Shipping to Canada Just Got Easier for Organize-It Customers

Organize-It now offers its customers in Canada a simple, hassle-free online shopping experience through Canada Post Borderfree. Borderfree, a service of the Canadian post office, Canada Post, features a special secure Canadian shopping cart that integrates with Organize-It's online store, . Shoppers in Canada can choose the Canadian Checkout option at Organize-It, continue the checkout process as usual, and pay no brokerage fees or unexpected COD charges.

Organize-It customers in Canada are able to take advantage of the Canada Post Borderfree program beginning September 10, 2009. Shoppers can add and remove any of the thousands of items at to the secure shopping cart. When it's time to check out, they simply choose the Canadian payment option. Customers will then be taken to the Borderfree shopping cart, which is hosted by Canada Post Borderfree, to complete the transaction.

The Borderfree cart provides customers with exact shipping charges to Canada, plus any applicable duties and taxes levied by Canada or the shopper's provincial government. The price quoted by Borderfree is guaranteed, so there are no surprise charges or brokerage fees for customers. The shopping cart also converts all prices to Canadian dollars using the exchange rate of the day on which the order is placed. This ensures that Canadian customers pay a fair and correct price for their storage and organization products.

Chris Nylen, Organize-It general manager, says the storage and organization retailer has always had a large number of Canadian customers, and that number has been steadily growing. He notes that the Borderfree program will make shopping easier for both existing customers and new customers in Canada. "We decided to go with Borderfree, because it makes shopping much more convenient and economical for our Canadian customers," says Nylen. "Shoppers can see every charge in the exact amount of their own currency, so they know exactly what they're paying for. Of course, Canada Post is a trusted name, so shoppers feel assured that their purchase will cross the border and be delivered to their home without any hassle or unforeseen charges."

Organize-It worked closely with Canada Post Borderfree to ensure a seamless integration of the online store and the Borderfree shopping cart. Charges to Canadian customers, including the purchase price, taxes, duties and shipping, will be billed by Borderfree on behalf of Organize-It.
