The company may also include an amount for faster shipping as sometimes things can get bogged down at the border. I suspect SU! takes all these fees into consideration and rolls them into their Canadian pricing. Has anyone asked how SU! arrives at its foreign prices?
I am Canadian wintering in the u.s. We pay the same percent of handling and shipping as you do here because I ordered last week.
here is no such thing as faster shipping to Canada !. it takes a couple of weeks At home from the time I place an order as opposed to a couple of days here. And as I have a friend as a demo I know the day she places the order.
As well there is no bogging down at the border with SU coming to canada. So I come back to the question why not make the prices in the cAtty in u.s. prices and then every thing will be equal and will take care of any fluctuation in changes in currency. No for whatever reason SU continues to so business in Canada for as long as they can get away charging what they like. It's no wonder people are turning to all the other companies that do not do this.
