Reported delays at French customs

We’ve received reports of significant delays at French customs that are hampering the delivery of items from the UK to France.

One seller informs us that they have been informed by La Poste that there could be as much as a 4 week backlog of incoming parcels at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. We’ve been unable to verify this, so would be interested to hear if you’re suffering a similar problem and seeing delays.

Our correspondent says that they have 7 parcels in the backlog and Paypal has already started refunding buyers complaining that they haven’t received the goods.

Are you experiencing anything similar with despatches to France? We’d love to hear from you.
