I got charged for GST/PST plus the $5 handling fee last time I ordered from dvdplanet but not the duties. I did however get charged for all of them including the duty when I had a big order from an European Amazon site.

I got charged duties from both DVDPlanet and DDD, DigitaleyesI never ordered from. It came to around 9$ in customs (15% taxes and 5$ handling on a 20$ US dvd)

Got the $5 customs fee and GST charges on my order from dvdplanet. Haven't ordered from the others yet. Amazon orders came through OK.

That's the standard: GST+PST+$5 handling fee.

I want to order form dvdplanet, but I am concerned about DHL shipping into Canada. I have heard stories of large brokerage fees,etc. If anyone could provide some insight it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
