new Yoox codes and sales - post them here - Page 92
I'm sure they don't care about my business, since I haven't made too many purchases from them. However, Ill bet there are lots of Canadians that will feel the same when they get to check out.
I'm guessing you didn't place your order? I would have picked up the shirt I wanted yesterday, but it just won't be happening with $50 in taxes on top.
No, I didn't. I make a lot of frivolous spontaneous purchases at yoox. Mostly because the prices are decent and I won't be out of pocket much if it doesn't work out. That ends today, unfortunately.
Nooooo! Big trouble ahead for Canadian customers.
I just went to place an order while the 20% code was still active, and low and behold... at checkout Yoox is now charging LOCAL TAXES AND DUTY! This is on top of their normal shipping charges! So on a $203 order I'm being dinged with another $82 in shipping/duty/taxes! WTF?!
CANADIANS UNITE AND REVOLT!
Just tried and found out the tax/duty adds 30% on the top. Really, WTF?!
I have also been shopping with Yoox for years to Canada and was planning to buy more in the future. Now with this extra tax I might as well just buy when it goes on regular sale from a shop or department store. This is so disappointing for myself and I am sure many other Canadians. I plan on calling them for an explanation and reasons why I should still give them my money. Why do Canadians always get screwed with international shopping?
Much of the new fall-winter stock (see Kolor blazers, for instance) is priced at or slightly above the original merchandise retail price.
Yoox has just lost most of my business. I will probably never buy anything again unless it's in the sale section and there's a 20% code.
$500 item -20% coupon +28% tax = $512, so it almost evens out (but the buyer still loses in the end FFS)
EDIT: keep in mind this is the same company behind [full-price] TheCorner.com and the online store for Diesel.com (one among many "powered by Yoox") which DO NOT ship to Canada at all, even now, when random boutiques in deepest darkest continental Europe offer easy global shipping through Farfetch or their own online stores. I send them a message every now and again just to remind them there are Canadians who would buy from these stores if they offered the same damn international service they do (or did until today, apparently) to Canada through Yoox, but they just don't give a shit.

If anyone speaks to Yoox before I do can you please post any information that they give about why Canadians should pay this much and why we should continue shopping with them. It would be greatly appreciated. I cannot understand why they would risk losing thousands of customers and dollars.
