Default Answered: Ameriwade

I know this isn't really a WI or WW problem, but if someone could help that would be great, thanks! I hope this isn't in the wrong spot!

So, I can't really get webkinz where I live, so I suggested to my mom that she gets some off of Ameriwade for Christmas. She said no because she thinks that there will be border costs.

So are there any people here living in Canada who have bought off of Ameriwade? Did you have to pay border costs? Were there any other extra costs that you had to pay, or was it just the $5.00 shipping and the price of your product?
I have also heared that the border costs depend on the price of your murchandise. Our order will be $35.00 to $60.00 canadian.

Thanks so much! Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you, Ritzcracker! Well, in the quote in cpom's post, it doesn't say anything about UPS.
Yikes! $30 is way too much extra! :/


I've bought things off of ebay before, and haven't had to pay any extra fees. I hope that Ameriwade is the same!


Are there any other opinions?
The standard rule is Order under $60 usually don't have problems getting trough customes with out fees but it is not quaranteed.

Ameriwade is currently down for site maintenance, but I saw this on there front page:

"Thanks for Checking us Out. At this time we Shipping to the USA (Priority/Fed Ex) & Canada (First Class) for a Flat Rate of $5.00 (See OUR POLICY for further information). We also Ship to the UK/GB (First Class - We are not responsible for any customs charges that might accure) ) Price Varies, Feature/Pack Codes from trading cards Shipped Free. We are working on shipping to other Countries.For any Questions, Please contact Robert@ameriwade.com"

Since the site is down right now, I can't check out what further information is listed in their policy.

You might want to send a quick note to Robert at Ameriwade to find out.

My personal experience with shipping stuff into Canada is that it depends on how it is sent. Regular mail I don't think there is a lot of extra charges, but if it is sent UPS they charge a hefty brokerage fee (we once had to pay about $30 brokerage fees as well as GST for something that was supposed to be a free warranty replacement...)

I think the owner of Ameriwade is on WI, so maybe look him up and ask him?

Okay, thanks! We decided what we would buy, and my mom said that she will definately buy from there! It's only going to be about $50. I'm so excited!

Thanks for all of your help!

I'm glad that it gives a portion of the money to WI!
