Can anyone talk about any recent experience with shipping from the USA?

Just planning on ordering some items from America but was wondering if anyone had recently had anything shipped and how the experience was. Cost increases? Delays? Business as usual? Share it all.
If it’s not at least 50% off is it really a deal?

depends on the shipper. ups and fedex are pretty much the same if there is a delay its maybe 1 day over norm. usps and canada post though are much slower then the norm

There is of course the RFD MegaThread too on Mail Processing thru Canada Customs
mail-processing-canada-customs-slow-711375

Someone posts in that thread almost every day
Albeit it’s a thread dedicated to CBSA / Canada Customs Turn Arounds ... so items coming into Canada worldwide
But it does see a lot of RFDers posting about their recent US pkgs ... cuz they are still our biggest trade partner
And where many of us do tons of online shopping

NOTE - Canada Customs Rule’s on Couriers changed July 1st under the NEW USMCA Trade Agreement
So that could impact you far more than shipping via the post
(Although lots of reports that due to Covid ... both Canada Post & USPS are slower than they were so a year ago)
