If you are outside Canada there may be additional importation restrictions, procedures, and fees. It is your responsibility to research and comply with local laws.​


Customs Fees & Duties

Global shipping usually incurs import fees, rules, and customs procedures. If a fee or tax is required by your customs or postal carrier, it is your responsibility to fulfill the payment obligation.

We will not illegally declare a lower item value or mis-declare item codes.


A package may be held by customs for inspection and delayed up to several weeks. You may contact the courier and find out if anything can be done to expedite the process. Typically, they request additional information, for example what the product is, what it is for, how much it cost, a copy of the invoice or additional documentation. It is important your answers are consistent with our customs declaration.

Chargebacks & Payment Disputes


  • Chargebacks: Chargebacks by a credit card issuer or bounced check are taken seriously. As a matter of fraud protection any chargeback will result in the client being (temporarily) placed on the no-sell list until we can get in contact with you.

  • Payment Disputes: Please contact us first if you have a payment dispute because we can solve most problems faster than a bank or payment processor.​
