Thumbs down customs

WELL! bummer....I received my Paper Wishes order today, the first I had made in many months, used my last $15 gift certificate, was pleased that it paid the the shipping for me, but it arrived with a customs charge slapped on it of
$14.59 !! Can't win LOL !

Rhonda , did you get hit with a customs charge lately?

Heather, twice before Christmas...yikes...it is what it is...I've decided that the HOTP stash that I have will have to do! I loved today's Monday Madness sale but I resisted.

I am so sorry about that. Is there a price rage where you don't need to pay customs?

Is this paid through the PW bill - or something you have to pay to get your package released?

Rhonda, yikes is right !! sure takes the fun out of it. Lee, you are right !!!

Daria, I am not sure now... my order was $24.14 USD before 9.99 shipping . using the GC $15 USD brought it down to 19.13 USD = $25.30 CAD, not a big purchase ! Slap $14.59 on that and its not worth it.

Carol, I had to pay that to release parcel, paid to Canada Customs.

Would that also happen if you were net a package from an individual instead of a company? (Wondering if you bought things through a friend and they sent it to you)?

Great minds think alike Nancy. I was wondering the same thing.

I haven't had any custom charges on gifts. Last week I received a gift within Canada from a friend, 3 1/2 hours away by car and she paid dearly for a light weight package to be mailed ($17). Friends that had mailboxes in the United States, are getting charged at the Canadian border. The best way to bring back product is to visit our American friends and spend at least 2 full days.
