    Are there any problems associated with shipping to Canada?

    I'm a newbie and only ship to US.

    Any tariffs etc. that I should be aware of?

    I'm mostly doing Emmy Consideration videos now but will be doing vinyl someday. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff I've saved Japanese Connie Francis colored vinyl etc etc etc...

    Well you gotta do the customs thing (declare value, etc.) and pay extra for postage. Maybe other stuff as well.....

    Then you have to send forum member Gary a 10% commission and a few other considerations.... :D

    Larry, it can be as inexpensive as $1.60 (small bubble-pack envelope sent groundmail [my personal favorite] ). This of course doesn't apply to larger items such as LB's and vinyl and DVD's, only CD's. Then it goes up from there to insane amounts.

    Don't use UPS - bad service

    I don't understand your question Larry. What do you mean? Ours are a three letter/three number combination, whereas the US. is all numbers, if that's what you're asking.

    I always ship to Canada, and mostly it is cheaper than using US PriMail! All you have to do is fill out the little green slip deal, and you are done!

    I would advise anyone who sells on eBay NOT to exclude Canada (or any other country for that matter), as it really is no big deal to ship anywhere. You can go to the USPS website and figure out the postage very easily.

    Here is the link to their international shipping calculator, including shipping to Canada:

    Heh, that's hilarious! :laugh: More like 7 to 10 business days at the most. I do this all the time Larry and have it on very good authority that even this mail gets shipped air. It's just a ruse to get you to spend double on shipping. Also this way you don't have to apply the Customs sticker because it's envelope, not parcel. ;) (single CD shipment only)

    A hearty good day to our neighbors to the north.


    I've had great experience withCanadian buyers. I only insist on PayPal or Postal MO from them though - my bank charges me $5.oo for deposits on all Canadian items for somereason - the Cdn Postal mo's can be cashed in US post offices...

    ...for free. ;) As well as some US. financial institutions, or so I've heard from some Ebay sellers.
