Evike ships via UPS, UPS charges you what ever they feel like for duty/importation charges, typically anywhere from 50 to 80% of the product value, and this is on top of what/if Evike charges you for shipping.
For example ordered $100 in accessories, UPS charged $80 in fees to release it to me. Same accessories in country would have cost $140 shipped. So an attempt to save $40 cost me an additional $40.
And even with their "documentation" it can still get seized if the manufactures website does not match or if they do a test and it does not match. Or even if someone at the CBSA is just having a bad day and decides to seize it.
