Shipping charges blow a**!

Quick question, what is the charge beside my shipping cost. Wired is sending it trough usps. I need to know if they are going to hit me with a 100 bill for duty and brokerage. Im from alberta and the package will be 650$.

Canada Post will only charge duty on the declared value, which is about the same as sales taxes. I heard something a long time ago about the free trade agreement between Canada and USA so that items made in USA would be duty free. Dont know if it still stands though...

Would you give up your guns for "free" healthcare?

Just trolling, let's not turn this into a political thing!

shipping with usps is by far the cheapest and the cost is always low if it is charged.

I have ordered from wired multipul times, some times there is no charge some times it is small. Nothing like the "brokerage fee" that ups charges.
