sometimes i think they do charge duty tax ... but i would check with the company as i know a lot of them just add it in the cost

Anything I order from the US I pick up at the border an hour away. Once I had to pay brokerage fees.

There's a risk of duty if it's more then 30CAD I think. But it's totally random, you are more likely to be charged on orders of higher amounts and especially at christmas it seems common!

Exactly what the ladies above mentioned. My experience has been random and usually over a 25-30 dollar amount.

I think it's like what all the ladies mentioned if it's around $30 they will charge a Duty on it
