Saving on duties

Hi, is it better to order everything separately(free shipping of course) or to ship it as one big order? Would either option be cheaper duty wise?

Separately would be cheaper. To my knowledge, except with shitty companies (UPS, Fedex, DHL) you shouldn't have to pay for packages under 100$.

If it's with EbayBanned, they will ship separately, that you want it or not. Yeah, for one single relatively small (6 items) order I got 4 packages.

But, I didn't pay more, it's just that they didn't arrive at the same time so I had the fun of going to the office like 3 times during the week, and I'm waiting for two that should arrive monday or tuesday... It's just a pain when you don't have a car and it's 3$ per bus ride.

Definitely be careful when getting stuff shipped with Fed-Ex or UPS.

I got something that I payed about $250 U.S. for, and UPS charged me close to $85 for their "brokerage fee" that they only mention when they're at the door with your package.
