Ring Candles In Canada
If you have tried buying a ring candle in Canada you may have run into some disappointment. As it currently stands most of the main companies selling these candles are located in the United States and do not offer international shipping, not even up to Canada. There are various reasons why they choose not to ship across the border but I won’t get in to them too much for this post. (For a list of current ring candle companies that will ship to Canada see the bottom of this post)
While most ring candle companies do not ship outside of the US, you are not completely out of luck. There are a few other options you have if you are really set on getting some.
First, is mail forwarding.
For a fee you can set up a mailbox in the states where you are able to ship products and then have them delivered across the border right to your door. There are various companies that will go about doing this and it will be more expensive, but it might also be something you are interested in aside from just buying candles. Doing this will give you the ability to shop on all American websites which can open up a much wider variety of products. The fees I have found for this service range from around $5 to about $15 per package.
A quick google search for “mail forwarding” will bring up many options that offer this service or you can check out the one I found called Reship.
I am now actually using Reship to ship candles up to my address and so far it has worked pretty good! The one problem I had was that when my shipments come to the door I have to pay an additional duty fee which doesn’t come to very much in itself but the flat rate processing fee was also $10. I recommend consolidating your packages while they are at your Reship storage suite and then shipping a few things together to cut down on that cost. Let me say that this should be used only if you MUST have a certain product, the total cost when all said and done ends up being pretty steep so it is much better to just pick a ring candle company that will just ship to Canada.
Another option is an independent seller.
If you don’t want to go about with mail forwarding and want an even simpler way of doing it there are independent sellers like the ones on Ebay. If you have a look on Ebay.ca there are quite a few people listing ring candles that ship to Canada. Of course this also has a bump in price because of the import fees and tax you must pay.
Currently it is unknown when or if some of the other major ring candle companies will decide to ship to Canada but if you are itching to have one of these for yourself, the options above are a couple of ways to go about doing it.
Or, you could order from one of the following companies below. Although some of these are still US-based companies and do charge a higher shipping rate.
The companies that will ship their jewelry candles to Canada are:
Charmed Aroma (Canadian based company!)
Jewelry Candles (Now opened Canadian branch)
Lucky Girl Candles
Ice n Fire (Canadian based company!)
Candelaaa (Canadian based company!)
The following companies are all based in Canada and were recommended by other readers. I haven’t personally had the chance to try them out yet but if you have leave a comment below and share your experience!
