What Taxes Do I Pay?
If you’re outside Canada, you won’t be charged any sales tax. However, there may be import duties that your own country charges to be paid when your purchase arrives. These are usually at the discretion of the customs agent dealing with your purchase, so we’re unable to say for certain what they will be, but are usually 10% at the most.
If you’re inside British Columbia, you will be charged 5% GST (Goods and Services Tax) and 7% PST (Provincial Sales Tax).
If you’re located in a Canadian province that has HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) then you will be charged your province’s HST rate.
If you are shipping to a non-HST province then you will only be charged 5% GST.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping prices are tailored specifically to the items ordered, with prices varying depending on size and weight. The “Additional Information” tab on each item contains these measurements, which include packaging. There will be a variety of shipping options on the checkout page from which to choose.
How long will my order take to arrive?
Canada Post does have guaranteed delivery times on some of their shipping methods, and those will be shown on the checkout page.
The other methods aren’t guaranteed to arrive on a specific day, but the more expensive methods will generally arrive sooner.
Here is a list of the approximate delivery times for different mailing options. A “T” denotes that the shipping method includes tracking.
These are in business days, so weekends and holidays will need to be accounted for:
