Beware of UPS shipping to Canada

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just received a package today from UPS. The value was $20. I had paid the the shipper $11 for shipping. UPS put an additional $21.28 Import Charge on the item... I paid $32.28 for a $20 item..They are ripping people off!!!!!!!

And for the record, Fedex is just about as bad. DHL is good about fees and I would use them, but I basically only get stuff shipped USPS from the States. I refuse to buy from anyone in the States who won't ship USPS - period.

I agree that UPS is a little "over the top" when it comes to shipping charges but do you think it was necessary to make the same post in five different threads?
