  • Shipping a food product to Canada?

    Anyone successfully shipping a food product from the US to Canada? Years ago, we decided not to accept orders for shipment to Canada due to shipping costs and customs/duty/paperwork hassles, but I have not researched this issue in a long time. Anyone have a success story to share? Any new developments in this area? (FYI - we sell cocoa powder/mixes and chocolate).

    We have routinely sent orders of pet bird food to Canada -- have had no hassles whatsoever using USPS Priority Mail Intl.

      Thanks for the reply. I will look into that further and see how much similarity there is for shipping our respective products. Do you have to do any one-off paperwork for each order, or is it pretty much automated? And if someone orders birdseed (a food/agricultural product) versus a non-food item, do you do anything different on your end from a paperwork/declaration of content standpoint?

        All automated, brought from the 3dCart order into ShipStation and the customs form is pre-fiilled out. All I do is print, sign and send!

          We ship tea to Canada all the time with USPS International First Class using Shippingeasy. There is nothing different then with a US based order. (The label does look different as it has a customs form which is created automatically.)
