Canada Post Next Day
International orders are shipped via Canada Post. Orders to the United States will be charged a standard $18 CAD with tracking. Overseas orders will be charged a standard $18 CAD shipping fee. International orders are not guaranteed to ship the next business day because additional verification is often necessary. Canada Post states that most shipments are delivered within 4-5 business days. However, some shipments may take up to 3 weeks to arrive. Please allow time for your package to clear customs. This may take from a couple of days to several weeks.
Customs Duties and Other Fees
Please note that shipping charges do not include taxes or duty. The customer is solely responsible for any customs, duties, foreign taxes or other fees that his/her country may impose to take delivery of his/her order. In order to comply with export regulations, we are required by law to declare the exact value of all items ordered and to mark them as dutiable “merchandise.” Declaring less than the true value is both a violation of Canadian law and the laws of most other countries. In addition, we could lose the right to export to your country should it ever be discovered that we were misrepresenting the value. Because we are a retailer, we are prohibited by law from marking your order as “gift,” even if the order is intended as a gift by its recipient. Call your local customs office for details about these charges.
If you are not satisfied with your online purchase, please follow our guidelines for returns:
- All returns must be postmarked within 14 days of receipt. Returns sent after this time will not be honored.
- The merchandise must be in its original condition and unworn.
- We do not refund shipping charges.
- We do not accept returns/exchanges on custom-made or special order items, undergarments, or sale merchandise. These types of sales are final.
- We are not responsible for damages that occur during care of an item, such as dry cleaning, washing or wear. Please be advised that items that do not conform to the above guidelines are not returnable. They will be returned to you at your expense.
If you receive an item that is defective, damaged or incorrect, you must notify us via email within 5 business days of receiving the merchandise. Please keep the original packaging materials in the case of damage. We will email you a label for returning the merchandise. A replacement will be sent, if available, upon receipt – with the condition that merchandise has not been worn or washed with all tags attached.
If you would like to exchange an item for another color or size, please contact us via email email@example.com to ensure that the new item is available.
