hpin This thread is retarded. are you complaining about shipping charges or tax and duties?

the max you'll pay shipping through USPS to Alberta is 5% gst plus 7% duty for sports equiptment, so 12%.

If you are looking to avoid paying tax and duty then that's another topic.

UPS charges you the same tax+duty plus brokering fee, which translate to we'll pay for your tax at the border but we'll charge you $50 for the trouble. To avoid that fee you can create a UPS account and inform them of your shipment before it crosses the border so that they can charge your account.

You're confusing shipping charges with import tax (duty), this is collected by the shipper but they pay it on to the CDN government.

Items that are not made in the US will be charged duty (basically import tax) on entering canada from US. This is because the same items would be charged duty if they were shipped directly from their original country of origin.

I've shipped a lot of items into canada and I prefer USPS when it comes to this issue. For some reason you have the best chance of not paying duty when you go through USPS, as opposed to couriers where they pretty much always ding you. If you do get charged you can expect 15-20%, so on your $650 that will be 90 to 130 bucks.

luck of the draw
