Shipping from EU to UK

Planning to buy something from an online shop in Germany and get it shipped to the UK (~50 EUR including VAT, ~20EUR shipping.

What is the current situation with the import taxes in the UK:

  1. Do I ask the seller to quote me without VAT and I pay taxes locally upon arrival?
  2. Do I pay VAT in Germany and it's the seller's responsibility to transfer it to UK?
  3. Or do I pay the VAT twice in both countries?
