NIPOST (EMS) PARCEL RECEIVER FEES

I have ordered certain equipment and items for an ongoing business venture through Ali Express and it was delivered at the Victoria Island Post Office.

I usually get calls or text messages from NIPOST personnel informing me about the arrival/delivery of the goods. However, the Post Office Officials keep demanding for a 'fee' and claiming they establish the fee based on the weight of the goods. Now these fees are not officially receipted and no document is issued by these NIPOST staff. At least something to show that as a public servant, they have legally collected money from a citizen for approved administrative services and for the citizen to show he/she has paid a service fee to the Government.

Recently, I have had a lot of arguments with them on this. The worry is, if one refuses to pay, they might mark one's name and goods, then frustrate future efforts at importing anything. This money they ask for is seemingly illegal. Funny thing is they even send SMS to notify you of the parcel and the fee they expect you to pay.

Who else experiences this at the Nigerian Postal Service? What I try to do is negotiate what ever the NIPOST Staff are asking for, the moment it goes above 500 Naira.

Are there better ways of handling this?

Although I have ordered for any large or heavy items through Aliexpress; what I have been ordering and getting it from post office is just SD cards and other phone accessories. All I have been paying is N100, N200 For each item. I have not paid above that anyway.

It's official, bro. I mean the fee based on weight. It's called handling charges.
Here in Abuja, you'd get a receipt for it (in recent times).
You just need to be sure what the charges are for segments of weight and insist on receipts.
But don't sweat it, bro. You need your item. It'd be unfortunate for them to make your life difficult for nothing
