Import duty for Canada prizes Answered

Morning,

I have just received an invoice for $18 from FEDEX for customs clearance into Canada for the Instructables prize pack (mug and stickers). This is a first for me and was wondering if any other contest winners have similar feedback or if there was something that I should be doing with FEDEX.

Cheers

From over the pond in old switzerland: We only pay import tax if value includung (!!) price of shipping is > 60$US.
Unfortunately, shippers like Fedex and the like are soo expensie here, it normally costs import tax even if the value of the item is 0.1$ due to the horrendous price of fedex-shipping. And then we pay around 25 CHF (around 22$US) minimum.

I live in BC too, not on the island though. I haven`t gotten any import duties for packages from instructables yet.
