Meermin has improved a lot on international orders. I ordered two pairs of Meermins 4 years ago. They shipped with DHL and DHL charged me CAD 140 on duties. Since that, I have been super cautious with orders from outside Canada.For any Canadians wondering.
I paid $187 CDN for the shoes
$19.11 for shipping
$24 for taxes , 0 duty
And $11.30 for UPS brokerage fee
Comes out to $242.42 CDN dollars.

I asked DHL to decompose the fee. As I can recall, they charged around 20 CAD for brokerage and the rest is tax and duties.$140 for? Shipping? Taxes? Duty?
If meermin did free shipping to the USA. I could go that route as I have family in the USA. But I notice they still charge for shipping.
They shipped my order via UPS. Not sure if it makes a difference by carrier. I wonder if they use usps as an alternative. I know FedEx and ups aren't too bad with their brokerage fees.I asked DHL to decompose the fee. As I can recall, they charged around 20 CAD for brokerage and the rest is tax and duties.
That's terrible. I wonder why meermin doesn't use usps. I'll have to inquireI got mine shipped with UPS, and got hit with a 150 CAD dollar duty. When I called to self declare, that duty got magically waived, and I only had to pay like 30 bucks for tax + handling fee for UPS to drop off my shoes.
Wait, but there is more. A month later got an invoice from UPS for the duty I didn't pay.
Let me tell you, it was so difficult to get them to remove that invoice. Took me 4 hours of calling, went through 6 fing departments to get to the person with the authority to believe my story, and the catch is, I have everything in email as proof that duty was waived by UPS due to brakeage error. I'm never using UPS again.
We need to get Meermin to ship only USPS. UPS needs to burn in hell, and go bankrupt.
This morning, I had a notification from UPS for duties of one shipment and I paid it immediately. This afternoon, a UPS guy knocked on my door to deliver the package while I was in an important meeting. My wife answered and he asked my wife to pay the duties again. My meeting finished earlier than my wife made the payment. I told this guy the payment was made, and the guy asked for receipt. While I was looking for the receipt online, he said he didn’t have time and left. What poor information system and process.The recent MTO, I got Meermin to ship with USPS, but If it comes with UPS again, I will get my credit card company involved.
I hate UPS with passion. 4 hour of my life is alot of money.
