Unhappy Ugh just a rant on shipping and duties

I bought three diapers from pampered cheeks and they came in today. The total for my bill was $59 (had paid $5 already). Shipping was $17 and with the exchange it was About $84 ouch. Then it arrives today and I had to pay $13 and change in taxes. I should count myself lucky being the first time I ever had to pay taxes but I seriously don't think I will be ordering from the US anymore. I REALLY hope these diapers are worth it!

Well the diapers were worth the extra $10/each for shipping/fees etc! I think I was a little down due to orthodontist bills etc and the thought of all the money flying out of my pocket was freaking me out! LOL

Glad that at least you're happy with them! It seems pretty hit and miss on whether Canada Post will stop items and collect the taxes. UPS brokerage is sooooo expensive for small value orders - so I'm kind of crazy about avoiding having anything shipped from the U.S. by them (even though its quicker, lol).

Re: Ugh just a rant on shipping and duties

lol I know. I want to order some more eventually but I am kind of scared of getting hit again. Really though I have had a lot shipped over in the last year and I have only had to pay three times. Two of the times I disputed it and I got the money back. Once because it was marked gift and the other one because I had bought a watch for DH and paid $80 but the price tag in the box which the person had left on said $560 so they charged me taxes on that. I had to print off a copy to the paypal and ebay form and dispute it. what a hassle all due to the person not putting the correct forms in the box and/or removing the original price tag.
