The Audiophile Store


CALCULATING SHIPPING COSTS

IMPORTANT: the shipping costs shown here apply only to recordings and audio accessories from The Audiophile Store. No shipping cost is applied to magazines, books and subscriptions.

     Shipping cost at The Audiophile Store is based on the pretax value, in Canadian dollars, of the total order. The shipping cost is also calculated in Canadian dollars. Don't include the amount of any sales taxes for the calculated value. On the other hand, in Canada shipping costs are subject to salex tax, like everything else.

EXAMPLE 1: In Canada, sales taxes apply to the shipping cost as well as the cost of merchandise. Outside Canada no tax is added. In some countries, taxes or import duty may apply. On packages to the US this almost never happens, but some countries are more stringent.

HOW WE SHIP
In Canada, we send by air mail for small packages. Larger packages are sent by Expedited Mail, a special service of Canada Post. For an extra amount we can also ship via Xpresspost or even Priority Mail.

To the US, we use air mail or Expedited Mail-USA, depending on the value of the shipment.

To other countries, we use air parcel post or Xpresspost International, or first class international mail on very small packages, such as single CDs.
