Find the answer to that burning question.

checkout - payments

Store Credits & Gift Cards are forms of payment and not considered as discounts.

Store credits & Gift card codescan only be applied on the PAYMENT PAGE at checkout.

NO, If you are located in the USA, you can make payment in your either USD or CAD. If you wish to change your selected currency.

Head to the bottom of any page, you'll find the currency selector.

If you encounter any issues paying in USD from PayPal, this is most probably the result of the PayPal "verified address" buyer protection on your account.

Once you are transferred to the secure PayPal portal during check-out, we have no access or input. If your PayPal account and website account address are located in Canada, then PayPal may automatically convert your payment to CAD.

Due to the constant changes in international fund transfer regulations and PayPal policies, we cannot ensure that the following is up to date, but it should help to know where to find a solution.

The most common issues you may encounter are:

1. Your account default currency is set to CAD - make sure that you have added USD as an account currency.

2. There are no USD funds available in your account balance and your account is set to use the next payment method (credit card - bank account) - Make sure that your account is set to "My account balance" as the preferred payment option. Note: You will incur PayPal exchange rate fees if you choose to proceed. We recommend changing your checkout currency to CAD.

3. I only see credit card as PayPal payment method when transferred to PayPal - Make sure your "preferred payment method" is et to account balance. If so, then click on the credit card option, the next page should show your account balance option. - Make sure your account balance fund option is selected BEFORE selecting confirm.

4. You have set the site to CAD, then checkout and have CAD funds in your PayPal account balance. - Change the site currency to USD using the selector at the bottom of the page.Alternatively, you can you can change your preferred payment method when you are transferred to PayPal during the checkout. (Note: you will incur exchange rate fees in your PayPal account if you do this. We do not recommend this option).

Although you can checkout in either USD or CAD, we recommend you use the currency of your credit card source country.

This will avoid additional currency exchange fees being applied by your bank.

Although there a few exceptions, it is safe to say that only one discount can be applied to an order.

For example:

- An Alchemy Award reward points discount cannot be combined with a bulk purchase or sale / promotional discounts.

Overweight products are subject to a supplemental shipping charge.

This shipping supplement is excluded from any shipping discount.
