Terms and Conditions
1. Transaction Fees
Transaction fees apply to online payments for added security, and to ensure Buyer's and Seller's protection. Payments can be made via credit card, bank transfer, or other methods. Transaction fees, averaging 3.5%, are applied to cover processing costs, and are passed on to the customer using this service. For payments under $1500, these fees remain more cost-effective than many bank transfers.
2. Taxes, Customs, and Duty Fees
2.1 Local Orders: Orders within the province of Québec, Canada, will incur TPS and TVQ charges, already included in the total.
2.2 Canadian Orders: All orders within Canada will be subject to TPS charges, already included in the total.
2.3 USA Orders and Customs Regulations: Orders to the USA are considered exports, thus not subject to taxes. Due to the Free Trade agreement, no customs fees or special taxes apply to our products manufactured in Canada. Generally, receivers aren't required to pay import duties or local taxes, though local sales tax might apply occasionally for orders under $10,000.
2.4 International Orders and Customs Regulations (excluding USA): International orders are also treated as exports, exempt from taxes. However, local sales tax imposed by your country's customs authority will be applicable. Businesses can usually deduct sales tax, while individuals need to pay local tax in addition to the item's price before shipment.
2.5 Russian Federation Orders and Regulations: Russian orders must be shipped to a business address due to Russian regulations. Shipping to personal addresses is prohibited and could result in return fees at the customer's expense. Ensure your business name and address are provided for smooth import. Individuals without a business address can't receive orders in Russia.
