Learn the Secrets to Having Your GOAT Orders Delivered to Canada

Buying from GOAT and having it shipped to Canada was a pain in the past, but not anymore. With the steps outlined in this post, you can have your GOAT order delivered to your Canadian doorstep (or the doorstep of any other retailer that doesn't ship to Canada) with zero hassle and minimal fees.

The secret is to utilize Planet Express, a package forwarding service, which will take your US-based order and deliver it to you in Canada. This method functions effectively from any country of origin.

As GOAT does not offer direct shipping to Canada, you will need to employ the services of a package forwarder, such as Planet Express, to have your purchase delivered. Follow the steps below to have your GOAT purchase delivered to Canada in a matter of days.

GOAT is the largest sneaker resale marketplace, and they sell more than 30,000 pairs of authentic shoes on their website and mobile app. Additionally, they provide professionally cleaned, like-new secondhand footwear through their GOAT Clean program. GOAT has been operating since 2015, and its headquarters can be found in Culver City, California.

Is Canada Included In GOAT's Shipping Area?

Although GOAT does not officially support international shipping to Canada, I've devised a foolproof plan to ensure that any Canadian order can be fulfilled.

You can have your GOAT order shipped to you in Canada by making use of a package forwarder, which is a warehouse in the United States.

Here is the method in its entirety:

When You Want Your GOAT Order Sent To Canada, Here's What You Do

The First Step Is to Select a Package Forwarder

The time it takes to receive your package and the amount you will be charged depend heavily on the package forwarding service you choose. I dug into fourteen top virtual mailboxes, giving each a score based on a variety of criteria, and spent a lot of time doing so. Here are the five most important metrics I considered:

  • What are their rates for accepting and transporting packages, as well as for related services like long-term storage, re-packing, package consolidation, and so on?
  • What are the recurring costs, if any, including monthly and yearly rates?
  • How much do I know about their pricing structure before I send my order to their warehouse?
  • How quickly can I expect my package to be processed?
  • How happy were other customers with the service they received, and how fast and in-depth were the answers to their questions?

By analyzing the information I gathered on these and other criteria, I concluded that Planet Express was the most qualified candidate for this position. Compared to the other package forwarders I researched, their prices were consistently lower, their customer service team responded quickly to my emails, and they have thousands of positive online reviews.

  • In the past decade, I've made eight different international moves, so I understand the hassle of having packages shipped to far-flung locations.
  • My recommendations are well-supported by data from various sources, such as the experiences of other travelers, Amazon customers, and business owners operating in international markets.
  • When preparing this post, I signed up for 14 different mail services and actually used them to send packages.

Here are a few more of Planet Express' qualities that I appreciate:

  • Orders placed with Planet Express can be shipped tax-free thanks to their Oregon warehouse.
  • When you make multiple purchases, Planet Express will combine them all into one box and ship it to you at a discounted rate.
  • Once your package has arrived at the Planet Express facility, you will receive free email updates with photos of its progress.
  • Package storage at Planet Express is incredibly affordable. Planet Express stores packages for free for the first 10 days, and then charges only one cent per pound per day after that. That means it doesn't cost them a dime to keep a package weighing 1 pound in their warehouse for a whole month. 30

The Second Step: Deliver Your Purchase to Planet Express

When you sign up for Planet Express, they'll give you a special address to use for sending packages to their facility. When you've settled on a purchase, you can quickly send it to your Planet Express warehouse by entering that address instead of your regular home address.  

Using Planet Express' distribution center address as your billing address should work just as well if you're unable to use your own residential address.

Send It On Its Way

You'll get an email with a photo of your package as soon as it arrives at Planet Express' distribution center. There will be a variety of shipping options presented to you.

From my experience, there are typically four shipping options, each of which offers a unique price and delivery time. Depending on the size, value, and weight of your package, you may have as many as ten different shipping options to choose from.

True Story

More than a dozen times I've used Planet Express to ship packages all over the world, and each time has been a breeze. In retrospect, this is how it played out:

The order was initially delivered to a specific address at the Planet Express distribution center. Very quickly, in less than 48 hours, I received an email from Planet Express stating that my shipment had arrived.

The second step was to fill out the simple customs declaration form provided by Planet Express, which asked for the following four pieces of information:

  1. What's being sent
  2. The quantity of goods being shipped
  3. The worth of the item
  4. Whether or not batteries are included

The third step was picking a delivery method from a menu of 8. There was a wide price range (from to $35 USD) and insurance cost an additional $2 USD, so I went with the cheapest option (a total of USD). Later that day, my package was sent out, and when it arrived, everything was undamaged.

Customs and Duties Fees

From my research and personal experience, the price I paid ( USD + $2 USD in insurance) is fairly typical for sending packages to Canada. Also, as of July 1, 2020, Canadians can import up to $150 CAD worth of goods from the US or Mexico duty-free under the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Compared to the previous threshold ($20 CAD), this is a significant increase, and it likely means that you will no longer be required to pay customs or duties on any of your imports.

In the event that your order totals more than $150 CAD, the customs duty that will be applied is detailed in the following table.

In Summary

It's a breeze to have GOAT products shipped to Canada. The prices are reasonable, and in my experience, you'll end up saving money by purchasing from GOAT directly rather than from a middleman. This strategy should work great for you if you're shopping at GOAT or any other US-based store that doesn't offer Canadian shipping.
