I'm just lucky, that's my guess!

TNT doesn't ask for payment at the door, they give you your parcel and send an invoice later, usually 2-4 weeks later, sometimes even months later. If you don't pay it goes to collections.
They charge flat rate $25 brokerage fee per shipment if the declared value is greater than $40.


You may or may not receive a bill from them, but If I were you I would be expecting one in the mail in a few weeks.

That's on top of the GST and PST that they'll charge of the imported goods.

Oh yeah... there's also GST ON the brokerage fee too...

enjoy!

Fedex typically sends their bill after delivery.

Did you have a sig required on that item? I'd be going to their warehouse and complaining in person. And on the bright side nobody nicked it because if they did I'd be requesting them to pay everything.


I have an order in with redwolf, just some mp5 mid cap mags, and m4/m16 low caps all plastic so I'm not expecting any problems. Just when they will get here is the only question.

Actually, I dont know if there was a signiture required.
I had sent my monitor in for repairs and the company simply sent it back to me after it was done. The only information I could find on the parcel was my address, the senders address and barcode. There also one of those little rubber bubble invoice holders that held a detailing of the work that was done.

You are correct though, I was lucky that noone stole it. Theres someone in my building that steals laundry from people, but I have yet to catch the in the act.

Fed Ex sends you a bill because they believe its more convenient and hassle free to get your item first and then make you pay later, basterds. I rarely ever use UPS or Fed Ex, ect for anything over the border as they have high brokerage fees. I haven't had any problems with EMS though. I received my package from UN Company yesterday, spent a day in customs I used EMS Speedy Post, do they send you invoice? I don't think they do since it goes through Canpost and I;ve never gotton a bill from them after, always upfront payment. I ordered a metal slide , chamber and outer barrel for my hicapa, declared, customs didn't open it, nor did I pay anything when they gave it to me at my front door.
