Shipping to USA from Canada

So, I want to send my friend my old phone from Canada to US. Just wondering is there a duty fee and if so can I avoid it.

If you are sending it you won't be subject to any fees anyway. As for your friend, they can look up US Customs import limits to see what their limits are. I recall though that it's relatively high.

This

It’s like any other Importation Customs & Duty

It’s only applied by the incoming country to the person the pkg is addressed to

yeah their duty free limit is like $200 - maybe even more for gifts. Make sure to send it small packet air tracked - comes with $100 insurance. Costs a bit more, but with Canada post's recent job action - I'm trusting nothing until a settlement is reached...
