This may only apply to Canadian buyers. I recently purchased a set of Hifiman 4XX Headphones, because they were on sale at $160.
Add $15 for Shipping then convert to Cdn was approx. $225 CDN.
Was a bit of an impulse buy, but I made the buy anyways.
Much to my chagrin however. When I picked up the headphones at my local Post Office, I was charged an additional $35 CDN. for Customs Fees. So $260 CDN total, for the headphones. This really had me regretting my purchase and took the sheen off of something that I had been looking forward to.
Afterwards, I checked Drops site and yes, in the FAQ's, there is a mention that Customs Fees "may" be applied.
This, of course is not on Drop. However, perhaps Drop might consider using a different Shipping company? DHL was the Carrier on this one.
Like many. I have made multiple online purchase over the last number of years, from other vendors (Amazon mainly, of course). Never had to pay Customs Fees.
I don't like to make purchases with my fingers crossed, on what my total cost will be. I won't be purchasing from Drop again.
