Minutes of two hundred and ninety fourth meeting of The Consumer Council for Northern Ireland
Minutes of two hundred and ninety third meeting of The Consumer Council for Northern Ireland
The level and fairness of parcel surcharging remains a longstanding and frustrating issue for consumers in Northern Ireland, the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and other remote areas in the United Kingdom (UK). Four in 10 UK online retailers apply an additional delivery surcharge for consumers living in Northern Ireland. This can cost on average an additional £6.72. With the predicted growth in online shopping this additional cost can potentially exclude or cause significant cost to consumers.
