If it has a stated value of less than $200USD on the customs form there is no tax/duty payable, but it might well cost him more than the value of the part to bring it here. I've often wanted to buy inexpensive items on Amazon but the shipping has generally been exorbitant, so I have had to pass. I don't know about the Canadian postal service but I have ordered from the US using USPS and it has taken over three months for orders to arrive, and on a couple of occasions - it has never arrived because they offer no tracking outside the US.

I appreciate your good intentions - but it's probably not a practical option....and once he read your reply 'Canada' to his location question - I'm guessing that he lost interest.

But maybe send him a PM and see what he says.
Hey. I'm at Philippines. 1 usd is like 50 pesos. So we're talking about around 20k including Tax. I'd spend without a doubt for my bike but that's a bit pricey felas. I mean I already bought this cdi that won't work to begin with. I paid like around 13k thousand pesos or 100 dollars more or less for it. I'm working to have it replaced by the seller but I'm not sure if they'd replace it. It's surplus from Japan and still I paid that high. So I hope yall can see it from my end. I'd be spending twice either way.. but I'm hoping I could get more like hook up the second time around. But that's just me..

How difficult is it going to be for him to import the used part to the Philippine :unsure: I never sent anything there before, can I just mail it and he clears it through customs or is it going to get complicated?
Hi..it's not gonna be difficult per say. Unless it's a big box weighs a lot. It's easier to mail it and just have it bubble wrapped. It won't be a custom problem unless you'd sneak in some of that cookies and cream kush lol 馃槅 you guys can add me up at messenger thou. Josh la vina aguirre just in case. Sorry it took time to get back to you all with the messages. My mom.just got.back from new York. I did a lot of traveling and errands for the holidays etc...wishing you all a merry Christmas felas

First question I have is @bwayaguirre the same as @Durtysouth garage ?
Merry Christmas. We'll that's not gonna be much of a problem sending I guess.. I'm bot sure I understood you completely thou.. how much will i owe you?
" I was going to eat the cost" means it was only going to cost you a thank-you, but you never PM'd me a name and mailing address, or you might have had it for Christmas.
... or it could end up in the same place as Classic250's T-shirt
