Thread: Customs Problem

  1. #1

    Default Customs Problem

    I ordered a bottle of A*Men Pure Coffee on Ebay and was shipped from the US on September 29th. On October 3rd, I received a notice from Canada Post saying " 2011/10/03 17:08 MISSISSAUGA International item arrived in Canada and will be reviewed by Customs". It is now October 7th and it still hasn't cleared customs. So has anyone ever experienced a problem like this before?

    ^^^ if it is shipped fedex or UPS , no it is not. Fragrancenet, Sephora ship to Canada. Canada Post are ***holes, they wont carry any liquids. When I was living there few years back, it was a real hassle.

    What about buying from eBay, most members use USPS.
