If reshippers weren't required to collect GST on the items they purchase for you then every e-tailer with a brain would just open up front end sites for you to order from so you could order from them indirectly and they wouldn't have to collect any GST beyond what they'd need from the shipping and handling fees

Yes that's the general idea. Sounds good to me

Randomly ordered something from Mandarake (non-transformer FWIW), and they just marked the package as a gift.

Had another order from Amiami. Looks like they switched to only charging GST to the items itself, not postage.

I can' help you there as I don't have/use a US reshipper.

Heard ordinary reviews for Shopmate. Member Sinnertwin was our giunea pig when Shopmate hit the scene. Whatever happened to that guy?...

I've only used Shipito for US forwarding and Tenso for Japan forwarding.
They both do what I need them to which is forward parcels, allow me to fill out the customs declaration, consolidate, add/remove packing/items, and give me multiple options for mail out.
I've seen people say myMallBox is also good, but I have no experience with them and while their free consolidation is appealing their shipping calculator seems to indicate that you'd pay more for shipping with less carrier options then Shipito, so I'm unsure if that "free" consolidation is really worthwhile.
