How to Buy US Goods from Canada

To our fans from the north, we’re here to help you ship from the USA smarter and as cost-effectively as possible! 

Even after the busy USA shopping season in November and December, shoppers are still finding amazing sales going on at the USA retailers. As such, it's a good time to review the list of Prohibited Goods for shipping to Canada. 

Given that these regulations can change frequently, your local customs office will always be the best source of information. Our guide, however, will help give you a general idea of what is and isn't permitted.

Prohibited commodities in Canada are listed as antiques, furs, ivory, precious metals and stones and jewelry. There are certain restrictions surrounding items such as tobacco, alcoholic beverages, medical samples and personal effects. Your account manager can help you further with items such as those.

Average transit times to ship from the USA to Canada range from 1-3 days for express shipping depending on delivery area. You can choose DHL, FedEx or USPS to have your items shipped.

The Canadian Duty/Tax Free amounts are the declared value of your shipment of which duty and tax will not apply. For Canadians, you are able to import shipments with a total declared value of less than 20 CDN, without paying a duty or tax.
