We like Canada - what a great place. We welcome Canadian customers, and hope we can make it easy for you to send payment. (Canada! Looking better all the time in comparison to the US! Aren't you lucky that you don't live here...) We can now accept payment online through PayPal, an easy way to pay by credit card or directly from your bank account. Online Requesting. PayPal costs you nothing, unlike a money order! We accept Canadian currency at your own risk (about C$1.00 = US$1.00, plus the 5% that the currency exchange charges us. For current exchange rate, go to http://www.xe.com/ucc/), or U.S. currency at your own risk (wrap currency well, and register the letter), or Canadian Postal Money Orders in U.S.$ only, or personal checks from a U.S. bank in U.S.$ only. Banks here charge up to $60 to process Canadian bank checks, even if in U.S.$! I know, it's an outrage! We refund in Canadian currency or by Credit Memo. If you pay through PayPal, we can refund this way.
POSTAGE TO CANADA for small parcels is not too much more expensive than to the US, so packet requests should use the same postage as the US chart (Postage and Packing). For books and heavy parcels, check http://ircalc.usps.gov for the rate. Choose the rate you prefer, and add that amount to your payment, plus $1.00 for packing.
ALL TYPES OF SEED, including tree and shrub seed and corn seed in small packets may now be shipped directly to Canada without import permit, phytosanitary certificate or delay. A few types such as wheat (Triticum) are prohibited.

OUTSIDE THE U.S. AND CANADA
Postage Outside the U.S.

NOTE: If you want a tracking number for your package, you must add US$13.95 for Registered Mail. There is NO tracking number without registering, and if you do not choose to register the package, we are not responsible if the package is lost in the mails.

We can now accept payment online through PayPal, an easy way to pay by credit card or directly from your bank account. Online Requesting. PayPal costs you nothing, unlike a money order, or bank draft!
All payments must be made in U.S. dollars only, by check or bank draft drawn on a U.S. bank only. We cannot accept checks drawn on banks outside the U.S., due to excessive charges imposed by our bank. You may send U.S. currency at your own risk, and we now accept cash payment in all currencies, but we recommend you register the letter. If you send non - U.S. currency, please add 5% (the currency-exchange charges us 5% to change currency). For an exchange-rate calculator, go to http://www.xe.com/ucc/. If you are sending currency from a country that uses Euros, please send Euros, not your old currency. Checks or drafts in US$ only.
If any items are out of stock, you must be able to accept a refund in U.S. dollars, or credit for future requests, or substitutions. If you pay through PayPal, we can refund this way. If you would like substitutes, please give an extensive list of acceptable alternates.
All requests will be shipped via AIRMAIL. For postage and packing, please TRIPLE the amounts shown in the table for U.S. customers (Postage and Packing). For bulk seed, books, kits, etc. go to http://ircalc.usps.gov and use the rate calculator (fill in your own country in field #1), then add $1.00 for packing.
Please check with your Ministry of Agriculture regarding any prohibited seeds. Most countries allow the importation of small amounts of flower seeds without an Import Permit or phytosanitary certificate. For most seeds, quantities under 100 grams are exempt from permit or certificate requirements. Most small requests pass customs with no problems without a phytosanitary certificate, so judge for yourself whether the cost of a certificate is greater than the small risk of having some seeds seized. We do not provide phytosanitary certificates. We are not responsible for any seeds seized by customs.
Please do not inquire as to whether we have shipped your request until at least 30 days after you mail it.
Note: Australia and New Zealand have extremely restrictive agriculture laws - it is nearly impossible to import seed into New Zealand, and Australia is not far behind. If you are in either of these countries be aware that your seeds may be seized by customs. We are not responsible for seeds that do not reach you! Request at your own risk! Books and GA-3 are OK to request for now.
