Payment Options


From Canadian Clients, we accept:

- cheque

- e-transfer

- EFT / direct deposit

- PayPal

- credit card (in-person or over the phone)​​


From International Clients, we accept: 

- PayPal (preferred)

- USD cheque

- money order

- wire transfers*

*Please note that our account is with a small credit union, so international wire transfers need to be routed through a larger intermediary bank. The process for completing this type of wire transfer is more complicated and can lead to missing funds, funds being returned to your account (including additional charges for the failed transfer), and generally a lot of confusion for both parties. If a wire transfer is your only method of payment, please be prepared to call or visit your bank to complete the transfer, as most online forms do not request the necessary information for the transfer to work.
