I did once receive an express item through HK post and the Canadapostie had a charge for %15 of the packages declared value.

whatever happens you should probably have an extra $100 + lying around for when the doorbell rings

I've never ordered from
Usually consumer goods are charged at around 18% customs fee's but again this depends on exactly what your ordering and from whom and where it was made ect.

People make a good living understanding this system and as such its not an easy to explain system.

Sufficed to say Order local if you can.
