How to save the spend while shop US online & ship back Canada
As we all know, when we shop US online & ship back Canada, except the price of the goods, 2 other fees will be involved in.
1. Costumes and Tax
2. 3rd party courier service charge
To save the total spend while buying items, we must look it completely.
1. Choose a free SST(state sales tax )state to receive your parcel
To shop in US, the SST(state sales tax) is charged, even though it is less often to be charged during online shopping. However, the best way is to choose an address in the FREE SST state. And the USGOBUY warehouse is located in one of the free SST state, Oregon.
2. Shipping high value stuff via USPS
As we all know, the Canada costumes charges the duty and the goods and services tax(GST) or the harmonized sales tax (HST) and the provincial sales tax (PST).The duty exemption value is CAN$20 (Canadian dollars),and the GST exemption value is CAN$20 or CAN$60(gift claimed),which is so low. Even though it is not guarantied that none shipment via USPS will be taxed, but for sure, to go with FedEx, DHL will certainly be taxed, and according to the experience, it is often that shipment via USPS is not taxed.(Science the commercial express claims the duty automatically and the postal service is examined with certain sample rate ).
3. Choose a middleman to forward the stuff to you while using USPS
Even though the postal service is examined with a certain sample rate, it is still very easy to be detected while shipping your products directly from the retailers(eg. Amazon, Costco, etc).One more tip is that try to pack your stuff with an unimpressive way, which professional forwarder would assist you properly.(eg. With common used cardboard box, with properly packed ways, ship with a reasonable frequency, within a popular weight rank) One more benefit to ship via a middleman is that it will deduct your tax with the tax exemption CAN$60(gift claimed) policy.(you can even claim the gifts are sent to different family members )
4. Choose the right forwarder
A big component of the total spend is the service charge from the forwarder. To apply a US address with the forwarder, usually, a lot of fees will be charged, but to go with USGOBUY charge none, (to see the detailed)
No registration fee
No membership fee
No Consolidation Fee
NO Handling or Processing Fees
NO Repackaging Fees
The most important thing, the FedEx and USPS shipping rate is much lower than the most US forwarders. Ship 5lbs via FedEx, starts with CAN$50
In one word, to save the total spend, you really have to compare the whole shopping process. USGOBUY has really offered great benefits for Canadian shoppers.
