    Default Shipping to Canada

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but...

    I've done some reseach and I'm not sure how difficult shipping to Canada is from the US. Is it even worth the trouble anymore? Is there anything I need to be worried about?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sent quite a few fragrances to Canada (swaps) without any problems.

    What should I expect at the post office, anything different than the usual shipping process?

    Thanks

    You're going to have to fill out a declaration form, which indicates the contents of the package. The only way you'll be able to ship a fragrance to Canada via USPS is to "fib." Perfumes are considered combustible and, if I'm not mistaken, Canada is pretty stringent about letting perfumes in unless you have a contract (i.e. if you're online fragrance company, etc).

    UPS is a little more pricey, but from my understanding, they will accept fragrances.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I've ordered many many bottles from splitters on Basenotes and also from over ebay and it's never been an issue (I live in Canada and purchase a lot from the States). I've never actually looked at the customs form on the box to see what the fragrance is being declared as so I can't help you there but I don't think it's an issue. Conservatively I've ordered 30 packages all containing anywhere between one and five bottles. I've also received packages which I know were opened and examined by customs, as they leave a note inside saying it's been opened, and still not a problem.

    I've also shipped a lot of packages to the States and it's never been an issue either. I always put cosmetics on the customs form. So knock on wood that it won't become an issue all of a sudden.

    Like I said, fib

    If you disclose the contents honestly, you and your package will be asked to leave the post office...
    I'd go the UPS route, personally.

    I'll check and see what they will charge and see if it's worth it. Thanks!
