Candles4less has negotiated with UPS a very attractive Brokerage
discount, lowering the total overall cost for our customers in Canada.
"Canada Customs requires Canadian
recipients to pay applicable duties and taxes on each shipment entering Canada.
These charges may include PST, GST, HST, duties and other taxes of goods (e.g.
excise tax). A brokerage fee is also charged to process shipments and present
the requisite customs paperwork to Canada Customs on the importer's behalf.
Your order will be shipped under UPS's e-Tailer Brokerage Program (eBP), where
eligible shipments imported into Canada for non-commercial purposes and valued
under CAD$ 200 shipped via UPS Standard service are subject to a reduced
brokerage fee of CAD$ 10, plus any applicable duties and taxes. Shipments
valued at CAD$200 and above and/or being imported to Canada for commercial
purposes and/or subject to specialized clearance may incur additional fees.
Please, be aware that UPS will request payment of these charges at the time of
delivery. You have the ability to call UPS ahead of time (1-800-742-5877)
