Happy to ship to Canadia. There is a weight sweet spot on quantity. Send a real email to order and discuss terms. Australia is an issue as well. Also happy to be paid after delivery.

Are there Bank of America branches in Canada?

Also, the shipping vent wasn't about you, it was someone else who had shipped to me recently.
Again, sorry to make that sound bad or seem like I aimed that you, or anyone else on the forum.

I've got riding buddies in Canada and both new and used bike parts can be a pain to get at a reasonable cost. I understand your frustration.

I recently got screwed out of a UPS shipment (was requested by USPS) and I was charged an import fee of $106 CAD based on goods valued at $180 CAD.



Yeah, I had to learn that through bitter experience too. NEVER allow a seller to ship to Canada by UPS.............what a rip! Before I'll do that, I'll cancel my order.

I looked online, the only I could find on that is an office in Toronto, but no branches.
TD(Toronto Dominion) has been in the US for quite a few years now. US Headquarters are in South Carolina, with over 1200 branches throughout the US.

I think Paypal is one of the lowest cost popular facilities for foreign exchange. I seem to recall researching another one for larger transactions. Maybe bitcoin or something.
