I am from Toronto, Canada. I have had horrible experiences with ordering from american based sites because i have to pay big fees when i pick it up at the post office. I am just wondering how i can calculate these fees and anticipate how to calculate them into my budget.

try doing a bit of research with your own post office or customs websites.... they generally have that kind of info.

but from the TS site....

The figures in these links are subject to change and it is the responsibility of the Purchaser to consult with the customs authorities of the importing nations to confirm their accuracy.

For anyone viewing this post in the future this is a good website to calculate fees for canadian shipping. In addition Companies that ship USPS is usually cheaper and you may or may not be charged tax/duty.

Freaking guy barely knocks, then l waited maybe 5sec to see if it was accident or what not. Go outside to find my keruig machine sitting in the middle of the hallway

Sorry if this response comes a bit late but hope this helps.  I too live in Toronto, Ontario and have ordered many times from here (Sierra days).  In my experience, I've always had to pay customs and brokerage at Fedex when picking up my parcels.  What I've calculated is basically a 1.25x factor.  Whatever I paid total here (USD), I would multiply by 1.25x and after all the charges, exchange rate, taxes, customs and brokerage fees, that's the total in CAD I ended up paying for my order.  It's a bit of an overestimate but it worked out pretty close for me in the past.  It's probably a bit better now with the better exchange rate.
