Default Cheapest shipping to Canada?

Just wondering what vendor has the best prices on shipping shisha to Canada? Since I can only order ~300g at a time without getting busted, some rates are REALLY expensive for jsut a box. IE HookahStore is $30 for one box... a bit pricey when that is all you are ordering.

Thanks.

That's because the cheapest shipping to Canada is $30. That's the price of the international medium flat rate shipping box. Unless your order can fit in a small flat rate box ($16), you'll have to spend $30.

I've ordered kilos of shisha at once without any issue from current and past HP vendors. Don't be afraid to fill up that medium box as much as possible, make it count!

I got busted by duties when I ordered over 1kg, woulda had to pay something stupid like $250 in taxes if I picked it up! I read over at a couple of other shisha sites that if you order < 300grams you are much more likely to have it go through...

That's terrible. I'd just try ordering with another vendor that's less "obvious". Personally, I've never had to pay more than $20 in taxes, and that was on a $500 order. I guess you just got real unlucky.

As for pricing, have a look at this table



Small box: $11.45 up to 4 lbs
Medium box: $26.95 up to 20 lbs

So really, I don't know what orifice the vendors pull their numbers out of, because they just don't match up with what I have here. If I'm wrong, please edify me.

I can kind of clarify. The Priority Small Flat Rate for $11.45 is a very small box that will fit probably 2-3 50g boxes. We personally don't use it. We offer USPS First Class International which comes out to be $12-$25 for up to 3 jars of 250g. Does take a lot longer to receive though.

Thanks for the input! Sometimes it's hard for us to know if we're paying too much for shipping or just enough.

O_O that suck, how is it a scam? And btw I live in Quebec and it seems the only time I dont get busted is when I add a Hookah pipe to my order for some reason... Like my last order was from hookah-shisha.com and I ordered for more then a 100$ so I got a free hookah with it and I only had to pay 15$ in taxes... Maybe I'm just lucky or maybe they only consider the biggest object in the order or something, who knows. Anyway, give us some news about that order of yours O_O
