Has anyone in Canada ordered off of GameStop.com and paid more than the shipping to get it over the border? I've heard some companies get it to you but you end up paying more to receive the package when it gets to you.

I think he means he is ordering from the American site, because most likely if you are ordering from US to Canada, shipping would be more.

You are basically saying then that what you paid initially is what you paid period?

Yes, when I ordered NHL 13 from Gamestop.com, when I selected Canada from the drop down menu after it defaultes to the US, the shipping fee didn't change

Thanks for the info. I was worried that I would have to pay more when the guy brings my parcel to the door.

Just a heads-up, you might have to pay for the customs if your order is shipped from the US. Or at least that was my experience from a few years back.

It's not even customs I'm worried about. From what I read (posts were from 2008) GameStop uses ups. I am afraid of the bill ups will give for brokerage fees. I've heard of things a little as hot wheels cars or action figures costing folks an extra 30-50$ from ups.

I work for FedEx. Extra fees are customs / taxes.
Are you sure it's brokerage fees? I've never in 5 years seen brokerage fees paid for at the door.
If you arrange to pay the customs / hst prior you'll save UPS' surcharge, which is $20-30
