    Hi,

      I live in Ottawa, Canada. I was wondering about the duty. I thought that we wouldn't have to pay duty on speakers if they are made in the US?

    Also have you ever tried shipping to Canada with USPS? I hear they don't charge duty because they have an agreement with Canada Post.

    Not sure if anyone has answers to these questions but thanks in advance,

     Jason

    Actually the new taxes are now 13%:

     Federal GST since Jan 1 2008….5%
    Ontario PST ….8%

    You should really consider using USPS when shipping to Canada. Fedex and UPS charge and additional 4% or so in brokerage and disbursement. Your Canadian clients would really appreciate the money you end up saving them.

     thanks,

     Jason

    Thanks Jason, but USPS rates compared to what we get with our high volume FedEx account are quite a bit more than 4% higher.  I recently shipped a 5T system to an APO via USPS and it cost almost $400!
