Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

WOW. I have never seen spam this bad on BT. This has to be a new record. Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Gross. I'm sure the mods will delete them, but I'll flag as spam anyway.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I reported a few as well, though I kept losing track of which ones I'd hit and which I hadn't...surely they can see all of them though. Crazy stuff 😒

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeah, it keeps changing screen names unfortunately. Wah wah.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When your $35 ($48 CAD) colourpop order gets slammed with $17 of duties Smiley Sad  what bugs me the most is that $10 of that is just the "handling fee"!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

MINE DID TOO.  I order from colourpop all the time and have never got charged in Canada.  Canada post comes to my door yesterday and says I owe $13, $10 for handling fee and tax.  They said the value of my package was $54CAD when it was a $48 order, same as you.  So I paid more tax for a value of product I didn't even purchase?  

Anyone know why this is?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sydtomato Colourpop includes the GWP in the total order value. So if you received, say the birthday eyeshadow GWP with your recent order, that would add $5 to your total, bringing it to $40 value, which is $54 CAD. You may be able to see this in the value declaration form on your package.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes that's what they did! They added the value of the GWP even though I didn't pay for it, and I'm pretty sure they included the full value of the sets instead of the actual price. Not cool. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu Oh wow didn't even look at it closely at all my bad, that makes total sense.  Do you happen to know why I got charged a handling fee when i never have before.  I even made two colourpop orders about the first week of May and didn't get hit with any charges.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sydtomato If your package value is declared as above $20 CAD, you will have to pay tax + handling fee. But CBSA seems to select packages at random to impose these charges on. So sometimes you may get lucky and you don't have to pay anything.

 

I am totally fine with paying taxes, but the handling fees always kills the deal! And $20 CAD is such a low limit. US has a $800 limit.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu  Thanks for much for that info! I have gotten very lucky then.  Almost all my orders have been over $20 from Colourpop and other places.  I tried to look up info online and there is such mixed and vague info. $20 is just ridiculous, then businesses wonder why the online market in Canada is so low relative to US. I am also fine with paying taxes but the "handling fee" is a joke. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sydtomato You are welcome! I hope Canada increases this limit at least to a reasonable amount. Based on reports from some independent research institutes, it is observed that the Canadian Government spends four times more to implement this threshold than it actually collects in duty and tax revenue on low-value ecommerce purchases. Increasing the limit would be beneficial for everyone!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't mind paying at all. But paying on what I PAID not what you deem it to be worth. If I get a gift bag from Barneys or Saks, they are not adding the $200 "value" of the bag to my order! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM I agree! GWP should never be included in the total value. Actually, I have not come across any other company which does that, other than Colourpop. Definitely make me not want to order from them.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu

@greenteafueled @sydtomato

 

Same happened to me! They over inflated my value by $20 Canadian! Never again. I didn't want the stupid feebies anyway especially if they are going to inflated the value of the package for them. Never again with colourpop. Oh and they left out one item from my order Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChristalM So sorry to hear that Smiley Sad

Did Colourpop at least send out a replacement for the missing item?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Pollu Nope! They don't seem to care.
