Too bad they don't do it like El Mercado Online, who also ship DHL, but mark it as $5.00 so its usually next day or 2 day delivery from LA to Toronto with no taxes or hassle.

Shouldnt be more than 5 or 6 bucks

I dunno....it's usually $7 for a brokerage fee so you might have to pay tax on top of that....hopefully you don't have to pay duty since the wholesale value is under $20....

Deny because it still gets shipped from Karmaloop. Think about it logically here.

Amazon isn't going to buy products from KL then ship it themselves, why would they do that?

They probably get a commission fee from KL for having it found thru Amazon. That's it.

if i ordered a $20 tee how much would customs/tax/duty cost? assuming they claimed it as $15 or whatever its wholesale price is.....i didn't think that you get charged customs if the thing is worth under $20....

Canada post tells me you have a $60 allowance.
But remember most of these fees are brokage and handling fees.

$60 if it's marked a GIFT.

$20 is the most your allowed through a retail shop.

DHL is on some BS....karmaloop needs to switch to USPS
I would be happy to wait an extra few days to a week longer to receive things if it meant saving all the fees DHL throws on....

Damn that sucks. I ordered a pair of shoes for $80 and I got charged $16. Not bad considering I ordered the shoes on Wednesday and received them on Friday blinkyeyes Shipping was surprisingly fast.

^thats so cheap...i made a $160 order and paid $80 customs on top of the $30 for shipping....

i should let everyone know that I emailed karmaloop a long email telling them how bad DHL is for international customers and that USPS would be better blah blah blah and I just got a reply that that message will me forwarded to the manager at karmaloop...

hopefully they listen to my recommendation blushing

I found out that DHL's fees are pretty much exactly the same as FedEx.

$7.00 handling fee for processing your order through customs. Duties and taxes.

But at least their pick up facility is a lot cloesr for me than FedEx which is near Scarlem Town Center..

what is the percentage of duties/taxes i would have to pay for an order? say an order around 200$. 20% of that for duties?
Jan 29, 2008 @ 10:35
^probably about 30%....
jlasa, can you send an email to shippingquestions@karmaloop.com too and give them a link to this page?
