How do I pay customs tax and duties when flying into Canada?

I'm flying back to Canada for the holidays, and bringing some Xmas gifts that will be over the $60 duty free gift limit. I presume that when I fill out the declaration, I'll be asked to pay duty.
Does anyone know how that works? Do I hand over cash (fortunately I do have some Canadian currency on me), swipe a credit card? Checked bags aren't even picked up until after you clear customs, so how does the customs officer verify my declaration?
It's kind of a silly question but I've never carried goods over the duty free limit before and like all border crossings I want things to go smoothly.
