for retrieving the package, like Fed Ex or UPS does, because if on top of paying VAT (taxes) and Royal air mail fees, they charge you to take your package out of the DHL office, you end up paying double for your item. It has happened before, so be prepared when ordering from the UK, Spain has the same problem and now both of these countries have raised taxes on tobacco.
