By the way, analysts say that if it continues this way, within the year the Canadian dollar might surpass the US dollar. It's a great time to be alive (again).
Biggest hitter: The so-called "fuel surcharge".

As an idea, to typically import accessories for the radios I sell, I often pay more for the shipping then the accessories themselves, and that DOESN'T include the 15% + fees when it hits customs. $200USD to ship a box from China? Easy, I spend at least that much for every accessory order (single box).

Now that a stab how much it costs when I import radios which have double or triple the volumetric weight.

Long story short:

Importing is a very expensive business if you don't have connections or a very strong cash flow. It isn't necessarily complicated to get in, but it is somewhat difficult to keep all the numbers in check.
