The $5 fee is for the Thailand transhipper. Most Aquabid ads will say there is a $5 per fish fee for each fish to be sent to the transhipper in Thailand who then sends the fish to the transhipper in the destination country (in our case, Hung Pham in Canada). Personally, I have found that quite a few of the sellers will not end up charging that fee even though their listing may have said they will. Just depends on the seller.....so you still have to be prepared to pay it.
I thought it was strange that he only said 6 fish, I'm not going to be ordering anywhere near 6 fish this time though so I'm not going to worry about that right now haha.
What postal service do you use to have your fish delivered?
I definitely want to see if I can get the seller to have the fish in the next shipment as I really don't want to wait another 2 weeks, but I'm worried they won't want to do that as I've never bought from them before or something.
So far for the costs I have:
Price of fish (hopefully $20)
Importing fee ($10/fish)
The cost of the box? ($5) Or is this included in the Canada Post fee?
Heat Packs if needed which I'm not sure if they are or not. (~$4?)
And I was thinking that since I'm buying one fish and paying the shipping, I might as well buy another as well hehe I just can't decide which other one I want.. I'm thinking of getting another female though.
