    Why are you ordering something from Amazon Canada if you're in the US?

    As for your question, no idea, never ordered from their C site, just the US one.

    Depending on your bank, your credit card statement should likely display the following: the total (in CDN funds), the exchange rate (on the date your order was entered), a processing fee applied by your financial institution (sometimes a flat fee, others charge a percentage of the total) and the final total (in US funds) which you're responsible for.

    The total on Amazon Canada's site will likely be displayed in CDN funds. I have never ordered from AC, but I have from other Canadian e-tailers, so the AC shopping experience may/may not be much different.

    My experience with them is in the Retail/Vendor Feedback forum. Would use them again in a heartbeat!

    I use the currency exchange rate calculator on USAToday.com, located on the "front page" of the Money section.

    I bought Ginger Snaps I and II from them, also they had a killer price on the Scarface box set, so I got that too.
    I have also ordered from Australia, Italy, UK, Korea, and Hong Kong, always gets correct amounts, although I have a card that charges for the conversion.

    I've ordered from them a few times (some titles that are not available in the US, such as the season sets of the BBC America sitcom TRAILER PARK BOYS which is hysterical).

    The only problem I have, I normally upgrade to the secondary shipping and with that, you have to sign for the package, they won't leave it at your door (like Amazon US and UK do). So, you have to go to the post office to pick it up. Which is a hassle.

    Do they do that will all the shipping?
