How lame can a retailer get?
Answer: hopefully not as lame as Everlane.
Got this back from customer service;
"Thanks for your note and interest in Everlane. We would love to start shipping to our northern neighbors right away; unfortunately, it's not as simple as it sounds (as we've learned). To ship internationally, traditional retailers typically work through third party logistics providers who deal with customs and paperwork. The retailer just sets up the backend APIs and works with their vendors around country-specific merchandising and inventory. Challenging but doable.
For us, it's even more complicated. Canada also demands label changes (e.g., bilingual and different content) that require us to work with our factories to change our merchandise. As you can imagine, that requires a longer lead time and more coordination, which we're working on.
We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we are aiming to be able to ship outside the U.S. within the next six months to a few countries and then to other destinations later in 2013. "
They site a weak shipping excuse, a yahoo store can ship to Canada.
How they can ship free to guam, europe and alaska (which is thru canada) but not to paid to canada, also why can every other store big and small can ship to canada?
Sighting non-existent bilingual requirement- Total BS there is only a retailing requirement with food(not enforced) none of my clothing, stuff etc has bilingual anything.
Customs- none under $100 and over its 3 line items if you really want or the shipper can it it- 1. what 2. quantity 3. value.
gee, it sounds like a receipt or packing slip.
This lameness just killed it for me, never ordering from them ever- not like I can anyway. ; ) its just so 1996.
