    Does anyone know of a good source to purchase accessories for Palm/Treo in Canada. TreoCentral, Treonauts, Palm Store all have shipping costs that are prohibitive. For example, the Palm Canada Store offers the Palm Holster at $39.95 but the standard shipping (7-10 Business Days) is $18.16, which is absurd.

    Alas, no, I don't.

    However, I just yesterday received an the Palm Treo newsletter saying that accessories from their store will be shipped free for a limited time.

    I agree that the other on-line stores have prohibitive shipping. I just ordered a set of accessories from Treocentral and in addition to the US$20 shipping, I got dinged an additional CAD$12 for "Brokerage Fees" because they use UPS. If you ship by USPS, for example, they are much cheaper to begin with and there are no such brokerage fees. Alas, that option is not available.

    eBay, with USPS, and including shipping gets you a decent price for accessories. Worked for me so far.

    Yah, don't ship anything via UPS. Rip-Off.
    On topic, I have bought general electronic accessories of www.eforcity.com
    Got my car windshield mount there. extra stylus. and earbuds (before I purchased SAG). And other stuff for ipods, etc... They ship via USPS so pretty cheap. Check it out!

    We are opening a Canada warehouse in late January, which will ship using Canadian Mail.

    Another vote for eforcity, and YAY to TC for opening a Canadian operation! Woo! Looking forward to that.

    That's GREAT news! I always hate UPS or Fedex. Major scam with their brokerage fees. I will definitely check it out. I want that Enfora Wi-Fi sled and hate paying way too much for the shipping and brokerage fees.

    Marcus:

    Any updates on Canadian Warehouse ETA?

    I'm looking at this case Smartphone Experts UltraSlim BookCase (Black / Leather Interior) for Treo 680 for $29.95US but the shipping from the States is $20.95US (that's about $38 million Canadian )...

    I guess I won't hold my breath on this. I finally went and bought the Enfora Wi-Fi sled from Palm instead and paid for a cheaper brokerage fee (compared to UPS) charged by Purolator. No one else sells them anymore as they've been discontinued. $12 for brokerage fee is cheap. I normally pay $29.95 or something close to that for UPS shipments. What a rip off. That's in addition to the shipping cost plus having to pay GST and PST on that brokerage fee really steams me.

    I have a feeling that they've abandoned this altogether.

    have on good authority , they're waiting for fix to 700P on Telus &/or Bell to expand market potential

    Was hoping this would happen - shipping costs to Canada at most sites including TC are just killers equalling or exceeding the product cost
