I did Fed-ex to Canada, and did not pay brokerage fees. However I did not spend hundreds of dollars on that shipment, it was a small shipment of 6 items total.
The weird thing though is that as I tracked my package, it actually made it to Vancouver, and was sent to Tenessee?!! Still it made it in 3 days.

I've gotten massacred by Fedex, once the order value was marked at $10, was 4lbs of protein, and the handling fees were just under $40. Never had an issue with USPS, definitely the way to go.

I get amazing service with Fedex and had many problems with USPS.. there are orders that simply would disappear (not NP orders). I get my order sometimes in less than 24 hours ..beat that. Oh yah there are some fees due to customs.

I'm ok with delivery on both, but the FedEx fees have a habit of being high for me. Let us know when/if you get your package safely

weird how things just work out... I am going to the US next week for a few days so I will get everything shipped there... I won't have to experience Fedex or customs then...

So you guys are saying even with the FedEx international shipping (if you pick the most expensive 1-3 day one)..you have to pay a customs fee??
I'm planning on making an order tommorow....Is this for both of the FedEx options? I know there's one that's about 4 dollars less, which is 4-6 days.

I've always just ordered small items, but for those Canadians who have ordered big containers (5+lbs) of protein, did you get nailed on shipping/customs or was it the same as any other order?
In my experience Fedex has charges more consistently but they are usually about 15 bucks. USPS on the other hand doesn't charge me 3/4 of the time but the other 1/4 my items arrive two weeks late with 50 bucks of fees. Maybe I've just been unlucky but I always choose Fedex now.

Fedex almost always charges me, but it's never much. USPS is all over the place.

Luckily I live in the Niagara Region, so I rent an address in Niagara Falls, NY and drive over for my packages. I have an unbelievable amount of horror stories in terms of waiting for mailed packages, so I just ceased mailing altogether. At one point, I waited forty days for a single package.
