Shipping using EMS to Canada not safe anymore?
EMS from Korea being charged for duties too
so today i got my gmarket order and i was slapped with $40 from customs for my $95 order.
I was super shocked because i thought i'd be safe with EMS, since everyone knows that Canada has super strict customs and DHL/Fedex will charge you for sure but EMS was always the safe way to go
so i noticed that gmarket declared the value of every item truthfully, and since this is my first time ordering from gmarket i dont know if they did that in the past
customs didnt even open the box so i know they calculated the charge with the declaration form that said there was 95 bucks worth of stuff in the box
i know a friend who ordered over 500$ awhile ago and didnt get charged, and most people on the internet never get charged with EMS
so im wondering if there's been a change with EMS and Canada Post and how they do things or am I just unlucky TT^TT
anyways i know this topic is kind of redundant but im just super pissed
and seriously if even EMS is not safe then us Canadians will have no where to do our online shopping TT^TT
so im really eager to hear about RECENT gmarket orders or experiences with EMS in Canada
