First time importing, should I hire a customs broker?

Main Internet Marketing Discussion Forum - www.warriorforum.com
Hey all,

First time importing and hoping those with experience can help with some advice.

Will be importing a light weight product from Alibaba to try out on amazon FBA.

I live in Canada and want to sell the item on Amazon FBA in the US. The product is very simple, after ordering a sample to check quality is it possible to ship the order directly to amazon or would it be a huge risk?

Importing into Canada would mean paying import fee's in both Canada and the US plus expensive Canadian shipping afterwards.

The first order will only be for between $250-$500 would this be worth getting a customs broker for and if so on a small order like this how much does that normally cost? Without a customs broker is it possible to just pay import duties online or by phone since I will be in Canada and it's getting imported into the us?

Thanks for reading
