so yea... i've heard that appart from the shipping costs that you pay when doing your checkout after buying on a specific online website you're going to pay tons of money to get your shit if it comes somewhere outside of your continent.

for example, I live in Portugal [europe] and want to buy some shiiz @ karmaloop , my friend told me that imma pay 300€ just so I can get two pairs of vans delivered by DHL?

wow , im so confused and never felt so dumb.. this question also applies when buying in Ebay.com (.us) where I intended to buy a dslr camera :/

help.

I have an eBay store and I'll break it down for your real quick.

1.  You're Fucked

2.  Customs will get you if you buy from an online retailer because of the receipt and invoice.  They will see the price you paid for the item and charge you accordingly.

3.  High Cost of Shipping - For the merchant to be protected from potential chargebacks the item must be trackable, and may even require a signature (high priced items over $250).  This cost is passed on to you, the buyer.

Loopholes -

Make friends on the internet and have them ship it for you.  I have a couple of Aussie dudes that I ship Supreme stuff too.  The send money as a gift and I ship it International Priority Mail.  It takes a while to build that trust, but there is significant savings.  I declare the value at $20 and just write that its a gift.  No customs issue, and International USPS Priority Mail provides tracking.

I would avoid at all costs bruh. The customs duties are gonna kill you. For some reason the USA and EU don't have a free trade agreement yet (we're the two continents that always talk about it but don't have a set up yet.)

Long story short just buy from an EU based online retailer, if you buy from any EU or EFTA country you won't get hit with customs, just a larger shipping bill.

I don't think free trade applies. NAFTA exists and you can still get hit with duty between Canada and the US.

The EU is an almost completely free trade area. I can order a shrt from France or beer from Germany and pay no custom duties when it arrives in the UK. I'm not familiar with how NAFTA works though.

this is because the duty tax doesn't apply to where the item is shipped from, but  where its manufactered. Most shit isn't made in the USA (i.e. clothes)

^ you in the EU or USA?
Edit: you live in Canada. I was talking about if you live in an EU country, if you live outside the EU and order from an EU based retailer then you will still get slapped with customs in your country. 
OP: good idea, glad I could help.

Stick to your continent for the most part and you should be fine. Unless you are ordering over a certain amount.

Hey, have you heard of Parcel Zoom - www.parcelzoom.com. They offer you a free USA address so you can shop using their address, they store for you for free in 90 days then ship it to your house upon your request at a quite good price via DHL, Fedex, USPS something. USPS must be always the cheapest way but I prefer DHL. DHL via this site has better price than I usually pay for direct shipping from selling sites.

Also have consolidation services as more weight less cost it usually is. 
For the custom part, you can declare your own custom form so you can marked as gift with less value or whatever you want. Ask them to remove original tags and/or bills for you . That should help to make it easier.

Hope this helps!
