Online Tape Stock in Canada?
 
Hi there,

I'm looking for a cheap place to buy miniDV tape stock in Canada (specifically Sony Premium tapes). The dvinfo sponsors are great, but I don't want to have to deal with money conversions and duty charges.

Any suggestions?

I use eBay, which is a little tricky. The seller I use is "getthebestdeals".
Sample auction

Be sure:
1- Seller ships USPS, NOT UPS Ground, NOT Fedex Int'l economy. This is to avoid daylight robbery brokerage fees. USPS charges $5 or $8 depending on speed.
2- You will need to pay:
no duties on mini-DV tape
PST + GST
$5/$8 handling fee (brokerage) with USPS
in cash, exact change, when the mailman delivers your parcel

Pay with Paypal/credit card.

I would also ask the seller for more details, like if they had any complaints from customers in your city/province.
