Hey all, I purchased a bass from a Canadian seller (I'm in the US) not too long ago. We haggled a bit on price, and we agreed on a price of $1100 shipped. He got the bass out to me quickly, it was as-advertised, and all seemed well, so I left him positive feedback. However, about a week later, I got a bill from UPS for $71 for "customs and brokerage" fees. Now, I've sold more than a few items overseas, to Canada, etc, and I'm always very up front with "buyer pays ALL shipping and customs fees" so there's no confusion with who owes what (at least on my end). I've also bought my fair share of items from Canada, and when the seller says "$X shipped", it's generally been understood that the price includes the brokerage/customs fees. My question for the collective is, who's on the hook for these fees? I say that the seller is, but he's saying that I am because "he (the seller) always pays his own brokerage when buying from the US". My understanding is that "shipped" means "all fees included", but perhaps I'm wrong. Anyone care to chime in with their experiences/expectations?
