Cross-border shopping has long been a rite of passage in Canada, but online shopping also has U.S. consumers increasingly looking for bargains abroad. According to a 2018 survey by PayPal and Ipsos, about a third of U.S. consumers have made online purchases from other countries, looking not only for better prices but also products that aren't available in the United States. According to a 2018 article in The Atlantic, some experts think sites like Wish.com — which offers deeply discounted goods shipped from China — "represent the future of shopping." It seems the lure of $2 pillows, a $3 pineapple corer, and an $11 garden hose is just too much to resist for some bargain hunters. While cross-border online shopping is a common practice, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and retail experts warn it isn't necessarily simple. So, if international ecommerce is singing its siren song of savings to you, here's how to shop foreign websites without running afoul of regulations and scams.
