The amount of tax calculated depends on many factors, including the destination of the shipment and the type of item(s) purchased.
All items shipped to destinations in Canada are subject to Canadian Goods and Services Tax ("GST") at 5% or Harmonized Sales Tax (“HST”) at 15%.
In addition, Provincial Sales Tax ("PST") or Quebec Sales Tax (“QST”) might apply at applicable CRA rates, depending on the item(s) and the destination of the shipment.
Generally, tax is calculated on the total selling price of each individual item. In accordance with applicable tax laws, the total selling price of an item generally will include item-level shipping and handling charges, item-level discounts, and an allocation of order-level shipping and handling charges and order-level discounts.
No tax is calculated when purchasing gift cards; however, purchases paid with gift cards can be subject to tax.
