I was just wondering if anyone knows how to figure whether or not your order is going to have customs charges and how you can find out how much it is so that you're not surprised?
I ask because on ebay, ordering items such as many of the shoes I look at say shipping to Canada is 32.95 or something high like that...the shipping is via USPS if that matters at all...and it says right underneath that "additional international charges may or may not apply"....How can I find out if they will, and more importantly how much it will be if it is...? You'd think with a shipping of 32.95 that the customs and etc would be included in that shipping cost...so I'd like to find out...
I went on Florsheim's website (I'm not buying from them but they wrote out a shipping policy to Canada that made me think of this topic) and it says this...
Canadian shipments will have a $40.00 USD Shipping charge (includes duty, tax and freight) for the first pair and $20.00 USD each additional pair (includes duty, tax, and freight). Canadian shipments may take 7 to 14 days for delivery and will ship via a carrier of our choice.
** Additional $75.00 will be charged to orders shipping to certain remote locations.
Remote charges will be indicated during the checkout process.
It was from this that now I'm not sure if ebay's 32.95 also includes customs or if I still may have to pay something more that I'm not aware I'll be paying or how much it will be (I think I said the same thing 3 times in this thread but I'm typing as I think):
