I've only ordered from Karmaloop once which was March of last year. My experience: I bought 2 shirts, total of $56 with rep code and shipping included. shipping was fast, took about 2-3 days. I'm in Vancouver btw. And I wasnt charged any extra fees.

I wanna order a pair of LRG jeans on Eastbay. How much do you think I'll be charged for duties/taxes? thanks for any help

EDIT: shiiiiet it says 35% duties fee. meaning I'll have to pay like 80 bucks for a 60 dollar pair of jeans?


From what I remember, I'm pretty sure Eastbay includes the duty, etc in the final total. So upon delivery to your door, you shouldnt have to pay any additional fees. Its good to catch a 20% or 30% code when available which can absorb the duty charges so in the end you're mostly paying shipping only.

Just seen the "edit" but with Eastbay , what you pay at check out is what
you pay total. They charge and deal with all the duties and brokage fees.
So there is No guessing game and no surprises when your package comes.

The price at check out is all youll pay , if its too much dont continue.
Also try searching for some promo codes online that can sometimes
balance out the duties and extra BS.

If you are under a certain value for the goods then they wont charge you. I've done this with UPS a few times. Not sure how cheap it's got to be tho. For you looks like $60 is good with DHL?

There is a twist to this , but im not sure what it is.
It has to marked gift with a $60 value or lower.
But thats $60 CAN , so depending on the dollar , they could
put $60 USD then it goes over the $60 CAN and you pay
dutie and all those extra.

Curious if anyone knows but is it a random process whereby customs opens your package to access the value of the contents or do they have quotas to meet or something else? Thanks.

Except the CAD is basically equal to the USD right now.

1.00 USD = 1.01139 CAD <---as of 2/21/08

Shipping Charge
Why is it so expensive to ship to Canada? Just buying a 20 dollar shirt costs 42 dollars extra just to ship?

what do you mean?

its pretty straight forward.... you put your name and the shipping address. and when they ship it to that place, they ll send you an email. you drive down, pay a few bucks and pick it up. then you drive back through the border.

I have been using it for car parts. no problem.

oh alright. yeah that seems like a good option. so instead of putting your own address for karmaloop. give them that other places address?

Won't customs give us a hard time?? I mean I can't think of any other reason to go to Point Roberts other than to do this. And when you show up at the border and back in like 30 min, its pretty obvious.

Your also allowed a small amount if your there for less than 48 hours.
Sometimes they wont even ask you to pull over and pay. Just dont lie.
