Q.   Can I pay in Canadian currency?

Please contact us for options.


Q.  Will I be charged a foreign transaction fee?

Possibly. If your business is located outside the United States, your credit card company might charge you a foreign transaction fee (likely 1-3%) on top of the currency exchange rate. This usually shows up as a separate charge on your statement. We recommend you check with your credit card company on this question.


Q.  Is there duty charged on books shipped to Canada?

Not if you buy through our store. We do charge and collect the 5% GST (tax) and take care of all brokerage fees on all orders shipped to Canada (there is no provincial tax on books). By employing this method, we avoid the need for you to pay the GST and extra fees when your books arrive. For the United Kingdom, the VAT for books is 0%.


Q.  If we pay and are invoiced in US dollars, how can we calculate the GST in Canadian dollars for our records?

The easiest way is to look at your credit card statement. Take the transaction amount (T) in Canadian dollars, and use this equation: GST = T x 0.04762 (round to the nearest cent).


Q.  How is my credit card information kept secure?

We do not store your credit card information after processing your order. Click on "Contact us" for more information on how to order bulk copies.
