    The mp3car.com store ships to Canada.
    So does DigitalWW.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Be careful... I just ordered my M2-ATX and had it shipped to Toronto. It shipped via UPS very fast, however, they killed me at the door with a hefty brokerage fee.

    The breakdown was as follows:

    MP3CAR.com
    M2-ATX: $89 (USD)
    UPS Shipping: $10.27 (USD)

    UPS COD
    GST: $7.21 (CDN)
    PST: $8.24 (CDN)
    BROKERAGE FEE: $39.10 !?!?! (CDN)
    BROKERAGE GST: $2.74!! (CDN)


    Grand Total: $173 CDN or $150 USD !!!!!

    I'm pretty upset about the shipping cost. Sure would of been nice if I could of bought it in Canada. Maybe there's a better way to ship it? I'm no expert on buying and shipping from US, who knows, maybe someone else knows some tricks?

    It wasn't COD.....it's UPS raping us Canucks with brokerage fees. When merchandise crosses the border, Canada Customs charges duties and taxes on the value of the item. UPS takes it upon themselves to pay this for the reciever, and then demands that you pay them the duties and taxes PLUS a service charge (or brokerage) for doing so, or you don't get your package. That's why, when i ship from the states, i ask for USPS with a tracking number and insurance. Postal mail isn't as fast or reliable, but at least when it shows up i know that the charges i will incur are the duties and taxes on the item value converted to Canadian funds, plus $5 for the brokerage. Plus, if you insure your package, which usually isn't really expensive, even if it takes 3 weeks, you know you aren't gunna be out a big chunk of cash if it's lost/broken/etc.

    And in all honesty, you shouldn't have had to pay any duty, as i'm pretty sure anything that is considered computer parts is duty free. You'd still need to pay the taxes on the item value converted to Canadian funds however.
