Items Sold by a third-party seller and Fulfilled by Amazon from outside Canada makes it easier for you to purchase more products without leaving Amazon.ca.
These products are clearly identified on the detail page as being fulfilled by Amazon from outside Canada. When you purchase these products, you are purchasing them from a third-party seller in another country, who sells the product directly to you from outside Canada. These items are fulfilled by Amazon.
When you buy these products, you are the importer of record and must pay import duties, taxes and fees when the products arrive in Canada. We simplify this process by estimating the amount that will be due (the "Import Fees Deposit") and adding it to the amount you pay. You authorize international carriers partnering with Amazon to pay this amount to Canadian authorities on your (or the recipient's) behalf. If Amazon's estimate for the Import Fees Deposit is greater than what is needed, you will be automatically refunded the difference to your original payment method. You will never be asked to pay more than the estimated Import Fees Deposit.
The payment of import fees is the responsibility of the importer and is levied based on Canadian law. Import Fees Deposits will vary depending on the selected shipping method.
Customs regulations and tax rates applicable to certain goods may change between the date the taxes and duties were estimated and the date of import into Canada. Duties and taxes are calculated based on the market value (actual price before any promotions) of the product and not the price after Amazon promotions. You won't be charged additional fees if the actual Import Fees exceed the Import Fees Deposit we estimated. If the actual Import Fees are less than the Import Fees Deposit collected by us on your behalf, you'll automatically be refunded the difference to the payment method you used for the order. You'll receive a notification email confirming the amount of the refund. The process takes up to 60 days from the shipment date.
