I am tired of import taxes every time I participate in a drop. I don't mind paying the actual price of products in USD even with the Canadian dollar doing so bad. I was wondering if there is any chance of a Canadian branch ever opening up so drops can be mailed quicker and import taxes wouldn't apply. I know there are a lot of Canadian customers who would appreciate this as well. Something similar to what Amazon.ca does. *BTW Check out The Next Best Thing Studio on youtube.

Seriously. Years after this original post and I just paid $30CAD on a package that contained THREE keycaps at $30 each. (Which could have been sent in a padded envelope instead of the router-sized box they came in.) A Canadian branch would be so handy - and so many more people would buy from Drop knowing that they wouldn't get hit with such ludicrous customs fees on top of already bonkers shipping.

Why does drop’s tracking always stop in the US? Why am I left in the dark about what company is in charge of Canadian shipping once the package crosses the border?

I just wish they wouldn't use DHL. Horrible company (from my past experiences). Had a driver try to blackmail me and extort extra money when the delivery and customs had been pre-paid by the seller. And I don't think it was an accident because he said cash only and also said they would only make a second attempt after a failed delivery if I gave him a good tip. Scumbags.

I had an issue with my Drop+THX Pandas and they send the return label to be shipped by UPS and I had requested thru email that they ship the replacement pair out via UPS also. They said no problem. Fortunately my Oandas corrected themselves after a few soft reset attempts so didn’t need to go thru with the replacement. I have found out that if you have a special request upon purchase or replacement for shipping, if you ask they will give you a choice of one of their alternate couriers. I ended up ordering the Drop+THX Panda Boom Mic and immediately after placing the order, I sent an email to request UPS and they sent the Boom Mic UPS. They just don’t make this very well known. I would LOVE it if they added a .ca website .. that would be awesome!! Hope this helps for next time ... happy listening. Boomer 🐼 🎧

That’s not even something to be butthurt about though. Currency exchange rate isn’t the limiting factor, it’s cpi. People are acting like someone in Japan should feel butthurt all the time because the yen is worth a cent—when they actually have a much higher cpi and the average person can afford foreign items much more easily.

I just got 2 of the pc37x headset's and paid 26ish CAD in duties/brokerage EDIT: oh yeah, and shipping alone was 2x15 USD! Shipping should be less per item when ordering more than one. Right? Isn't wholesale the reason massdrop even exists?

I can see they shipped my 6xx's via DHL which means there will be brokerage. Why don't they use USPS? USPS hands off to Canadapost and there is no brokerage.

I just got HD6xxs ordered a couple days ago and they appear to be shipping with DHL. I'm gonna guess I'll get rekt and pay tons of duty based on the comments here which will totally void the whole point of getting them for $175 USD with the BF promo.. lel. I'll report back with how bad the damage is.

if you got the same deal as me then $41 is about right; (175 USD * 1.33) * 1.13 [hst] + 10 [border handling fee]. This is about what I expected to pay. You can't get really bypass HST or the "handling fee". Big sellers (amazon) will lob it into the bill whereas I'm sure massdrop can't be bothered.

Oh, probably should clarify the $41: CAD principle cost = 175 USD * 1.33 (USDCAD rate at time of purchase) = 232.75 CAD 232.75 * 0.13 + 10 = 40.25 There may have been some discrepancy for the forex rate at the time of delivery vs. purchase so they mark the tax according to the rate at delivery iirc.

I ended up paying 44$ in customs plus the 297 $ give or take a few cents, the original price is a steal, but the 44 customs is quite a lot, I agree it would be handy for Canadian s to have massdrop be here!
