Just to let you know that I used your proforma and sent the email as you suggested this morning at 8am for an ebay purchase from the States. By 2.30pm they had waived the fee of £12.
I am very grateful, many thanks.
How are they allowed to get away with that? Outrageous!

Sorry, I should have explained it was a Fedex charge.

Glad I didn’t just go ahead and pay this ‘ Direct Payment Processing Fee’. I initially thought the text message I received, might be a scam, as it had a link to payment and I’m always a bit wary of these things, specially when you’re giving out card details.
Whilst researching for possible scams and whether this charge needed to be paid, I happened upon Adams blog. Glad I did, as they’ve now cancelled the charge.
Simply follow his instructions, using the email template and bingo!
Get it up ye fedex!
All the best,

I used your letter to Fed Ex, to get them to waive the ‘advancement fee’. I sent it off yesterday and awoke this morning to a terse message telling me it had been scrapped and I would not be getting an amended invoice but just to knock off the 12 quid. Thanks

Hi Adam, used your letter and Fedex have waived the £12. No new invoice but request to pay the VAT.

Thank you Adam and everyone else. I sent an email to [email protected] and said what you suggested. His asst phoned me up and waived the £12 advancement charge. So it does work if you work it!

Received an invoice from FedEx with the VAT amount and what seems to be an obligatory ‘Advancement Fee’.
Used your template for an email which I sent to [email protected] (with a couple of alterations with the style I tend to write emails in) and it worked perfectly, £12 credited back to me.
Many, Many, Many Thanks!

Thanks Adam, used your template on Friday 20 July, and got a response the very next day, saying they are raised a credit for the £12 and I now have only the VAT to pay.
I think FedEx are an absolute disgrace adding this ‘service charge’.
I imagine there are hundreds of people who simply pay it.
Many Thanks once again.

I just wanted to thank you for saving me £12 I used your template to email FedEx and they have waved the £12 fee.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Nice one Adam worked exactly how you said it would. Took the £12 off .You are a star

Many thanks – I sent an email worded as you suggested, and they also dropped the extra £12. Such a rip-off to add a random fee on to the VAT amount – I bet a lot of people just pay it, but always worth a challenge.
