Is it normal to have to pay shipping when you win a challenge?

Hello All, Is it normal to have to pay shipping when you win a challenge. I've never had to before...??? Thanks for your input :O)

I've never had to pay the shipping. Is it from overseas? That may be one reason they are asking - but it definitely should have been posted along with the candy!!

It depends hun some you do have to pay but it should say on the post whether the prize includes postage or not.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

No - I've never had to pay for shipping when winning anything. Sometimes I have had to pay Tax though.

Hey, some candy does state postage to be paid if living in certain areas. I won some markers once and the way they mailed them, it cost me 25.00 in duty fees..i was NOT impressed. It would have been cheaper for me to purchase them....you just never know....

Hi Leah Ann I've always had to pay shipping for prizes so this is no surprise to me but I am in Australia and most of the sponsors have been international. It usually says on the challenge though that the sponsor requires you to pay shipping so you should be made aware before entering.

Hi Leah Ann it normally says in the post if the prize includes p&p, I have noticed that if you win a voucher the p&p is not normally included. I think you are lucky to receive your prize I have won 3 challenges, sent an e-mail to the addy but have never received anything, a bit demoralizing for me.
