Doesn't matter if it's marked as a gift, if there was a price listed you'll still have to pay the 30 whatever % tax, and if there's no price listed, they guess the retail cost.

if they make u go pick up the parcel at the post office. there's no way u can avoid those charges.
and yes, UPS is the worst when it comes to taxes. that is way i m tryin to pass on the word to all my friends to never use UPS period. but USPS is random at charging taxes. so can't really say they will not tax u each time. its just luck.

This is the Canadian Border & Security Agency @ work here gentlemen - trying to even out the economic playing field for Canada - think about it - if everyone could buy their kicks from the US for cheaper than Canadian retail store prices all the time who is going to support our economy? ( :tongue:
)

You got bit by Canada Customs - booooo.

Last time I got a NDS used pair of Navigation AM90s from a UK seller on ebay & when I got them through Canada Post they hit me up for $70+ CDN for duties & excise tax. It still stings.

Btw the shoes were won for $60 USD. :frown:

Do you get charged more customs/duties if the country is farther? e.g. would you get charged more for something from Japan than the US or is it all the same?

u gotta tell them to mark as gift and $10 with UPS.

the brokerage fees don't kick in till you hit $20 i think.

^I like much of you HATE UPS, due to the crazy brokerage fees.

BUT, I have gotten packages from UPS, with NO.. I repeat NO charges what so ever upon delivery. I'm dumbfounded. I don't know how their service works anymore.

^^^^I've never gotten fees through UPS cuz i get the person sending to mark package as $10 and gift.

If your package is like over $15 you will get charged if you send via UPS.

If you're receiving it via USPS or reg mail or whatever you gotta keep it under $60 and mark as gift.

they're CROOKS!

I never pay charges if it's shipped USPS once in a blue moon I may get charged because the seller didn't listen to my instructions to mark it as a $25 gift.

UPS though...... :smh:

always tell the seller to mark is as $25 gift if sending 1 pair. If your seller is sending 2 pairs..mark it as $50 gift and send it USPS always. Anything over $60 value will be taxable.
