Dr. Pasemco, Alberta

"I didn't speak with anyone as I ordered online, but the service from that point on is UNBEATABLE. Our order was on our doorstep in 5 days and we live in the south east corner of B.C. Canada.
Great job."

Many thanks for your rapid service and to CANADA to boot! Wish we could get this kind of service from throughout the US shopping!!

What Can I Expect When Placing an Order?

Note that orders including installation pipe over 46" long cannot ship Postal and will be shipped UPS.

UPS Shipping Features

An inclusive one-time charge that includes ALL associated taxes, brokerage and duty fees. You will not incur any further charges or fees when you recieve your order. We guarantee it. And we even lower your brokerage and shipping fees at checkout, depending on the product and subtotal, by paying for part of them ourselves!

100% Guarantee

MD will pay any additional charge or fee or brokerage cost (Our negotiated brokerage fee for all orders over $20 is $14.50) incurred on your order when using UPS checkout. Your final price is your true, final price. If for any reason an additional fee occurs, MD will pay for it. However, if an additional fee is a result of choosing the wrong usuage option during checkout (business vs. residential), then you will be liable for that additional fee. This 100% Guarantee excludes any charges your credit card company may charge you such as commission or exchange rate fees.

Exception for guaranteed shipping rate: For areas in Canada that are only serviced through air shipment and our system doesn't catch it, you will receive a phone call regarding your order. Air shipments to these areas are very expensive and we will try to work out an arrangement with you for the new freight. There is no obligation to buy and you will not be charged unless an agreement is made, otherwise the order will be canceled. If a credit card charge occurs you will be remitted if no order is placed.

Postal Shipping Features

Lower shipping costs (usually) and a lower final charge amount online then UPS for most orders. However the associated fees and taxes will be collected from you when you receive the order.

How Is the Exchange Rate Being Applied to My Order?

Although all charges are being itemized and paid in U.S. Dollars, real-time exchange rates are being calculated and costs converted to Canadian Dollars for the appropriate assessment of duties, taxes, and customs preparation fees (when using UPS, not Postal) which are based on Canadian purchase values. The credit card statement's line item charge on your credit card bill will be your banks conversion of funds from USD to Canadian.

Determining Applicability of Duty Charges and Amount

When using UPS shipping, not Postal, your duty rates are determined by such factors as commodity classification, country of manufacture, quantity and value of the goods being imported. There will be an assessment on the total value of the commodity that is non-exempt from duty in accordance with NAFTA. If your order contains items requiring a duty assessment this will be itemized in your cart total prior to checkout. Postal shipping does not calculate or charge for any taxes or duties. They are paid when the product is recieved.

How Are Province Taxes Determined and Charged?

When using UPS shipping, the tax rate depends on your ship-to-destination. Please refer to the chart below to determine the relevant rate for you. Note that a fraction of a percent is added to GST or HST above the 5% by UPS for a UPS brokerage tax. When using Postal shipping there will be no tax charged online, you will pay the taxes and fees upon receiving your order.

How Are Canadian Shipping Costs Determined?

UPS shipping charges are dynamically calculated by our site-integrated UPS rate generator and determined by the carrier service type, ship-to-destination, number of packages, and the respective weight and dimensions of each.

Postal shipping charges are determined by the Postal categories and determined by the ship-to-destination, number of packages, and the respective weight of each.

How Are Canadian Customs Entry Preparation Fees Determined?

For UPS shipping, customs preparation fees are also programmatically calculated in accordance with our UPS Brokerage rate of $14.50 for the product sum of $20 and more.


Your credit card will be billed in U.S. dollars by on behalf of MD. Manufacturing immediately upon completion of your online order. "MD Manufacturing" will appear as the billing company on your credit card statement.
