The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Esprit and have the package shipped to Canada. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Esprit Online Store to Canada
To ship internationally, Esprit requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.
They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Esprit store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

The freight forwarder accepts the package on your behalf.
Once the package is received, the freight forwarder will ship the package directly to you in Canada.
If you have several packages, MyUS can bundle the packages into one order. That way you’ll receive all of your items together instead of one at a time.
The benefit of this service is you can order from anywhere in the United States and get your items shipped to Canada.
