Fiddleheads serves and ships to customers around the world. You will see all prices and policies are posted online in USD, most in CAD.
Fluctuations in the currency market makes it impossible for us to post multi-currency prices. To make it accurate, now that the Canadian dollar is weak against the USD, most prices are set in USD and some also in CAD. Canadian customers who wish to pay in CAD are welcome to contact us to be invoiced in CAD and we will charge you at the current exchange.
All orders outside of Canada must pay the USD price.
Canadian residents pay tax as applicable (GST & PST in BC, GST/HST for rest of Canada). Note our Paypal buttons have this tax added in already upon checkout. Any items drop-shipped from USA warehouses direct to Canadian customers and which are invoiced directly by us (not the site) will have no tax on shipping.
No tax for orders outside Canada.
