Canadian where to buy.
I am looking to get a pfsense box however netgate has high shipping rates and then I have to pay duties and the poor exchange rate. There is one Canadian website that sells corpshadow.biz they how ever don't carry the sg2220. Any suggestions on alternative?
Looking to run Suricata along with squid. With all the changes coming I want to be ready. Looking to spend no more then 300CND

I am in Canada, and just took delivery of a SG-2440 directly from Netgate. I can tell you exactly what I paid, and the problem is our exchange rate. Not anything Netgate can do about that.
The SG-2440 was 549.00 plus 36.84 shipping. Total $585.84 USD.
In Canada Dollars:
American Express for the Invoice: $812.22
UPS Broker Fee: $10.00
Note there is no Duty, and I get the HST back as a business.. Netgate ships premium UPS so the brokerage is only $10, very reasonable.
Edit: So I don't think you will find a SG-2440 for less than $822.22CAD delivered in Canada unless the exchange rates gets better. Please let me know if you do.
We are a Canadian Netgate partner. We are stocking SG-1100, SG-3100, and SG-5100 models.

Finally. I've complained in the past that the Canadian resellers are basically just VARs that have no interest in selling Netgate units unless they're part of a larger solution.
I'm looking to buy a SG-1100
It's not available on Amazon.ca (or I don't know how to look??)
I checked the link: https://www.netgate.com/partners/locator.html#canada and took out VAR and MSP, to only get the resellers, checked all websites, and it's impossible to buy online.
Then I called two and they basically told be that really they are VAR partners so they will not just sell me a SG-1100, I need to do business with then for other services and stuff, and maybe within the solution they propose they will include a SG-1100.
Anyway... any idea where I can find a SG-1100 to buy and get shipped in Canada ?

Did you try Weehooey? They posted here and I would think they would sell you a unit.
Ooops ! I just saw the post from @weehooey !
From Netgate directly it's $159 USD
Exchange rate is 1.33 so roughly $211,47 CAD
On your site its $259 CAD
Well I guess I'm saving shipping and customs and stuff so alright, I'll order from you guys!
By the way @weehooey you're listed as VAR and MSP on https://www.netgate.com/partners/locator.html#canada
You should definitely make sure you're listed as reseller too, so others (like me) who search for resellers, will find you.
Hey thx KOM!
BlazeStar, thanks for the heads up. I’ll get our partner manager to update our listing. And, thx for the order. We will get it out tomorrow morning.
