Last week I was excited to learn that the Onion store shipped internationally. It was also appreciated that there was a 2-Bullet Tuesday discount. I ordered a dock and some proto expansions, but I was a little disappointed that for a $24 USD order that shipping was $15 USD (to Canada). If I had ordered just the $15 worth of proto expansions then the shipping would have been only slightly cheaper.
I received the package yesterday, on a holiday. A pleasant surprise! What wasn't so pleasant was the $16 USD in duty charges from DHL. Yep, DHL.
It's unreal that had I purchased $15 in proto expansions, I would have had to pay about $15 in shipping, and then $15 in duty. 3 times the original cost.
So while it's nice that there is now international shipping. Beware of duty/brokerage charges on your end. This cost is NOT reflected on your receipt from onion.
