Shopify incorrectly charging PST on Canada Post postage shipping to British Columbia (BC) This post is outdated
I'm a Canadian Shopify store owner located in Winnipeg. Beginning in late February, Shopify started charging adding PST on postage on Canada Post shipments to BC in the checkout page. Anyone else notice this?
Shopify charging pst on Canada Post shipping assumes that I and all other Shopify shop owners are going to create a Canada Post shipping label through Shopify. If I create a shipping label to BC with my own Venture One Canada Post account, I am not being charged the pst.
Why would Shopify be any different than me when purchasing a label. Canada Post would not be treating me any different than Shopify when collecting BC’s pst and I believe that Canada Post would be at the top of BC’s taxation department’s scrutiny.
If Shopify insists on applying pst on Canada Post labels, I would like the tax overrides on shipping fixed. I currently have a shipping pst override of 0% set for BC but it doesn’t work, otherwise I wouldn’t have the pst showing on shipping for orders from BC. I would like the ability to tax override your shipping pst applied to Canada Post shipping to BC and I will purchase my shipping labels through my own Canada Post account.
Makes we wonder, if Canada Post isn’t charging Shopify pst on shipping labels, where is the money going? Is it lining Shopifys pockets? Let fix this improperly charged tax and let also fix the tax overrides that don't work in the admin.
