My copy of South Park just was shipped too.

And I'm still pretty sure I'll get both Fire Emblem Warriors and Super Mario Odyssey late.

Seriously, what's wrong with Nintendo products always being late with Amazon?!

I heard it was good, but for me it will take a lot to beat out Baby Driver for my favourite film of 2017.

Super weird.

Same for me, odd. Although it won't get here until Wednesday because it shipped from BC and I paid for day 1 delivery. Thanks Amazon. I can't be too salty though so since it glitched and I was only charged $11 for it, but it's my final Amazon order so I'm glad to be finally done with them.

Baby Driver was my favourite until Blade Runner 2049. Trust me it deserves to be seen on the big screen.

I knew there had to be something. Irritating if we've missed it, but yes, hopefully something similarly good will come along.

Prey PS4 is 39.99 (40% off) at Amazon if you are interested in picking it up during this packed month.

Or you could wait for hopefully a bigger sale by Christmas. I want it for Christmas, so hoping my family can find it at a deal like this around xmas.

Random question: I'm trying to calculate import fees on an item I want to buy through ebay. Is there a percentage I should be aware of when it comes to what they'll charge me?

Lately, ebay actually posts the import fees on the auction so I pay them up front. But for some reason that's not the case for this particular listing, so I'd like to know in advance what they're going to hit me with when it comes to customs/duty...


thanks in advance friends :)

If the seller is US and has permitted his item to be sold via eBay's Global Shipping Program then you can pay the Canadian taxes/import fees in advance without extra fees. Not all US sellers have this option though.

If it's a non-American seller or one not using the Global Shipping Program, and the declared value is above $20, then you will normally pay local taxes plus a handling fee which I believe is $10 via Canada Post. Local tax should depend on your province.

It is however not certain that your package will be inspected at the border and you might get away with paying nothing extra if it's shipped via Canada Post. From my experience, anything in a small padded envelope normally just slips through without inspection while large boxes will often get inspected and you will be charged the $10 plus local tax. I've probably bought a hundred US games shipped in padded envelopes in my life and never paid extra for a single one. If the item is in a box however then it will happen "sometimes".

If the item has a declared value of below $20 then you never have to pay.

Other couriers than Canada Post are from my experience very likely to charge import fees.

Tl;dr: expect $10 plus local tax but don't be surprised if small items slip through without any extra charge.

I'm sure it would work well, I have about a dozen Mayflash adapters for various systems and they all work perfectly.

IF it's shipped via Canada Post. If for some reason your seller decides to use UPS or DHL (and probably all the other couriers as well but those two in particular), the chance exists for the costs to be much, much, MUCH higher. So make sure your seller uses USPS or whatever their local postal service is.

Haven't bought a digital game on the switch from a different region yet, Will this redeem on the NA eshop? or should I just switch my region to JP redeem then switch it back

The latter, switch region, redeem code and then switch it back, it's really simple to do.

Tempted, but the controller is wired only. Plus I'm not sure what I'd do with two extra docks.
