In my experience, it's really a hit or miss. In the 5+ years I've bought stuff online, I was only charged duties once. It really depends on who they ship with. If it is UPS ground, stay far far away! They have brokerage fees as well as custom fees. That's usually who the horror stories are about. If they ship with USPS, that's the best. It transfers to our Canada Post. For those, that was me getting charged duties once. Sometimes you have to pay a $5-$10 fee for their handling fees. Sometimes you'll have to pay tax (but that is determined by which province you're in). The only times you have to pay for duties is if the item is not made in North America (NAFTA).
I hope I made enough sense! haha I just kind of typed in what came into my head.
