Currys PC World is apologising after some Irish customers were mistakenly asked to pay import duty
Several people ordered from the retailer's Irish site but subsequently received a message saying their product was coming from the UK and was subject to import duty
A number of customers ordered from the retailer's Irish site, and paid the Irish price and VAT as normal.
But they then received a message from the company to say their product was coming from the UK, and they'd have to pay import duty.
Technology correspondent Jess Kelly says the retailer has acknowledged its mistake.
"I spoke to Curry's PC World, and a spokesperson told me that due to a technical error, a small number of our customers in the Republic of Ireland have been mistakenly asked to pay import duty on their orders. We're contacting all affected customers to refund them any costs that may have occurred"
