I recently ordered a Tamagotchi iD L off eBay for $70 with free shipping. Today, as I was reading through the item's description, I noticed the note about import and local taxes. I order things online all the time, and since I'm in Canada, most of the things I order are from the US. I've ordered a few expensive things (around $50+) from the US and the UK, but none of the packages required me to pay any taxes. I know that there are sellers who mark items as gifts rather than merchandise to get around this, but I can't remember if those sellers did that. Does anyone have any input/experience with the Tamagotchi iD L (or any other expensive Tamagotchi coming from Japan) to share?

My stuff from Japan never had customs taxes or duties to fufil. I buy from all over the world... And never had to pay taxes. I think that is mainly for labeled food, liquids and other specifyied items... But I doubt you will need to pay taxes on them. Many ebayers label items as gifts or worth less then you payed.

I'm from Canada and I didn't get charged with any taxes when I ordered my iD L. :)

Same. For both of my iD L's, I didn't have to pay any taxes, otherwise, my dad would've griped about it and told me that eBay sucks. xD

Thank you very much, everyone! Also, do the packages typically arrive at your door or in your mailbox? I do have a mailbox (shared with several houses on my street) that has a special compartment for larger packages, so that's no problem. Also, my package was sent by regular airmail. :)

It depends on your place since you seem to have a different mailbox system. In our place we only have one mailbox so the packages get delivered at the door. If there's no one around, the postman will just leave a package notice in the mailbox then I could claim it on the nearest post office when I get home.
