Canada Help Page
All shipments to Canada are first sent to our consolidation center in Waterloo, Iowa, in order to generate the documents required by customs. Once all of your requested items arrive, the order will then ship complete from the consolidation center to the customer. For all Canadian shipments, please add 5-7 days to the normal United States shipment times.
We accept payments by major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), PayPal, check, and wire transfer. Unfortunately, Google Checkout is NOT accepted for Canadian orders. All funds are billed and credited in United States dollars, not Canadian dollars. LightingShowPlace.com is NOT responsible for any fees incurred for currency conversion.
Shipping to Canada
Your order can be tracked online 24/7 by logging into your account. Click the "My Account" link at the top or bottom of any LightingShowPlace.com page to login and view your orders and their current status.
You will receive an emailed tracking number once your complete order has left our Iowa consolidation center and has been successfully shipped across the border. In some cases, you may receive a tracking number that shows a destination address in Waterloo, Iowa. This is tracking your shipment from our drop ship vendor to our Cross Dock center. You will receive a separate tracking number once the order has shipped across the border to its final destination.
Taxes, Duties, and Fees
Our Canadian customers will pay taxes based on the province they live in. Taxes will either be the 5% GST + appropriate PST or the combined HST. You are also charged appropriate duties at the time of purchase. By ordering goods from LightingShowPlace.com, you hereby authorize LightingShowPlace.com's licensed Canadian customs broker chosen by LightingShowPlace.com to act as your agent, and to transact business with the CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) to clear your merchandise, account for duties and taxes, to return merchandise through LightingShowPlace.com's Licensed Canadian Customs Broker, and prepare and submit refund claims on your behalf for any merchandise that you return. You understand that the CBSA will send any refund of duties and taxes that were paid on the returned merchandise to the broker, and that you will obtain the refund directly from LightingShowPlace.com. In this connection, you also authorize the customs broker to endorse any refund cheque issued by the CBSA in your name, so that LightingShowPlace.com can be reimbursed.
Returns from Canada
We strive to streamline the returns process. Please be aware that whether you have a general or defective return, anytime you send something back across the border, certain documents are required by customs to clear the shipment. We'll provide you with these documents along with detailed instructions of where to place them when you return the items to ensure you're not charged any taxes or duties to return them and to ensure that they clear customs with no delay.
Please follow all of the instructions included with your return authorization. Processing Canadian returns can take 1-2 business days longer in order for us to generate all of the appropriate customs documents.
