Does toyandparty.com apply sales tax?
Like all retailers in Canada we must collect and submit Sales Tax.
5% HST is applicable on all sales shipped anywhere in Canada. In Ontario the HST rate is 13% as that is the province our offices are located in.
Are credit card transactions safe?
We take the security of your personal and payment information very seriously at Toy and Party.
When you provide us with any personal information - your name, address, e-mail and credit card number - it is done on a secure server. One of todays most advanced security systems - Secure Socket Layers (SSL) - encrypts all information you provide before sending it to our own server. Only when it reaches the toyandparty.com servers is your information decrypted.
How can I tell if the ToyandParty website is secure?
When looking to see if a website is using a secure server you have two things to look for - the lock symbol built in to almost all web browser software and the address line which should start with https://.
One of the biggest questions we get is why the entire website is not shown with these security features. That is because the SSL functions slow down the data transmission, so it is only used in places that require security - entering your account name, password and payment details.
If you have any questions about the security of our website please feel free to contact us.
Will I be charged DUTY or Broker Fees?
For shipments across Canada: As a Canadian owned and operated company we have prepaid all Duty fees on all products we carry. There will never be an additional charge to you for any product shipped in Canada. When we set our prices online we calculate all duty, exchange rate and broker fees to come up with the best price we can offer. If you are comparison shopping online please take this into consideration when viewing sites based outside of Canada.
