B&H Canadian Shipping “Fast & Easy” Customs Problems
« on: December 05, 2017, 07:52:03 PM »
As a Canadian placing an order with B&H, at checkout they give the option to pre-pay taxes and duty, which sounds great, so it’s the option I’ve chosen for the last few years.

But this week a package came in from B&H with a lens and it has $90 tax and duty, and I already paid $44 USD for “Tax and Duty”.
Now that I think about it, I also paid tax and duty twice on the previous order as well.
When they started advertising “free shipping” to Canada a few years ago I thought it was great, but it looks like the “Fast & Easy” button has effectively scammed me into paying even more for shipping than I did before!

Does anyone else have experience with B&H shipping to Canada?

Am I just unlucky or is B&H (effectively) running a scam on fake customs fees?
