Effective Date: January 1, 2020
The term “you” (“your”, “yourself”, “User”) refers to the person accessing or using the Site or our Service, or the company or organization on whose behalf that person accesses the Site or our Services.
While we always like to be available for you, the Internet is inherently unreliable so your access to and use of the Site may be interrupted, slow, or even inaccessible at times. Shippsy also needs time to update the Site, and while Shippsy tries to do this during slow periods, Shippsy cannot always wait or schedule downtime that way. These basic terms apply to your use of Shippsy. Shippsy will terminate your account if you violate any of these terms:
- You must be 18 years or older or at least the age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside to use Shippsy.
- You must be a human. Shippsy does not permit accounts registered by automated methods.
- You are responsible for all content you post.
As the provider of the Service, Shippsy will receive items ordered by you, the consumer, from the United States, and deliver the items to an address within Canada.Items may be picked up at selected Shippsy pickup facilities within Canada,or delivered to your final destination by a method chosen at Shippsy’s discretion, which may be a courier directly employed by Shippsy or a third party service provider. Once items arrive at a Shippsy facility, they will be available for pick up within 30 days. After 30 days, the items may be subject to storage fees, and may be disposed of if not claimed within 60 days. Pallet shipments will be available for pick up within 14 days. After 14 days, the items may be subject to storage fees, and may be disposed of if not claimed within 44 days.
By using the Service for transferring goods from the US to Canada, you hereby authorize Shippsy and any agent chosen by Shippsy to act as your agent and representative in communicating with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to clear your item and to account for duties and taxes. All duties and taxes will be payable prior to final delivery or pick up of your item.
Shippsy may require proof of your identification from time to time, and your failure to provide such proof may result in delays in the Service or suspension of your access to the Service.
All items to be transported through the Service must be shipped to Shippsy from the United States. Items which are shipped to Shippsy from outside of the United States will not be processed for entry into Canada.
As a business to consumer service, all items transported through the Service will require a commercial invoice in order to clear customs, and items cannot be declared as gifts. The Service cannot be used to send personal gifts from one person to another. Items sent as a personal gift without a commercial invoice will not be permitted entry into Canada, and the user of the Service will be responsible for all fees associated with the return or disposal of the item. Items which are intended to be sent as a personal gift must be transported directly by a courier to the final addressee, and Shippsy cannot act as an intermediary. For greater clarity, items may be ordered from an online retailer as a gift for delivery to Canada, as long as there is a commercial invoice accompanying the order, and the shipment is not being declared as a gift to customs.
You are fully responsible for the content and nature of any items which are transported through the Service, and it is your responsibility to ensure that the item can be transported into Canada. This responsibility includes complying with all applicable taxes, import and export laws, and any other shipping restrictions, and making all necessary and accurate customs declarations.It is your own responsibility to be aware of and understand these requirements. Your failure to comply with these requirements may result in the destruction or return of the item to the seller at your own expense, for which Shippsy will not be held responsible.Furthermore, Shippsy strictly prohibits any illegal activity performed through or in relation to the Services.

Any such payments may be charged to a credit card on file (for more information, refer to the Chargeback section below).

You expressly agree and give Shippsy consent to apply chargeback to you or your account, in the form of direct debit of your credit card, for any of the following reasons:
• Any errors or discrepancies in declaration, such as those pertaining to weight, dimension, content or value of items;
• Failure to pick up or otherwise complete the order after duties or other fees have been paid on your behalf;
• Any financial penalties incurred by Shippsy and/or administrative penalty as a result of errors caused by you; and
• Any billing or human errors by Shippsy, third parties (such as partner shipping carriers), and/or you which caused your account to be undercharged.
If Shippsy determines that a Chargeback is necessary, it will notify you of the Chargeback by email. Where the Chargeback is a result of an error in declaration by you, a further administrative penalty as set out herein will be added to the Chargeback amount.
If Shippsy is not able to process the Chargeback due to credit card or any other issues, the amount due will remain outstanding and interest will be added to and payable on all overdue amounts at the maximum percentage allowed under applicable laws.
