so I have used ebay a bunch of times for shirts and music stuff and a guitar. It's all been from people in the States and I live in Canada. I have never once paid taxes on it, it's been through ups everytime. Now some guy is using Fedex and they say it's going to be a pretty big tax to cross the border I got the item for 400, during the winter(it's a snowboard) it goes retail 1300. So any idea on how much I'm going to get taxed, this blows, a pretty big deal might end up sucking.
I once ordered a $120 mandolin and UPS charged me $62. $22 for duties and $40 for "Brokerage fee" which came as a surprise when I got it. Go to FedEx's website and look up "brokerage" or "duties".
Or you can just call them and ask how much they charge.
the guy who is shipping it has no clue what he's doing, last time I do business with someone who isn't a company on ebay.
I meant calling FedEx. Ask him to mark it as a gift if he has no clue what he's doing, that might get you out of paying duties.
