Last time I bought something from the states I had to pay customs charge (the value of the VAT) to fed ex as they were the courier company.

Does anyone know how it works? I want to buy a handbag from an American website to the value of £104. Would I have to pay customs/ exise duty when it arrives? Who to? And how much? Does anyone know? Am very grateful for any words of wisdom.
Thank you
