This is ebay.com... so it is at least 240$ CA + import fees.

Thats a big bet for a phone that had so much clones

EBay was so useful for international buying and this killed the point of savings. EBay seriously lost me a customer with those forced import charges and made Amazon my goto online service.

"This is a B+ Stock item, meaning unit is in good cosmetic condition and may have minor scrapes or scratches since it's been handled"

Really wish they were more specific. I don't care about body issues as I case on phones immediately but screen scratches are a major annoyance and irritation.

You pay the same charges on Amazon. The "import charge" is just tax

Exactly! specially when you buy a second hand/refurbished device it really hurts to pay import taxes!! as if we don't already pay enough(40%income + property tax + 13% on everything you purchase)

Not always for some reason... 70/30 get charged tax on Amazon orders. But you're right! I didn't make the connection that the import charge was tax thanks

The import fee is your sales tax. It's not an additional fee at all. It just didn't used to be charged automatically by eBay, and instead you risked just getting hit with it at customs.

It's their global shipping program, in any case I prefer to see the charges upfront than get dinged by UPS at the door. Makes my decision to buy easy.

Back then the way of the buddy system was asking the USA/UK seller if they can write and mark it as 'GIFT' when sending at the post office. They had no problem doing it since it doesn't affect them and just a checkmark. But I was never charged with custom fees from 2002/3-2014 and not sure if that was what did it (as getting custom charges was 50/50 pretty much) but it always worked Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I disagree. Before ebay implemented their global shipping program, most US sellers wouldn't even ship to canada. It was always so frustrating being locked out of deals when the seller would just refuse to ship to canada. Or worse, they would ship and I would be dinged with huge brokerage fees. This way, I can see thee total cost upfront and not have to worry about it. Even when things were sent canada post, I would pay tax on it 9/10 times. Usually anything over $20 I would get the bill and have to pay it at my door.

Picked up one of these a while ago. eBay seller toronto.cellular was fast, cheap and phone was indistinguishable from brand new, just super crappy cardboard packaging. Seemed to have tons of them.

Only catch is that it's Verizon tuned, so native VoLTE features are disabled and Samsung Pay doesn't work because it thinks you're in the US.
