Charged an extra $36 CAD as COD for HD 58x! Anyone able to help?! Anyone else with the same issue?!

I just got an email today from Canada Post saying that I should pay $36 in cash since the shipper has asked for it (But why Massdrop?!). I barely saved enough to buy the headphones at the price shown on the drop + shipping which amounts to $216 CAD! I'm a university student who doesn't have much except for lunch money. I've already submitted a ticket which will hopefully get a response today. Anyone else with a fat COD on their parcel or it's just me?

I think it is about right. HD 58X is 150$ us which is about $200 Can. So the tax is 26$ + 10$ service charge. Sometimes I purchased small items such as Sunglasses, knifes, pens, and they went though without any charges. So good luck next time.

Thanks for the link, it's good to know that from this point on.

Gotta admit I was wrong, I had never bought items worth more than $20 from the US and hadn't realized that I would be paying taxes for the headphones. Massdrop, you had no responsibility for paying the tax but I suggest adding a clear notice (like "+ any applicable taxes and/or tariffs" near the price) on the drop page to prevent people paying more than they expected to have to pay. Thanks again for the great drop however and keep it up!
