post #23971 of 35088

I think the fact that some of us are less than an hour from the border of the US makes it hard to stomach. We understand that DHL has brokerage fees, it's just an unnecessary option to force on your customers. If I wanted an item fast, I'd like the option to opt-in to DHL or UPS, but not having a standard USPS option seems silly for low cost items. Paying a 50% tax on a $60 polo is insane.

It's not about bitching. Like another member mentioned in a previous post, it's more about being aware and having a realistic expectation when ordering online. I used to order thinking solely about the "sale price" that is on the website but after a couple of custom fee hits and such, I factor in shipping costs, customs, etc. I think everyone will agree that it sucks when ordering a $100 sweater that's 25% off but then pay $35 after shipping and duties. 

 

Yes, it's not strictly on-topic about sales but it definitely plays a big part into the sales people post as some members may pop in and see a site have 30% off and get trigger happy but then end up paying more. Seeing a couple of these posts may bring them back into reality and realize the extra costs. If I made a mistake that ended up costing me more money, hopefully the next guy can learn and not get screwed over. And hey, if people can also post ways to get around paying DHL's ridiculous fees or pay less, isn't that the whole point of posting in this thread to save some money and get the items that you want?

 

So sorry if the Canadians all gathered at the same time because we faced the same issues (probably more of the fact that it's morning here in West Coast and people want to F the dog for the first hour sitting in a cubicle) and expressed it. 

 

You want sale stuff? Bam! J Crew doing 30% + free shipping on winter Bundle up event. http://www.jcrew.com/mens_feature/bundleup.jsp Makes those $100+ sweaters affordable without worrying about customs and shipping :)

Happy to help!

...

As for the customs issues, it really is best to contact the specific store so you know how / with what courier they ship. Many will do their best to help, but a lot of it depends on how their account with that particular courier is set up and whether they are able to use a variety of couriers.

I don't know how it is in North America, but here in Europe, especially Norway, to avoid the brokerage fee you could visit a local DHL office to pay the taxes and duties before the parcel arrives.

Speaking of Canadians, and more specifically Toronto, do yourself a favour and check out the Holt Renfrew Last Call in Vaughan Mills. I pass by it once a week to just browse, this week there was a huge selection of APC raw denimz for like 40 bucks, BLK DNM skinny black jeans for same price, Thom Browne Peacoat for around $400 (down from $2000), etc etc. Won't find better savings than that anywhere on the internet.

dam what the fuck, $40? Surprising as those don't need a sale to sell. kind of like Canada Goose. too bad I'm not in TO.

also, anyone know when ssense drops to 40-50? and does blackbird do some sort of winter/boxing day sale?

I've done this before and it was pretty straightforward. I got a partial refund of the duties and taxes about a month or two after mailing the form.

I bought a CG from a company in the US and when they sent it I got assessed about $80 in duties and taxes; I filled up all the forms, put together all the documentation I had, and sent it in like 8 months ago, never heard a thing back.

What's with P&B? I was going to purchase a sale item and the order stated that returns would only be accepted for GILT credit. I emailed customer service and they confirmed that this was true. P&B return policy on their site makes no mention of this being the case.

I returned sale items to P&B in the past and did not have to accept GILT credit. Has their policy changed?
