You got it wrong.
Customs charged you ¤8.00 duty + VAT if appropriate.
The carrier charged you the handling fee and COD charge.
There are no charges for this type of customs processing except for a
20c charge for a single administrative document which is an EU charge.

Why I oughta...
I ordered 2 t-shirts from thinkgeek, total price $29.
Customs got their grimy hands on them and charged:
¤8 duty + ¤12 "handling fee" + ¤5 COD charge. So
¤25 extra for something that costs $29. I'm sorry
but that's extortion, so I sent them back.
