Terms and conditions

Bumblebeads is a small home based online business in British Columbia, Canada.  Because we are considered a small online business (with less than $30,000 in revenue/last 4 quarters) we are not required to collect and remit GST (Federal Goods and Services Tax).  We do however need to collect and remit the British Columbia PST (or the sales tax that is required of us to collect for the province to which our products will be shipped.) Hair accessories do not qualify as child tax exempt…no matter how frilly or pink they are, we tried.

Tax charges are required to be calculated by the province the product is shipped to. Here is a breakdown per province of the tax that will be added to your purchase during checkout.

  • PEI – 14% HST
  • Newfoundland – 13% HST
  • Labrador – 13% HST
  • Nova Scotia – 15% HST
  • New Brunswick – 13% HST
  • Quebec – 9.975% PST
  • Ontario – 13% HST
  • Manitoba – 8% PST
  • Saskatchewan – 5% PST
  • Alberta – N/A PST
  • British Columbia – 7% PST
  • Yukon, NWT – N/A PST
  • NU – N/A PST

If you are in the United States, you will not be charged tax.  These tax rates are set up to be automatically calculated after you enter your shipping information during the checkout process.  If for any reason you are charged incorrectly, please do not hesitate to let us know and we will correct the charges.  (Otherwise it becomes your responsibility to report and pay the taxes due in your province for your purchases.)

We will do our best to hover over our computer to process and carefully package your orders as they are received, then we will ship your orders before 5 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays using Canada Post, unless otherwise requested and arranged with you, the customer. Our products are sent regular mail, and can take anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks to arrive. We cannot guarantee Canada Post’s shipping times nor can we offer refunds on lost merchandise. A tracking number option is available in our checkout page if you wish to have a tracking number for your order.

We can however guarantee that you will be 100% satisfied with our products.  If you are not 100% satisfied with your products, please send them back to us in new condition and we will refund your purchase amount. Return shipping is the responsibility of you, the customer.
