shipping

I am in the midst of a raok and have a request from someone in Canada and I have not shipped there before so wondering what the rules or law or any other problems there might be...

For any kind of international shipping, particularly of live things (plants, shrimps, fish, etc), you will need to ensure that the proper customs paperwork and any other declaration (quarantine, phytosanitary documentation, etc) is in proper order.

It's a bummer but I found shipping things as simple as temp controllers to just not fit . The cost was too much to make giving a controller away look good! A $15 item was going to cost $20 to ship!

Yeah the customs is hard, which is why I don't ship outside of US, I won't even ship to Alaska or Hawaii because of how far they are.
