ARTICLE 7 – SHIPPING AND RATES
Our packages are shipped by Canada Post. It is also possible to ship your package by carrier. All your orders are shipped from our workshop in Québec. The time frame therefore depends on the option you choose when you purchase and it is Canada Post’s responsibility to be on time.
When purchasing an original or a reproduction, you will receive the tracking number of your order, by e-mail, when it is shipped. You can follow it on the carrier’s website.
Shipping charges are based on four things: the weight of the package, its dimensions, your postal code and the shipping option chosen with Canada Post. Thus, delivery costs vary according to these elements.
International shipping costs are based on the total weight of the items ordered. Customs clearance fees, taxes or other charges may apply. All these costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
Conditions for all deliveries: SAS Nature is not liable in the event of an unusual delay in the delivery by the carrier. The buyer is responsible for the accuracy of the delivery address provided. SAS Nature is not responsible for unclaimed packages within the prescribed time limits at the postal counter mentioned by Canada Post, in the event of your absence during delivery.
ARTICLE 8 – PAYMENT, TAXES AND INVOICING
Online payments are made via the secure payment site PayPal or by credit card (Visa or MasterCard), via the secure transaction site Square. As bank data is processed by our suppliers, it is not stored on our servers. We can’t under any circumstances be held responsible for theft or fraudulent use of your credit card or PayPal account when making a purchase on our platform.
For ecological reasons, we do not print invoices. Your invoice will be sent by e-mail. If you would like a hard copy, please add a note when ordering.
All prices posted on our website are in Canadian dollars and exclude taxes. Taxes appear when you pay, according to your postal code. In Québec, GST and QST apply, except for books on which only GST applies. In the rest of Canada, only GST applies. No taxes are charged for orders outside Canada; however, customs clearance fees, taxes or other fees may apply. All these costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
