Canada Post guarantees 4-10 business days delivery by airmail to the USA. Canada varies by province and if you're international, please ask - we will send by airmail and there are delivery standards by country. If you prefer a faster service, you can also choose Xpresspost for Canada and USA shipments - these tend to take 1-3 business days to reach you and will vary by distance from Ontario. Expedited shipping within Canada is slightly faster than by Regular Parcel and will vary by your distance from Ontario. If you are in the USA and choose Expedited, shipping time will also vary by your distance from Ontario. If you would like details on delivery times for Expedited and Xpresspost, please don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com or use the Contact Us page found in the menu bar at the top of the page.
All small packet packages include insurance up to $100 for loss. If you would like additional insurance for your package, please contact us to make arrangements. We can only insure your package to the limit of $100 even if you purchase more than $100 worth of merchandise.
Items shipped within Canada are trackable through the Canada Post website. If your item ships by airmail to the USA or internationally, Canada Post does not offer tracking information. If it is shipped via Xpresspost or Expedited shipping to the USA or internationally, the shipment will be trackable through the Canada Post website. We cannot guarantee that Canada Post will update the tracking information.
Shipping rates will vary by weight of your order. Larger orders will be slightly more than ordering 1 or 2 items. All rates are calculated in real-time from Canada Post for the USA, Canada and international shipments. If the cart shows that your order weighs too much, please let us know so we can do a custom quote on shipping for you.
Shipments entering into the USA from Canada may be subject to duties or taxes which are the responsibility of the customer. Packages valued under $2000 should cross over without any fees associated with the shipment.
For countries other than the USA, we suggest you consult with your local Customs bureau or post office to find out the details of your country's importing rules. Rules will vary by country and the customer is responsible for paying all duties, taxes or fees that may be associated with your shipment.
