PayPal is the faster, safer way to pay and get paid online, via a mobile
device and in store. The service gives people simpler ways to send
money without sharing financial information, and with the flexibility to
pay using their account balances, bank accounts, credit cards or
promotional financing. With 143 million active accounts in 193 markets
and 26 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global commerce,
processing more than 9 million payments every day. Because PayPal helps
people transact anytime, anywhere and in any way, the company is a
driving force behind the growth of mobile commerce and processed $27
billion in mobile payments in 2013. PayPal is an eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY)
company and contributed 41 percent of eBay Inc.'s revenues in 2013.
PayPal is headquartered in San Jose, Calif. and its international
headquarters is located in Singapore. More information about the company

All purchases within Canada accrue a Goods and Services Tax (GST) or a Harmonized Sales Tax. The current rate for British Columbia is 5%. The appropriate rate will be applied to your purchase based on your province of residence. All taxes are clearly detailed on your invoice. Please note the taxes are applicable based on the address of the credit cardholder making the purchase.
In the U.S.A
Purchases made by customers in the U.S.A are not subject to any Canadian taxes. However they maybe subject to duties and taxes when they enter into the U.S.A from Canada. Additionally, brokerage fees maybe incurred by the customer for clearing customs. We are not in a position to state what these maybe as they vary. Typically gifts of value less than $100.00 USD are not subject to the above, however we are unable to guarantee that this is the case. Any of the above taxes and fees are the responsibility of the customer. Each order is clearly marked "GIFT" on the customs declaration and the value of the item in CAD$ is stated as per U.S.A customs requirements, to minimize any delay in the receipt of your purchase.
