    I found a few companies in the US that I'd like to order liquid from. I just need some information before I go about doing so.

    In regards to importing via mail, and Canadian customs/postal service:
    Is there a limit on nicotine content?
    Is there a limit on quantity?
    Will I be taxed?
    What are the chances of my order getting seized, and/or sent back?
    Do american vendors offer free shipping for Canadians?
    What are your experiences in general?

    1. Legally any nic u import meets the legal dose requirement, depending on who is interpreting the law.

    2. Quantity wise, try to keep orders to what u can possibly lose dollar wise just in case. Otherwise your good to go.
    3. there is a possibility u could be charged duty depending on what u order.
    4. Vendors have a harder time with seizures then everyday consumers.
    5. No free shipping that I know of, unless u order from Fasttech. Please correct if wrong.
    6. I've read about some seizures so there is a chance, I've read about long delays but packages went through, personally I've had only one packet opened by cbsa but is was sent along to me with yellow tape on it without incidence.

    I mainly use Canadian vendors but do order every few months from the US.

    It can be a toss up unfortunatly. GL....

    Some of them allow you to ship it "canuck style" which means they send it under their own name instead of business name which allows for easier border crossing, keep your order under $50 and always ship usps and you shouldn't get duty charges, just contact them ahead of time most of them have experience shipping to Canada

    I've had cartomizers stopped once. No problems with bottled juice yet though.

    With US sites I just make a mock shopping cart and go through the checkout and I'm surprised on how many will ship to Canada for less than 10 bucks or free shipping. I've ordered lots of juice from JuiceMafia since they are free shipping over 30 bucks and have good sales on, they will alter the shipping label to "Essential Oils" rather than ecigs they had on my first shipment. I've got juices in less than 2 weeks and as long as a month it all depends on customs and if my package lands in Richmond (fast going through customs) or Mississauga (lost in limbo for up to 2 weeks) and Canada post sending it via wagon train across the country.

    Really solid idea for a thread, and great to hear some first hand experiences with customs. "Essential Oils", eh?

    I've been receiving Zamplebox for the states and so do a few of my friends, we never had any issues except 1 of my boxes got stuck for 15 days at customs, but it only happened once

    Ive had people buy juice for me and send it from their personal address with no problem. It was about 1000 worth of hardware and about 700 ml of juice and it went through no problem. (That was the biggest order) but if you get it smaller it should go through easy.
