okay say my friend gets that Ipod and wants to ship it to me. How much will it cost because my brother says its gonna be quite a bit due to customs because it crosses the border.

Try this:

 

If that doesn’t work than maybe FedEx has a similar calculator.

DO NOT ship a package like that from the US to Canada via UPS (and probably FedEx too). The will charge you VERY large fees to take the package through customs for you, in addition to the customs fees/duties/whatever. There is a way for you to take the package through customs yourself, however i dont have the link anymore (but you can probably find it if you google). Your best bet would be through the USPS (United States Postal Service), it will be the cheapest, and if you have to pay any customs fees, that will be it. No additional charges. You can be creative on the customs tag, but there is a chance that it will get opened anyways (especially if it a big box) and they may not be to happy about it. However, I dont think there is anything they can do about it, so it is probably an acceptable risk.
