How Long Will It Take To Get My Package?
Shipping time relies on the courier company/postal service, the service type chosen and various Canadian warehouse locations from which the items are shipped. Items from Canadian warehouses are shipped by expedited or express shipping (depending on the product size & weight) which take up to 2-6 business days whereas the regular Canada Post delivery service takes up to 8 business days.
Warehouses in China:
Items from our Chinese warehouses are shipped via “EMS International Expedited Air Parcel” which takes ONLY 10 business days (14 Calendar Days). Many shipments are surprisingly being delivered by Canada Post in ONLY 8-9 business days if there is no processing delay by Canada customs clearance at the Canadian borders. PLEASE NOTE that for the Chinese shipments, even though a vast majority of our products are not charged any extra duties and taxes by Canadian Customs, some items will be subject to import duties that must be paid by the buyer/receiver during delivery.
What Shipping Methods and Carriers Are Being Used?
All products are shipped either by ground or air depend on the weight, dimension, available carriers and warehouse locations in Canada. We mostly use UPS, Purolator, FedEx, Canpar, and Canada Post trackable regular, expedited and express services. Almost all orders are trackable and traceable.

How Do I Set My Shipping Address?
On the final checkout page, you will be given an option to choose shipping details.
How Do I Find A product?
Simply type in the keyword or phrase of the product that you’re looking for into the homepage or shop page search bar located on the top. You can also search for products by name or features, such as brand, artist, Manufacturer’s Part Number, SKU etc.
I am looking for a particular product department but it is not on the site’s category list.

How To Get Up To $10 Off On Each Additional Item In My Cart?
You pay the marked price for the 1st item in the cart but as soon as you add an additional item either from the same or a different category site-wide, $1 to $10 discount will automatically be applied on “each additional unit” added into the cart depending on the category and item.
Please note, there are only a handful of items in our entire store on which these discounts do not apply.
I Have Questions About The Details Of A Product.

Do I Have To Pay Sales Taxes, Customs Duties And Import Taxes?
Our business is registered in all Canadian provinces. Thousands of products are shipped from our Canadian warehouses, so you pay only GST/HST and PST depending on the province you are located in.
Warehouses in China:
The good news is that a vast majority of our products shipped from China are not being charged any extra duties and/or taxes by Canada customs clearance service but still, some random items are subject to import duties that must be paid by the buyers/receivers during Canada Post’s delivery. So, it is buyer’s / receiver’s responsibility to pay the imposed duties.
Now, if Canada Customs ever charges you taxes (GST/HST and PST), Canada Post will ask you to pay it during delivery. So, first, pay and collect your package, email us a copy of your CBSA charge breakdown notice that came with the package and your payment receipt from Canada Post, we will refund you the taxes you paid; No question asked!
Do I Pay EHF (Environmental Handling Fee) On Electronic Items?
Not all electronic items are subject to EHF. Each province has its own EHF rate whereas some provinces do not charge EHF at all. If your item has an applicable EHF, it will show up on the final checkout page.
I Only Received One Item, Where Is The Rest Of My Order?
There is nothing to worry about; the rest of your order is on the way! On numerous occasions, we need to ship items individually due to item availability in certain warehouses and numerous warehouse locations across Canada and China.
On the other hand, we also want our customers to receive their orders as soon as possible and we don’t want to retain the entire order to cause a delay in the shipment.

How Do I Track My Package?

Shipments from Canada can be tracked on the carrier website; just follow your shipment notification email.
Shipments from China sent via “EMS International Expedited Air Parcel” can be tracked by visiting any of these international shipment tracking services websites:
