International clients are asked to use PayPal, Wise, Visa, or American Express. Canadian customers may also pay by E-Transfer.

Please note that Canadian customers must add 5% of the total for GST.

We can still accept payment by personal cheque, but only in Canadian or American dollars.

PLEASE NOTE: We regret that the following surcharges apply when payment is being made by Visa, American Express, or PayPal: for Visa, 5%; for American Express, 3%; and for PayPal, 4%. (On PayPal this charge can be avoided if you pay using the ‘Friends and Family’ option.) We simply cannot afford to lose this amount on large transactions.

Exchange Rates

British, European, American, and Asian clients paying online through PayPal or by cards will be automatically charged by their service at the prevailing exchange rate for the Canadian dollar at the time of invoicing.

Postal Charges

Please note that books will be sent by Expedited Parcel Post in Canada and the United States, unless Air Express Post is specified. Books overseas will be sent by Air Express. It is foolhardy to commit anything to international post for any longer than is strictly necessary.

Due to continually rising postal rates and changes in regulations, and the varying sizes and weights of our books, it has become impossible for us to apply standard postal rates. Packing and postage are simply charged at cost.

Discount Schedule
