Just to tell you : I've just bought some album on Bandcamp and VAT was added to the total but wasn't written/included on the album's price before making payment.

Beware because it didn't happen the previous times I've bought some stuff there!

Just checked by doing some bogus shopping since I was wondering the same thing based on recent purchases, and I noticed it seems to depend on the seller. Some sellers add additional taxes as well as shipping on top of the price of the record after you add it to your cart in order to check out, others just add shipping. There's probably a setting that enables sellers to add VAT. Best to double-check if VAT applies and whether it is mentioned in the item description.

Thanks for your return!

In my case the sum was low but I wanted to warn people here. The seller is located in Russia.

Can't think of a time when the original quoted price with postage ended up being the same as I paid, come to expect it's added tax now but hardly breaks the bank

It’s because you are French:

Thanks for the information! Digital transactions are a heaven for tax-hungry governments...
