    i've never had to pay it from ordering through the states tho....unless it's from a store, then you may have to pay.

    If send via UPS they charge an automatic $35.00 brokerage fee for clearing customs for you.
    Then you will have to pay the customs duties and taxes. This depends on the commodity

    The seller should give you the total, as he/she has to pay it upfront, generally they check it out and tell you the full cost.
    and as it's used it'll be no taxes or duties (at least that's my experience)

    you could try going to www.usps.com which is the United States Postal service web site

    See if you can get rate info there
