    Correct -- they've ended.

    Have any Canadians noticed eBay's "Global Shipping Program" popping up in auctions? It is analogous to the duty fees Yoox has added (which were always standard with merchants like Mr. Porter and Neiman Marcus), but it applies to individual sellers.

    It isn't mandatory, and I don't think eBay ever explained it to sellers properly, because whenever I see the notice and contact the seller about it, they are surprised to hear about it. They always offer to ship the traditional way (buyer just has to request a revised invoice after winning the auction), but who knows if this system might eventually become mandatory the way Paypal payments did.

    What I want to know most is where the absurd numbers are coming from. Import duties are 28% at Yoox and 34% at eBay in the case below (not sure if eBay always uses the same percentage).

    I won't be buying anything online at these rates. My purchases in Canada have been almost nil in the last few years due to our 13% HST, but paying 2-3x that for seasons-old stuff is just going to drive me back to the crummy offerings of local retailers.

    It's a highly undesirable trend in eCommerce from a consumer point of view, that's for sure. But it will be interesting to see whether it dismays and dissuades international buyers to the point that the merchants have to revise their calculus. In the meantime, Canadian stores might even see an uptick -- and probably wonder what the heck is going on.

    Because co. like Yoox steal tax revenues from Canada while stealing revenues and causing job loss in retail sector. Not to mention the capital flows out of the country never to return. As much as I enjoy online shopping it destroys brick and mortar businesses and as a result causing further unemployment and depression of economy.
    Just my opinion.

    That is a good point but what shops in Canada have the selection of Yoox? I would happily buy from a Canadian retailer but we are very limited when it comes to mens clothing in Canada. If there was the Canadian version of Yoox I would be buying from them.

    Wow! I made a purchase last week and seem to have beaten the taxes/duty. This is horrible news. Scratch yoox off the list of online retailers from which I'll now be purchasing. I wouldn't mind buying from B&M stores in Canada if they didn't outright steal from consumers. The latest example of which was my purchase of a Boglioli K Jacket online from Italy for $450, which I could have bought at Harry Rosen's for $2000+. Sounds unbelievable, but this is the reality for Canadians.

    Yea, check it and realize that you could've bought it 2 weeks ago cheaper when codes were still active.

    In my country, most of these brick and mortar shops who retail high-end Italian brands usually cheat and scam customers, charging 500%-1000% (like 500 USD for the old collection Caruso tie or shirt or 5000 USD for Attolini jacket!) from the past seasons collections, faking sales by raising prices beforehand, selling horrible stuff and trying to pass it as fashion or stylish.

    And they really abuse local customers who dont know what the fair price should be or judge by prices they saw in shops around Piazza di Spagna.

    Because of them people cant afford a reasonably priced Italian suit or jacket; because of them chain stores are able to sell stuff from Zara and H&M at super high costs (like 50USD for a T-shirt); because of them cheap imported shit from China and Turkey saturates the streets and offices.

    I love Yoox and the likes, because I want to see the owners of these shops out of their businesses.

    These office suits (not necessarily lime, but also pink and pistachio) had been rendered too posh and subsequently banned.
