In my experience ordering from the States, if a seller pays for DC you can track the parcel on the USPS website to the Canadian border. Once it arrives at the Canadian border, there will be no further updates on the USPS site, but you can go over to the Canada Post website and plug in the DC number and the tracking will pick up over there and show you where the parcel is in transit. It's a very handy feature.

That being said, in my experience as a buyer it is a lot more expensive to ship from the States to Canada with DC than without. Personally, I just determine on a case by case basis if it is worth the additional cost to me (if the seller wants me to cover that extra cost).
