Payment Instruction

All prices are listed in US dollar (buyers may also pay by Canadian $ at the average of sell and buy US$/C$ rate at  https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=759 

Payment Options (Note: We do not accept USD paypal for large order >$500, unless you failed to pay with other methods)

• Wire Transfer: Preferred method for large amount. Our bank service fee $17.5 will be added to online invoice. (For large order from North America, this fee can be waived later)
For your convenience, our bank $17.5 service fee is already included in the invoice. About US$20 intermediary bank service fee for non-US/Canada buyers will be covered by us if order is over $1000.
For non-US/Canada buyers: If you like to wire C$ to our C$ bank account which would avoid intermediary bank service fee, we will not add our bank fee in the quote/invoice.
Not recommended for small order since too much unexpected bank service fee would be involved (We would have to charge US$25 third-party bank fee for US$ wire and C$10 for C$ wire for small  order).
