I just received a package from amazon.uk delivers with Royal mail and Canada post charged me 15$ of customs duties... First time after at less 8 ordres. I was thinking that post Canada don't charged custom.

if u accepted the package and opened it ur kinda out of luck then. u would have to return it to amazon at your own cost.

my suggestion to everyone is set up a canada post flex delivery account and when u order from amazon.co.uk have ur package sent to there as they will have to use royal mail. not sure if the same things are happening with amazon.de i havent had them do this yet but its been a while sense i ordered off amazon.de.
i didnt accept the package they said pay online the duty they would bring it in a few days
but the duty makes the items not worth it
so ill just refuse it thanks


and what is flex delivery and is it free?

It might depend on where the package entered Customs in Canada. I suppose some places could be more fussy, less busy, or whatever processing variables affect it.

I also order stuff, whenever possible, such that it won't need to be mailed in a box. For regular BDs, I order in twos, because two fit in a standard flat cardboard envelope. Sure this costs a few bucks extra than ordering a bunch at once, but it's kind of "insurance" to me in that it'll come to my mailbox (instead of maybe the P.O.), it'll come faster, and it'll most likely escape Customs scrutiny...compared to a larger box. No guarantees, but it's been working so far... I also haven't had any single boxed sets dinged, and now that I think of it, they tend to have a cardboard wrapper these days rather than a small box.

ya id give dhl a call and let them know u dont want it and to send it back just to be sure they dont try to be sneaky and bring the package and leave it in your mail box or something and then mail u an invoice latter.

https://www.canadapost.ca/web/en/pag...rl|pdn|nr|1702

basically u make an account pick the post office u want your package to go to then canada post gives u an p.o box address for that post office. yes its free. it forces companies to ship by there post office as ups/dhl/fedex wont be able to bring the package to there. canada post will send u an email when they get the package just bring in a photo id and u pick it up. u can pick any post office to so u can pick the closest one to home work anywhere.

Region: Region B/2

I think I read somewhere that it is region free. Most Disney releases lately have been.
1. "Serve the public trust"
2. "Protect the innocent"
3. "Uphold the law"

The only way anyone would know for certain that is the case is by evidence of someone saying "this exact disc and box specifies region free" by first hand knowledge. Even browsing the UK Gotg2 section of this forum brings no such proof, just the same conjecture that Disney does not region lock their releases. I do believe previous business practice can change, depending upon how Disney treats the UK market. As well, i thought this site was usually accurate in their database, but they specify region b as well.

You can't blame someone for believing a listing, or questioning it, sometimes that's all we have to go by, if not anything but to avoid he headache of int'l returns.

Default Preorders region-free?

I noticed that amazon.co.uk has most of their pre-orders priced at £12.49 once VAT is removed. With the current exchange rate, this is a lot cheaper for titles like Wonder Woman and Spider-man Homecoming than amazon.ca has. Do you think it's safe to assume that all of the new titles should be region-free? Do any of the studios still do region locking?

I got hit with tax because they delivered via UPS this week. A person in another forum told me the trick about using Canada Post flex delivery (where you make an account, generate an address, and can have things mailed to your post office). Hopefully that avoids the fee's in the future. My tax was only 4.88 owed, but $10+gst for the assessment

Amazon UK has the same Disney multi-buy as Zavvi on right now:

2 Blu-rays for 15GBP / 2 3D Blu-rays for 18GBP

Moana and Beauty and the Beast (live action) are included this time around

As usual, the Marvel titles are NOT included.

Decided to cancel my pre-order of A Fish Called Wanda at Amazon Canada and re-order from Amazon UK. Even with shipping and exchange rate, it's about $10 cheaper than ordering from Canada.

^ Yup. But it's Region B, if that matters. Finally, a decent release of AFCW, took way too long.

Be careful about ordering from Amazon.co.uk. These days, a lot of regular orders are being shipped with UPS. Even at £12.49, you will get charged for custom fees as well as UPS brokerage fees. I hope that they fix that problem soon...

All my orders have been sent via regular mail, but the shipping address I use with Amazon is listed as a PO Box. (I am in an apartment, with postal boxes only accessible to Canada Post)

u can also sign up for flex delivery https://www.canadapost.ca/web/en/pag...rl|pdn|nr|1702 free p.o at any postal outlet. then theres no chance they ship with ups. service is 100% free just bring ur id when u go to pick it up.

i been using this scents they did a random upgrade on a package a month ago. ups wanted $18 in tax/fees for a 12.49 pound item. i told ups to send it back and re ordered it to flex delivery they shipped it by royal mail instead.

Nope. All of Arrow Video's concurrent UK-North American releases are Region A & B compatible. Apart from the ratings logos and other minor cosmetic differences, they are exactly the same package.

I've been ordering from Amazon UK for a long time, as well as Amazon France, Germany and Italy. My most recent order was less than a month ago. All of my orders from these various sites are always sent via Royal Mail from the distribution centre in Dunfermline, Scotland.
